COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the region it’s from, our all-malt Muskoka Craft Lager is a getaway from the average. That’s because it’s carefully aged and handcrafted to be uniquely flavourful, yet remarkably easy-drinking. Made from North American hops and malt, and winner of Canadian Lager of the Year, this delicately balanced thirst quencher is the refreshing departure you’ve been waiting for

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle, courtesy of matt7215 (thanks!). Looks ok - medium yellow, small but thick white head, lots of streaming bubbles. Grainy aroma, maybe some light fruity notes (hops?). Taste - standard stuff but clean: grainy, a weird sort of fruity finish (not really hops though). Medium body for the style. Decent enough, might enjoy it in the summer or something after some work outside, but not really enough else here to come back otherwise.

probstblueribbon (2916) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2008
341 ml bottle in a six-pack from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a frail white foam. Aroma: Grains, cereals, light grassy hops, a touch of old apple juice, Palate: Medium+ body, fairly soft carbonation, smooth and surprisingly substantial. Reminiscent of a Pilsner in a way. Flav.: Much like the nose, mainly grain/cereal, with a bit of grassy hops and some light non-descript fruitiness; lightly off-dry with a wee hint of bitterness (quite wee) and a very light caramel apple finish.

Didn’t realize I was buying a discount beer until I paid. Not bad, all things considered.

GregClow (2891) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2003
Nice golden colour. Fresh, grassy aroma with a hint of hops. Crisp mouthfeel with bready malt flavour and more hoppiness in the finish than I expect from an Ontario lager. A pleasant surprise.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
Canette 473ml. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés, léger de sirop de maïs avec des notes de légumes bouillis et de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées) ainsi que de faibles traces épicées (poivre doux). Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux faibles notes crémeuses et aqueuses. Léger goût de légumes bouillis sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés avec des notes de sirop de maïs ainsi que de faibles traces de beurre puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes amères de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées). Post-goût court-moyen, composé de notes amères de houblon herbeux.

12.26.04 341ml bottle thanks to Secret Santa. A surprise in the mix, for sure. This beer is pale and golden like the beer in commercials, little visible eff. Aroma is pleasantly grainy, light, herbal. Flavor is quite bland but with a clean grassy-dry finish; somewhat salty. In a local pub, you could do worse. Cheers, Santa!

473ml can. Gold pour, small white head with modest lacing. Aroma has grains, grass and straw notes. Taste is pretty grainy, some sweetness in the middle, faint hop note. Grainy aftertaste, light body, lots of carbonation. To my surprise this was pretty tasty for a pale lager,

Spab (2388) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2010
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear deep gold with modest-sized white head. Aroma of grainy malt and light grassy hops. Taste is grainy, but more balanced. Lightish bitterness in finish. Ok, nothing more.

cfrancis (2355) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2011
Pours a clear slightly dark golden yellow with a small quickly disappearing white top. Aroma is mostly light malt and a hint of hop. Taste is mostly a solid bready malt profile with a slight hop. Well done lager.

Thanks to Joey Capps for the bottle. Not much of an aroma, herbal and sweet. Decent balance, cleanish finish.
