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

Scent of oak, honey, and roasted malt. Clear straw colour. Flavour of honey, malt, and biscuit. Medium body with mild carbonation. A pretty solid lager.

I was surprised to see a 24-pack of this in the value section section at The Beer Store at a buck-a-beer, not sure if it was a mistake but I picked up 24 of these with no problem. Pours more golden than the average pale lager with a slightly better taste and a clean finish with a tiny touch of hops at the end. Its easily the best buck-a-beer out there, no point in buying anything else if you’re looking for something in that price range.

Tiger_08 (137) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2012
Aug 1 2012. 345ml bottle pours clear pale straw yellow with an inch bubbly white head. Head fades to cap and leaves some lacing for half the beer. Aroma is of sweet lemon grass and subtle cereal and grain malts. No hops on nose. Taste is WAY more subtle than smell. Same elements but hard to distinguish or notice at all; is that why they call it "delicate?" After second bottle I can say its definitely easy drinking and palate is very crisp and dry with good carbonation, but no hops bite even after 2. Too forgettable to be Canada’s best lager (who says so anyway?). Won’t pay craft price for macro knock-off again.

Poured light golden colour with small foamy head. Earthy, grassy aroma, slight sweetness. Mostly the same grassy flavour, and not much else. Smooth mouthfeel.

Diablo9845 (62) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2007
Wasn’t expecting ANYTHING out of this beer, after all, minus deposit it works out to less than a buck a beer! Nice golden colour, better than the typical. Not much head, if any with a slightly hoppy aroma. Light on the palate and easy to drink, but fairly bland in flavour. Good for the money for sure!

YigSvartka (58) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
Translucent golden hue, served cool, no head. Nearly imperceptible aroma consisting of honey and yeast. Taste is much better. Still extremely smooth and refreshing akin to any other pale lager, but a pleasantly sweet aftertaste remains that surpasses the vile finish with most macro lagers. A wee bit of bitterness makes it more complex as well. Would have preferred this ice cold though.

bdettweiler (57) - KITCHENER, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
Golden yellow with a pale, quickly fading head. Sweet malty, floral and light citrus on the nose. Mouthfeel is slightly watery with average carbonation. Taste is pretty much the same as the nose, with a little fruitiness. not much hops in front, but a (very) little citrusy hops on the finish.
