1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Gold pour with lots of lasting head. Scent had that ’generic beer’ smell. Fairly robust for a light beer but still has that ’lite taste’ Better then the Trafalgar I just tried but not really that good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2010-07-15. Crisp yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Mild aroma, grassy hop character. 5+ Flavour is similar, very mild bitterness, light grassy hops. Average palate suits it, lightly carbonated. Pretty decent for a lighter beer, but its pretty mild and simple overall. Not super exciting, but decent. Can from the LCBO, Toronto

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I tried this beer on July 27, 2010 after purchasing a Muskoka Taster Pack from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent medium gold with a huge bubbly white head which quickly disappeared. The aroma was grassy malt and weak floral hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was grainy malt, some weak hops, and a bitter metallic finish - but the flavour was certainly better than a lot of ’non-light’ pale lagers in North America.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can [473ml]. Pours a clear bubbly pale gold with a large somewhat-lasting fluffy white head. Aroma of light grassy hops, grain, biscuity malt and some honey sweetness -- decent. Flavour’s light but nice, starting with a good amount of grassy hops (for the style) with a good malt backbone, some light honey sweetness, fruit and a decent bitter finish. Average to medium bodied. I’m sure they added "Light" to the name to get the Ontario sales but it’s unnecessary as many Pilseners are on the lighter abv side as it is and also to their credit, it’s on style, something some other Ontario Pilseners aren’t -- I’ll be getting more as it’s a great Summer beer.
