2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Re-rate: originally wasnít impressed with the aroma or taste, accidentally bought it again, this batch not too bad except somewhat weak taste. Dunno, maybe first pack was off.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 mL Can. Light gold body with a foamy-bubbly white head that settles to a ring leaving lots of spotty lace. Aroma of grains, yeast, hay, a hint of honey, and floral notes. Flavor light sweet malt with a subtle accent of honey, very mild aftertaste, and a nice clean finish. A light-bodied beer, this is one of the better summer beers Iíve come across. Brownie points for it being all-malt as said on the label.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Marked Craft Lager, 473 mL can. Pours a straw yellow with a thick head that disappears almost instantly, leaving lace behind. Picking up a little indistinct citrus on the nose, grass and a little tea and not much else. Taste is similar, nothing noteworthy. Goes down kind of like soda water. Designed to quench thirst and not much else. A disappointing offering from a brewery that knows how to brew good beer.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2010 473ml can from the LCBO. Pours a dark yellow, with no head. A little malt in the aroma, but not much else. A bit bland and a touch on the sweet side, but a drinkable lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is the best cheap beer I have ever had! For a buck a beer, I was not expecting such a dramatic improvement over the regular similarly priced cheap swills. For all you macro and cheap beer drinkers, look no further. This is indeed the holy grail of a buck a beer. Highly recommend if youíre at a bad bar with no other option except local macros, or if getting drunk is your goal of the night. It was for the party I brought it for. Everyone was amazed that it was so much better than regular buck a beers. But naturally, I wouldnít buy it if I had better options.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2009 These seem to be disappearing quickly off the shelves now at beer stores around here. Perhaps the fact that it is slightly cheaper than $1 a bottle (making it the cheapest beer in the store) is to blame. However, this beer is surprising in how much better it is than other Ontario buck-a-beers (or other generic macros). This lager dares to offend the Canadian drinking public by introducing a smidgeon of bitterness into its taste. When looking for a cheap beer, this is one that will convince you that what youíre drinking is indeed a beer. In a pinch, this is the best value low-cost beer Iíve tried (in Canada). Iíll probably keep these in my mini-fridge at university.
Update: I believe it is time for a re-rate. Whatever it is (could it be a little aging?), this batch of Muskoka I have now significantly outweighs my previous rating. Sweet malts, a little alcohol and a tiny bit of hops are in the aroma. The flavour is great -- malts are somewhere in between fruity and caramel, and hops blanket and surround the malts. Smooth. One of the better lagers Iíve had.
