COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cirrhosis (1224) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Clean motor oil is the look of this beer, if you held a pint of this up against a pint of clean motor oil the only way you could tell the difference is by the big rocky beige head on it that goes away fast, except for a lingering skiff of bubbles formed by constant carbonation coming from the bottom of the glass. Lots of hops in the aroma, caramel, and banana good strong smell but not offensive, grapefruit and something that reminds me of peanuts mixed feet make up the rest of this deliciously complex smell. Wow this taste totally reminds me of a peanut butter banana sandwich, very clean hop presence but not so much it misses the style, amazing taste. Wow so malty, so good, the after taste is a creamy honey, and beer had a great medium body with good carbonation. For a lager this was amazing, very drinkable and refreshing, and for the relatively cheap price you get a awesome quality beer the you can chug back with out sacrificing quality or taste. Yukon is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries.

This beer is okay too! Very Light. Golden yelllow, lots of carbonation. The other beers from this company are more craft style.

JoeMcPhee (8575) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2004
Slightly hazy, pale golden colour with a creamy white head. Spicy and fruity aroma with strawberry and cherry being the most obvious. Good malt profile and fruity tasting. Medium bodied with a finish that is very crisp and clean. A big surprise since it claims to be competing with macro stuff, but it is clearly superior.

pootzboy (1597) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2005
Found this in the cooler at the Kensington wine Market in Calgary...no mention of it on Yukon’s web site though..it may be a contract brew?? Pours pale gold with a slightly hazey look and a small white rocky cap. Nose is interesting...fruity (like cider) and malty. smooth, fruity and slightly sweet malty, attenuated hops..with the biscuit malt pounding through in the finish and leaving a malty after taste...this is almost a copy of F&M’s retooled Stone Hammer pils....but slightly sweeter.

Pours clear light golden color. Nice hoppy fruity aroma. Decent flavor, nice palate. Very good lager, don’t know why it’s rated so low so far.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Pours a lightly colored gold with a small fizzy head. Clean nose, with some bready maltiness. Not bad, I am sure it tasted better because I was tired and hungry having had driven all the way from Anchorage to Whitehorse in one shot. Very crisp with some pleasant carbonation and a clean finish.

Lady_Bastet (113) - Burlington, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2010
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.

SHIG (3667) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - AUG 30, 2013
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.
