DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 3, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2006 Nana & Grampa are home with the kids, and my wife and I are out for dinner and a movie. Hadn’t been to Moxie’s in about 10 years (as we both recall, we thought it was less then average). Pleasant surprise on 2 levels: the food was great, and they have 2 "special brews" that are exclusive to the restaurant chain, brewed by Big Rock here in Calgary. This was golden yellow, with a lacy head. Faintly fruity aroma, decent pale malts with a creamy mouthfeel. Best of all-- not served at -10 degrees, so you can actually appreciate that this was half-decent.

Tap. Clear yellow color, short head. Aroma of skunky hop, some grass, slight hop. Bit bitter taste. Below average.

Pint on tap at Moxie’s was a pale golden color with moderate white head and spots of lacing. Aromas of grain and grass. Taste is light malty sweetness and a cheap hoppy finish. An average lager, very similar to the macros with a slightly cleaner finish.

CapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2007
(Draught) Moxie’s on Yates Street, Victoria. You really cannot fault this beer for anything. Its plain but not offensive. Large frothy white head with a golden body. Nose is clean with a mild lactic odour. Milky and buttery flavour but seems pretty decent. Not bad.

Made by Big Rock eh? Maybe that’s why I thought the lemon on my buddie’s ice tea would look better on my glass of Grasshopper.

On tap at Moxies, Kingsway Mall, Edmonton. Served in a straight sided etched "Big Life" glass with a fill line. Gold colour, impressive head - white, creamy a good inch of foam in the glass. Left a lot of lacing. Slow rising carbonation bubbles. Some grainy notes to the aroma. Flavour was sweeter than I expected. Malty, a little fruity. Aftertaste had a bit of grain. Nlot too bad, and as Duffman stated, not served ice cold.

Metalchopz (3445) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2011
Tried on my first visit to Moxie’s, right before seeing Tron 3D at the theatre. Pours a clean golden colour with a small head and a bit of lacing. The scent is of sweet malt and this reflects on the taste, which is sweet with a grain flavour. This has a mild pilsner-like aftertaste with I like. Nice to see a smaller brewery making beer for a chain restaurant (instead of the big macros).

bulldogops (2726) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010
On tap at Moxies North Edmonton. 5%. Clear, golden yellow pour with a hefty white head with staying power. Aroma is inoffensive, mild hops. Taste is mildly hoppy, grassy, mild sweet malts. Clean mouthfeel, smooth finish. Plain jane European style lager/pilsner that delivers an inoffensive tasting offering. Nothing exciting here.

barncatmatt (2287) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2009
on tap at moxie’s in guelph on (stone road mall). clear yellow with minimal carbonation. small aroma of pale malt and light hopping. bacis all malt lager with a touch of bittering hops. not bad for a pale lager exclusively brewed for a chain of restaurants by a macro brewer. id have it again.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2008
On tap at Moxie’s Grill on Wellington Road in London, ON- Pale yellow and pours a tiny bubbled, frothy head, that is pretty short lived. Some lace on the frosty mug. The nose is of pale malts, grains, some lemon, slight grass. Tastes of somewhat sweet corn and grains. There is also a lemony contingent that I got about mid palate. Mild, crisp somewhat sweet finish with only a tiny bit of lingering bitterness. Not too bad. Food I had was good too.
