473ml can. Pours a copper-red colour with an off-white head which sticks around for a while. Smells bittersweet, with citrus and malt, and some candy-like aromas. Tastes sweet. A great beer, would recommend for sure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
The first thing that got my attention was its honey brown color. Then this gorgeous tall head and brilliant caramel smell hit me.
The head disappeared quicker than i would’ve liked, but the caramel flavour stuck with me the entire way through, aftertaste and all.
Could not get over its hazy honey color. Looks like i’m sipping on pure honey.
However, I am not entirely sure why Muskoka insists on having these floral flavors. Every beer i’ve had made by them has reminded me of perfume to some degree. I’m not saying their beer is bad just that they need to take it down a notch with the flowers.
Right now i’m enjoying the canned version of this beer and it lacks the carbonation i’m sure the true version has.
Overall its a pretty good cream ale, but I would rate quidi vidi’s cream ale way above it simply because a cream ale should not taste fruity in my opinion.

Clear amber pour with thin white head; about 1 finger. Little lacing. Aroma of herbs, dried fruit (raisins mostly), grass and caramel. Flavour is a decent balance of malty sweetness and herbal, grassy hops; again, some dried fruit. Finish has decent notes of raisins and apricots with a mild bitter end. Some alcohol astringency.

16 ounce can. Pours a deep reddish copper color with a medium white head, doesn’t look like a cream ale! A light nose of fruit and dusty malts. The flavor is a clean tasty mix of caramel, light toasted malts, some strawberry. Good. Very drinkable.
