Moosehead is as Canadian as hockey and pronouncing Z as zed. It's surprisingly in the same price range as the usual suspects Kokanee and Bud and Canadian, but it offers such a nicer flavour that I am surprised it doesn't have a more solid following.

The beer pours your ordinary yellow lager colour with a moderate amount of carbonation and a good thick head that lasts longer than most macros. It smells a little skunky from the green bottle, but thankfully has a great grainy aroma to go along with it. It's not the heaviest tasting lager, and has a gentle body to it, but most importantly it lacks the unpleasant adjunct flavour that so many of the macros here carry with them, and the aftertaste is a delightful bitterness that is just weak enough not to make my face cringe.

I grab a case of this from time to time, partly cause I'm a good Canadian like that, but also because it's just a simple, refreshing, but well made beer. This is one of the Canadian beers to start with if you're going to try our beer for the first time.

DATE REVIEWED: July 19, 2014... GLASSWARE: Warsteiner pokal... OCCASION: family visiting day completed...APPEARANCE: lively, effervescent body of pale yellow straw; thick, two-finger foamy head that creates surprisingly beautiful white lacing; wonderful cirrus clouds ring the glass... AROMA: heavy dough and biscuit; hops are slightly aromatic;, but more corny than floral; enough tin to suggest a metallic base... PALATE: medium-bodied, refreshingly swift in the aftertaste; a bit grassy and slightly beefy... TASTE: beefy, meaty malts are strong and dominate the profile; subtler flowers include metallic water hose and, to a lesser extent, honey... OVERALL: a college indulgence--just as step above the Natty Lights of the world--becomes a decent Saturday night lager; requires some attention while sipping...

Type: bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a thin white head that disappears quickly. Clear golden color. The taste is slightly hoppy. The mouthfeel is good as well. This is far from the best beer in the world, but it's good after a long hot day. I would drink it again if offered.
