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.

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.

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.
