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

Has a really odd taste that I wasn't expecting. Has a slight raspberry taste with a bit of an acidic bite like viniger and bitterness to it. Cloudy yellow gold. I don't think I would buy this again. Given to me or found in a bar full of labbats and molson I would have it though. Nothing special.

6 pack from the LCBO. Consumed in one evening. This beer is yet another great example of how buck-a-beers can actually be pretty damn tasty. Mediocre malt body, bland and standard, no adjuncts, but the hops really shine in this one. Really nice dryness, bitterness, and lemony aspect to the whole experience (all more or less at the same time). Makes a great party beer, or just a great casual sitting around, not-wanting-to-drink-an-Imperial-Stout beer. Giver a try. Ontario’s new slogan should be: "Ontario, land of buck-a-beers, which are actually pretty decent!"

Bottled sample at Jw Marriott in Muskoka. Fairly clear colour. Good amount of hops. Good afternoon beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Henry’s, near Midland ON. Pours golden clear. Aroma of grassy hops. Taste is creamy with a clean finish. A fine lager.

I tried this beer on April 22, 2010 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent pale golden colour with a 1/2" white head that disappeared quickly. The aroma was grainy malt, weak hops, and acidic tones. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was grainy malt and wet metal. Not a great beer.

bulldogops (1050) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2011
500mL can from LCBO taster pack. Nothing exciting. Aroma is borderline gross, very tinny and heavy on the corn, bland malt. Pale yellow pour, bubbly white foam. No highlights, just another lager in a sea of mediocrity.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
Single can purchased from an LCBO in Ottawa, Ontario on 06/06/2012. Colour: Medium-light yellow with no head. Nose: Malt dominant. A trace of flowery perfume flutters around - and some soap. Taste: Light sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Standard lager, with some vanilla notes among the overwhelming malt. Corn as well. Serviceable.

can. Poured clear straw coloured with a thin white head. Aroma of hay. Mouthfeel is creamy and light. Flavour is bready malt and finishes with a lingering bitterness.

Tessic (894) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2008
This lager poured a light yellow colour with next to no head, even after a vigourous pour.l To the nose there are scents of corn, hopps and a little ripe fruit. First taste was smooth but a little watery. Not much of an aftertaste. Flavours of corn, sweet malt and spice??? Finish is nothing. a faint beer flavour plus corn. Flavour just seems to disappear. Not too bad but lifeless.

shorlin (664) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
Colour is nice, little darker than macro lager. OK head retention. Aroma is surprisingly malty. Not too malty, but enough to know that this is a well-made beer. taste is great, good sweetness but also some bitterness. Feel is light/medium, but very drinkable with no off characteristics. Aftertaste has that bitterness, but very pleasant all around. Good beer.
