I used to pick this one up from time to time back in the day, and was growing nostalgic. I shouldn't have. Or else, I got a bad batch, because of the green bottles that had probably been in a warehouse for months. From now on, barring the unlikelihood that I find it in cans, I'll skip it. Not awful, but not worth twice what I normally pay for beer.

First beer i ever tried at age twelve. Trying it again decades later all I can focus on is the skunky taste. It reminds me of Heineken, which is notorious for its skunky flavor.

I used to slug these down and it's a pretty good American style macro with some pretensions as to being "small brewery" stuff. A solid choice.

I'll admit, I'm going to be a little bit bias towards this review, but I'll try to be as neutral as can be.

I feel like here, in southern Ontario, Moosehead is a little bit underrated/forgotten about.

L: It's definitely that typical blonde lager we all know about.
S: Has that relatively familiar grainy/corny type scent in lagers also.
T: Has more bite and overall flavor than what its meant to compete against, which is great.
F: Not easy to shotgun at a Canadian college party as other beers, but it's still very refreshing on a warm day, which is where it shines

Overall: I certainly think it's much better than its competitors in every aspect, plus the whole story behind the brewery is worth reading. Definitely worth a try, if you put away your self-proclaimed "refined tastes".
