COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like the region itís from, our all-malt Muskoka Craft Lager is a getaway from the average. Thatís because itís 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 youíve been waiting for

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.

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!

Can. Light gold pour with a white head. Little aroma. Honey, white bread, lemon type thing. Fine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

patricks110 (2409) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2011
The pour is a light golden straw with a thin fizzy white head. Some moderate carbonation. The aroma is grainy with a light grassy hop and mostly cereal malt. Sweet and grainy with light hops. A slick and somewhat oily mouthfeel with no carbonation in the taste. Drinkable and fresh, but not much else.

Typical lager, decent taste, not a whole of aroma, I would drink this again.

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

DeanF (2342) - Alberta, 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.

piscator34 (2331) - 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.

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.

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.
