COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At the turn of the century, Walkerville was known across North America for the exceptional quality of its beer. That same great tradition has been recaptured in Walkerville Lager, a superior beer carefully crafted in small batches to assure freshness. Naturally-brewed without additives or preservatives - just premium hops, malt, yeast and pure water - Walkerville Lager embodies the full, rich flavour of a fine local tradition.

Bouteille de 341 ml achetée dans une LCBO de Ottawa. Dégustée le 23 août 2008. Bière ambrée limpide tirant sur le orange. Mousse assez, col moyen assez durable. Peu effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de sucre brûlé, de caramel. Très douce, assez sucrée, un peu amère en finale. Goût de caramel, de céréales. Très bonne, savoureuse et bien équilibrée, se boit bien.

I wasn’t expecting much from this Amber Lager, a style that can be hit and miss and in Canada, can generally be all over the map. This one pours a clear amber with little head. The aroma is caramel malt with some hops in the air. The flavour is malty with a hint of hops and plums. Unlike some other Amber lagers, this one doesn’t fill you up (ala Alexander Keith’s Red Amber Ale)

341ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger of creamy white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel and hops. Taste is caramel matly sweetness with a pleasing hop bitterness in the finish. Light to medium body and ample carbonation. This amber lager was definitely a pleasant surprise.

very strong flavour, bitter, very noticeable aroma compared to most domestics

Holey crap! This is one awsome brew! Poured a nice thick, solid white head similar to a Caffreys or Kilkenny on tap, nice light amber/orange colour, decent tiny bubble carbonation, floaties that never settle and a decent ammount of brown sediment blobs. Seeing that sediment dump into the glass came as quite the suprise. Produced a consistant solid ring of lacing thoughout the tasting. Aroma is sweet and malty. Something seems odd about the breadiness, so I read the other reviews and I gotta agree with Pootz that its "musty earthy bread dough". Nice hops as well. Taste is similar to the smell but is lighter on the breads and comes with a perfectly balanced bitterness. Flavours do not overcome the other qualities of the beer. Mouthfeel is almost medium bodied, extremely smooth with a better delivery than most beers and has a nice creamy soft light bitter finish. I need more of this. I got to say that I had my doubts about this beer, considering that I bought in Dauphin, Manitoba and it was a single (the only one in the store).Excellent beer.

A decent lager. Good hoppiness for a lager. A little citrus as well. Better than most lagers. Worth a try.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008
[1265-20080406] 341mL bottle. Yeasty alcohol and grains aroma with toasted malt. Clear, amber orange body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head. Yeasty grains flavour with watery plastic notes. Medium body is a little watery. Not bad, nice yeasty finish.

I was born drinking walkerville.. It’s a local beer where I live, so it’s fairly easy to come by at events. I had it on saturday at the Greek fest from a keg trailer. it came out a dark orange, with a medium tannish head. The aroma isn’t very strong, but there is a light smell of hops and malt. The taste is where it’s at, strong hops and a nice sweetness. I’ll buy it from now on, but it’s difficult to come by.

Bottle. Amber colour with sparse head. Aromas of mainly malt, yeast and a little fruit. Medium-light mouthfeel with corn and slight hop aftertaste. Nothing terribly different.

Pours an orangey amber with no head. Aroma is almost non existant, mostly just malty sweetness. Flavour is not bad, some graniness, malts, a tidbit of hops. It’s an OK beer, if nothing else, its atleast refreshing.
