BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Muskoka Brewery
Ontario, Canada
muskokabrewery.com

Style: American Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Like the region it's from, our all-malt Muskoka Craft Lager is a getaway from the average. That's because it's carefully aged and handcrafted to be uniquely flavourful, yet remarkably easy-drinking. Made from North American hops and malt, and winner of Canadian Lager of the Year, this delicately balanced thirst quencher is the refreshing departure you've been waiting for.

Purchased as a 473 mL can from the LCBO served chilled in a pint glass.

The colour is a light gold with moderate head that dissipates after about 5 minutes. Slight skunkiness on the nose. Underlying notes of cereal grain.

Taste is of bready grain and cereal with very mild hops.

Good mouthfeel with plenty of carbonation.

Overall a okay pour, easy drinking but a bit boring. I typically am a fan of lagers, but this one just misses the mark. Too many other better options out there.

Slightly hazy golden color with moderate pearly activity. Faint foamy white 2-3 finger head, lasting less than 5 minutes, with poor legs. Flavors of straw, caramel, sweet grainy malts, lemon, floral hops. Slick medium to full body with prickly carbonation. Medium strength leafy and floral bitter spices, with coarse barley, and sour apples. Lacks balance in the flavors. Got that wet straw feel that most adjuncts have, but the sweetness is a bit more bearable. Doesn't feel very fresh, the tongue coat is long and kinda harsh. You get an overly alcoholic feel too. Lots of character though, too much and the residual flavors are muffled by a brutal finish. Accessible to those whose likes hard adjuncts like malt liquors. Overall bad quality craft.

I bought a sample pack of the whilst in Hamilton for my son's hockey tournament. The beer poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is faint biscuit. The taste is nicely balanced and easy to drink. There was a nice bread base. The Mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid lager.

What a crappy lager to put in their above average variety pack. Really should be ashamed, especially that we were drinking keystone along with it and honestly we all (5 of us) liked the pissy pilsner cheap shit beer more! Very disappointed!

A great and less-hoppy (which I prefer in this case) alternative to something like a Sam Boston Lager.
