473ml can, not sure if this is still brewed at Muskoka, one (big) province over, as the label purports to having grown their own barley and hops.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves very little in the way of persistent lace near the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of semi-sweet grainy, bready pale malt, a touch of, I'm sorry to say, gritty corn husk astringency, hard to dismiss acetone and diacetyl (what is this, Chem 101?), and very weak earthy, leafy hops. The taste is more bready, grainy pale malt, a bit of yeasty caramel, buttered white bread, a thankfully fading nail polish remover unpleasantness, ethereal overripe citrus flesh, and a plain weedy, herbal hop bitterness.

The bubbles are fairly easygoing in their genial and nonthreatening frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, but more than a tad clammy and pithy in its stillborn smoothness. It finishes sweet, and kind of off-putting, that now rancid buttery essence expanding to fill the void of the other receding flavours.

Gah - simply calling this a macro-lager wannabe does a minor disservice to the Molson Canadians of the world - this has much more in common with malt liquors and Minhas, unfortunately. There are numerous flaws here that need to be fixed before I'll take the 'Premium' descriptor on the label even the least bit seriously, whoever is brewing it.

At present, contract-brewed by Muskoka (despite all the "estate," "home grown," etc., rhetoric on the bottle). And maybe the most mediocre beer to come out of Muskoka, if that's the case: the world doesn't really need a "craft" attempt at an American macro lager, but here it is.

It's just Samuel Adams cherry wheat except without the cherry

My girlfriend brought this one back from Winnipeg. From notes.

A - Light golden pour. Bright. Strong carbonation. One finger white head. No lace, no retention.

S - Lemony, herbal hop. Crackery malt. Floral. A little mango. Nice aroma for the style.

T - Lemony and herbal again. Bubblegum character. Pears.

M - Good carbonation. Light to medium body. Herbal, skunky sorta finish.

O/D - Not a terrible lager. Flavour does enough to avoid being plain. Could have a few, but it doesn't really hold your attention. Good enough though, and definitely a good gateway beer for the mainstream.
