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 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

355ml bottle poured into a pint glass. ABV 5%.

A - Poured a clear copper-gold with a thin white head, head reduced to surface bubble, no lacing.

S - Mild caramel, hint of citrus, some spiciness. A bit mild but pleasant.

T - Mild sweetness, a hint of toffee, some spiciness with a bittter finish. Not overly hoppy but more bitter that I'd expect for a cream ale.

M - Medium-low carbonation, medium body, some creaminess, dry finish.

O - Decent ale.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Serving Type - 473ml can, poured into a nonic glass

Appearance - A pretty brew. Pours with a solid two fingers of head. Minimal lacing. The colour is darker than expected for the style - a golden copper hue.

Smell - Not a whole lot going on here. What is there is pretty sweet, with some grainy smells.

Taste - Wayy more hops than I expected from just the nose, makes for a (pleasantly) bitter finish. Tastes biscuity and grainy.

Mouthfeel - Extremely drinkable. Very low carbonation. This sort of goes without saying but...the mouthfeel is 'creamy'.

3.33/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - clear light copper and extremely bubbly to the point of being ridiculous, as such the head was huge and would not go anywhere
S - some grainy and adjunct aromas, mild leafiness, fairly basic here
T - grain and adjunct with a grassy and metallic hop flavour similar to saaz
M - started very carbonated but got flat as it fizzed itself out, somewhat thin and slightly dry
O - its close to average but has just enough flavour to keep it semi interesting, i might not buy a 6 pack of this but not problem having it included as part of a mixer, would also make a decent option on tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Pours a light amber with 1/4 finger width of bubbly head.

Smell- Sweet apples, corn, slight floral hops, caramalts.

Taste- Starts with sweet apples and corn followed by floral hops and caramalts. Very robust flavours.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation. Finishes dry and slightly bitter.

Overall- An easy drinking cream ale by Muskoka. I enjoyed the robust flavours in this brew. This is definitely better than most cream ales that I have sampled.
