This is a rock solid alternative to macro lagers. Proudly independent for as long as Canada has been a nation, Moosehead deserves a pat on the back and a Wiser's slow clap for sticking with a winning formula. This beer reminds me of Henry Weinhard's Blue Boar Ale and brings back great memories. In short, it's a nicely hopped lager that smells like a canoe cooler on a hot day. It's easy to down several of these in hurry - be forewarned!

I always liked Moosehead, although I haven't had one in years. Nice body, flavor balance, and finish make this a solid and easy to drink beer. Kind of sweetish finish. Clean, easy to like. Very respectable, but there are other brews more interesting these days. Definitely born of the 80's.

Moosehead. One of the oldest independent breweries in the world.
The look of head is pretty simple. Yellow golden color. Lots of carbonation in the glass. About 1 finger of head that leaves after you drink half of the glass.
The smell is pretty sweet. You have that Lager typical smell.
About the taste. Everything was going pretty good until the taste. I find it a bit over carbonated. You have plenty of bubble going on tongue with that watery sensation.
After you swallowed it you have that stronger after taste that doesn t match up with the beginning. Im sad that it is an American Pale Lager. I wish it could be more as an European Ale Lager. It would way more enjoyable.
So overall would I recommend it ? No, there is not enough for me to recommend it. It is not a easy drinking beer. A bit disappointed. There is something that this beer is missing. Even the Grolsch Premium Lager is much better than this one.
