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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a nonic pint. Colour is an orangey copper with slight head and some whispy lacing.

S - grainy, some rather dry orange pith, cornbread, some light citrus and floral aromas.

T - has a balanced start with grainy husky malts, then more cornbread character and some creaminess developing, gentle grapefruity citrus. Has a bit of a growing sharp bitterness, earthy and sharp. With a fairly crisp finish, some of the lactic character hanging on and then some lingering malt.

M - moderate body, decent creaminess to feel but also with an acidic bitterness. Carbonation is moderate for a sessionable ale.

Overall, its not a bad session ale but nothing I would say to be outstanding, the aroma is muted and the body is mostly grainy with a slight creaminess, thankfully not overbearing, and a bit of a sharpness, so it remains quite drinkable, approachable but not too interesting.

Served from a Can. Its my first cream ale so I did not know what to expect.

First thing I notice was a high carbonation, and a nice subtle crisp and hopy smell. (srry dont kow how to describe smells).

it has a nice light bronce colour. The flavor is much lighter that what I expected, but still you could feel easily the crisp malt tones and the greatly included hops.

Concluding I really enjoyed this beer, seriously drinkable and thirst quenching.

Purchased at the LCBO for $2.85 473ml can. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass

A- Pretty good. Opens well, pours dark amber with no head after 20sec

S- Pretty good. Very light. A bit of caramel and malt

T- Ok. Not very good. Ok cream ale with a touch of malt

M- Pretty good. Dry

O- Alright. Will not buy in a can or bottle but will try on tap if I see it

Food Pairing

This ok cream ale went well with... Pulled pork sandwiches- no BBQ sauce as that stuff is soooo gross

Enjoy

4.05/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Deep golden orange, verging on amber, light haze, almost no carbonation, two fingers of yellowish creamy head.

S: Apple candy, apple jam, light dried fruit quality like apricots, a little floral, big malty flavours, some dough.

T: Right on with the nose, apple butter, dried apricots, light fruitiness, a little floral. Tea like, not the same dough as on the nose, more of a light toasted quality. Ends with a little bitterness and dried apricot fruitiness.

M: Medium body, little carbonation, dry black tea like dryness.

O: Very appealing well balanced brew. Yes, it reminds me of cottage country, though I’ve never had a beer in cottage country though I grew up going to Muskoka in the summer. Delicious brew, fruity, dry, different from mainstream brews, full of flavor.
