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

Pretty decent lager with a semi-full body. Not much in the way of depth other than the malts and on the slightly sweet side, but quite smooth, almost creamy. Will buy again.

Can. Clear Yellow pour. Tiny layer of large bubbles for a head that immediately disappears. Light sweet grainy malt aroma. Taste is similar, maybe a touch of honey.

Pours a golden colour with a 1/2" head. Tastes of sweet-ish malt and bready with citrus undertones. Not to over the top, but finely balanced. Iíd have it again.

Reviewing from notes based on the Muskoka variety pack I got a while ago. Didnít have much head or flavor, a typical malty lager. Comparable to drinking a bottle of water.

A can from the Beer Store, thought I would pick up a lager or two, for guests. After a bike ride I thought what the hell, give one a try. Disappointed ! Yep No head, virtually tasteless, thin As my Dad used to call American beer, a boy and a girl in a canoe ( fuckin near water) Muskoka I love your stuff, this one not

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.

YigSvartka (63) - 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.

First Review : ) Purchased as part of the Muskoka Survival Pack. Initial pour is a light amber pour with minimal head, Beer is slightly cloudy, head dissipates rather quickly. Mildly malty with little hop aroma. Initial tastes are a mild hop flavour that quickly turns into a sweet, bread-like flavour that ends in a dry finish. Thin mouthfeel weak body. Ultimately a generic craft lager. Not great, but not terrible by any means. Still better than any macro brew out there.

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.

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

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