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

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.

Metalchopz (2263) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2011
Originally rated June 2006. This one pours a golden colour with a fizzy white head that dissipates quickly, leaving close to no lace. The carbonation is quite heavy and the nose is of cereal malt. Written 4.8% ABV on the front label. Watery and slick mouthfeel. Smooth, with hardly any bitterness. Mild-sweet malt with touches of grass in the finish and light apples in the aftertaste. A thin layer covers the brew the whole way. A bit overpriced, not the best premium lager, but nothing offensive, so would drink again if given by someone.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2012 Pretty average lager. Nothing too interesting, but worth consuming I suppose.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2012 341 ml bottle. pours golden with a small white head. aromas are of sweet pale malt and nobel hop. flavours are an awesome blend of the aromas. this is the best discount lager available in ontario. a fantastic effort from this cottage brewer/////the current canned version isnt nearly as good as the old buck a beer bottles.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2010
50ml can thanks to bobsy.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow. Small head that is short lived. No lacing.
Aroma : Veggies, citrusy hops, lots of malt.
Taste : Lots of malt. Light hops. Finish very malty with light hops.
Overall : Highly drinkable and refreshing. Nice malty finish but still not that good.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle- Thanks D for the bottle- Pours into the glass, a pale golden body with a spritzy white fizz that dies quick. Minute lace is also here. Aroma is mainly sweet grains, with no real hops presence. Grass/hay are also present. Not too descript, but no offense taken. Flavours are sweet grassy grain, with a touch of suragy malt and corn water. Ok flavour. FInishes with no real attitude, and little quality, but does not upset to score under 3 for palate. Just ok.

piscator34 (1960) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 17, 2010
Canned sample. Pale gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of pilsner malt, faint herbal hops, and a touch of canned vegetables. Favors are heavy on pilsner malt, along with some smooth corn grits, and dry black peppery hops. A bit odd on the palate with a bit of corn-like creaminess, followed up by some sharp leafy bitterness on the finish. Seems a bit disjoint overall, but could be worse.

markas101 (1841) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 21, 2009
355 ml can, Toronto, ON, Canada. Medium golden colour, smooth creamy head. Very mild hop aroma. Slightly skunky first sip with a sweetness that lingers. Easy drinking but not that interesting.

DeanF (1709) - Nunavut, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
No head but plenty of carbonation, apple juice body. Aroma of skunky hops. Flavour is sour hops with lemon notes. Floral and planty, somewhat refreshing, but certainly not an attractive brew - drink it from the can.
