Notes/Commercial Description:
First brewed in1996, our flagship Muskoka Cream Ale has since become a signature beer of the Muskoka region. Unmistakable with its rich amber colour and inviting floral tones, this laid-back English pub-style ale is smooth and easy-going. With a Cascade hoppiness and fuller body of flavour, this gold-medal winning Canadian Cream Ale is the quintessential taste of cottage country. Raise a glass.

Can from the Beer Store, 473ml into a pint glass. Best before Aug 1, 2011.

Pours copper, with a fluffy and soapy offwhite head that quickly settles to a thin collar, thin film and some medium sized bubbles. Nose has a bit of toasty malts, bready with grain notes, light caramel which contributes to a greater general sweetness and some moderate hop notes. Taste kicks off with some sweet caramel right with some bready qualities, which thin out into some grain notes and a mild bitterness. Some mild metallic flavours which fade while the pint warms. Light-medium mouthfeel and easily drinkable. A fairly solid cream ale, and certainly a cottage option.

Revisited July 17, 2011 - can from the LCBO after the Muskoka's rebranding. Best before December 1, 2011. Cool can!

More citrus notes along with the aforementioned breadiness through and through with this beer. Incredibly drinkable, medium light weight on the palate. This has got to be a new recipie, outstanding for a cream ale. Top tier within the cream ale style category.

Poured from the bottle into an American pub glass. A dark gold brew, just grading into light bronze territory, with around two fingers of resilient beige head. Aroma was unexpected and compelling, mainly tangy English hops (!?) propped up by doughy sweet malts, accompanied by some fruity yeast esters that recall pears and light citrus rind. Taste is correspondingly fruity and reasonably sweet, with a blood-like metallic tang. This brewery yields some nice caramel malt flavors and these shine through here, along with nutty baker's yeast, unripe peach, grape candy, pear, citrus rind, and toffee brittle. The sweet malt flavors develop nicely as the beer warms up. Light bodied and creamy as the style designator would suggest, with a semi-wet finish that features more earthy/spicy hops and hints of toast. Robust flavors for a cream ale and starts to blur the boundary between this style and an amber ale. I like my session options less sweet than this but recommended nonetheless.
