COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Naughty Otter Lager is fun, refreshing, crisp -- our premium lager for any time of the year. Made with organic barley from the US Midwest and organic German hops, Naughty Otter is about relaxing, forgetting the stress of work, recovering from cutting the grass or just unwinding. This beer is partially filtered so it has a craft beer look and feel, it has an IBU of 24 which means it is hoppier than most domestic beers. 178 Calories per 12 oz serving.

Had this again recently and was better than I remembered. Not sure if it was a brewing change but this came out remarkably crisp and tasty. Well balanced, hop presence is gentle. Goes down refreshing.

Superior Craft Lager, would definitely purchase again! As a consumer, it is important to know the type of beer you are buying, Gananoque hits the nail on the head with a crisp easy drinking lager. Naughty Otter is not hop heavy or bold, it is a great craft beer that you can drink (a lot of) all the time. Golden colour with citrus notes, very mild hop finish (which is my preference, too many crafts are loaded with far too much hops), clever marketing and actually have quite a nice facility if you ever find yourself in Gananoque or passing through

Enjoyed this as much as I hoped I would. Well balanced, gentle nutty notes on the malt, hop presence is modest. Medium body, very drinkable. Perhaps a little on the strong side for a lager but overall was impressed.

Very flavourful yet easy-drinking lager. Fruity undertones are subtle, yet sufficient resulting in a refreshing full bodied lager. Its a delicate balance making a fruity full flavoured beer refreshing, but this one works well.

Enjoyed at the brewery in Gananoque on draught. Light, orange colour. Slightly cloudy, with a pleasant scent. Smooth flavour, finishes with an enjoyable mild bitterness. Average carbonation.

Picked it up because the can looks pretty cool, after talking with the LCBO rep, they told me the beer is meant for craft drinkers but not total "hop heads" - safe to say i thought the beer delivered on that goal A - medium gold with a reasonable head S - Citrus notes T - Moderate hop taste/finish with citrus/grassy notes. Refreshing and crisp. Very easy drinking, I found. Overall - easy to drink with a more complex flavor profile than your run of the mill beers, I will pick this up again at the LCBO or Beer Store

Excellent easy drinking beer. Great for a summers day and full of flavour. Very simple and tasty enough to keep it memorable.

Really lied this beer. Pours amber colour with hefty white head that sticks around and tastes great. Carbonation is average but it suits the beer. It has almost oily heavy texture that is very pleasant. Clear aroma of yeast and malt, with hoppy touches. Flavor of malt and yeast, with mild, bitter notes of hops. Really pleasant and not overwhelming after taste.
