Crisp and clean, pure and natural, Chilkoot Lager is everything you want in a lager. Light and effervescent, without that nasty chemical tang, Chilkoot Lager goes down smooth and easy.

Can, courtesy of SHIG – thanks! Dirty straw colored pour with a moderate haze and small white head which dissipates rather quickly. Smells rather sweet; lager malt, grass, corn syrup. The taste is… well… unexpected. A blend of sweet lager and grapes with a fizzy crispness resembles a chardonnay spritzer. It fades away into a sweet finish that sort lingers with the grape/chardonnay taste. Odd. Unfortunately I didn’t find this to be very refreshing, but for reasons I cannot explain that didn’t stop me from polishing off the can.

Can thanks to good friends moving to Alaska: Poured a clear golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sour grain. Taste is a nice grain and popcorn. Light wet finish.

Pours a clear light pale yellow with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of corn, pale malts and light hops. Taste is clean and crisp with corn, pale malts and a crisp bitterness on the finish. Very smooth easy drinking pale lager.

Bottle [341ml]. Pours a clear pale gold with a small diminishing frothy white head. Mild aroma of tropical fruit, caramel malt, honey and some breadiness. Nice, for the style, flavour of caramel malt, light spice, honey, tropical fruit and very light hops. Average to medium bodied. A decent Lager, it’s O.K. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles very quickly leaving virtually nothing for lacing. Aroma is cereal grain and herbal hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a lingering herbal hoppy bitterness. Easy drinking with a light body and good carbonation. Certainly not the best this brewery has to offer, just did nothing for me.

12oz bottle thanks to chswimmer. Pours a nice clear golden-yellow color with a lasting white head. Aroma is apple juice, white wine, and sweet malt. The flavor is on the sweeter side but not bad for the style. Sweet pale malt, appley acetaldehyde, and chardonnay on the finish. The palate is not very dry or clean. Medium-light bodied with average carbonation level. Not too impressive, but good for the style I guess.

Sampler at Yukon Brewering. Poured very pale yellow...not an attractive colour IMHO. Minimal head. Thin palate with a mild aroma of hops. Minimal carbonation. Notes of fruit and mild hops in the taste with a soft finish that had no taste at all...a bit of an oddity...wouldn’t have it again. If you do try something from this brewery, make sure it is the Ice Fog IPA or the Cranberry Wheat Heffeweizen.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2010 Bottle. 5%. 1st up in the Yukon Taster pack. Unimpressive pale yellow pour with a weak white foam that fades quickly. Aroma is corn, grasses, sweet malts. Taste is bland, corn and grains with a lingering sweetness into a smooth, and rather refreshing finish. Something here is appealing... All in all, a light crisp lager.
