473 mL can. Pours golden yellow. Partially filtered cloudy colour. White head with good retention. Hoppy and crisp. Full finish. Would recommend.

Have been drinking Naughty for a while, when I was living in Toronto. The first thing that is striking is the great orange can. The orange and subtly clouded color of the beer when poured into a glass (the best way to enjoy it) make you want to dive right in. I have always tasted a little cinnamon and licorice at the end of the sip, which I really like. It has a perfect balance of carbonation and flavour. Great all year round, as it is refreshing when ice cold, and warming during a cold winter night.

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

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

Picked up Naughty Otter at the LCBO in Liberty Village. The first thing that caught me was the bright orange can and playful designs, looks great on shelf. Decided to give it a shot. Aroma is great and the actual beer looks good! I don’t usually enjoy lagers but I found this beer very refreshing. Only complaint is after-taste is slightly bitter but overall this lager is great and I will be buying it again!

Really enjoyed this. Didn’t know what to make of packaging. Fun I guess, though a little weird for my sense of humor. But beer was quite drinkable and crisp.

Tried this and the wheat - hard to choose between! This one definitely goes down easy. Could drink a few of these. Maybe I’m biased because I love otters!!

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.

Tall can, lcbo. Clear pour, subtle hops, crisp finish with grassy notes, slight bready malt. Pleasantly surprised considering it’s another craft lager. Actually flavourful - well done

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
