Probably the better of the light beer alternatives.
Very light, very refreshing. Great summer patio beer, as long as the object is refreshment, over flavour and buzz.
At 3.5, it has more alcohol than Molson Canadian 67, but also much more flavour.
This is a "going to a barbecue, gonna take a couple of beers" beer, dependimg on the weight of the user..
3 of these = the alcohol in 2 standard beers. Its like "cheater beer". Less alcohol (3.5%)than most light beers(4%), but without the brutal pasty flavour of things like Bud Light, Coors Light, or things like that. More refreshing than those mass market lights.
This is not a food pairing beer, or a special occasion beer, but it makes a dandy daily beer.

Received a free can in a case of regular moosehead from a friend. The beer is bland, watery, and seriously light. Refreshing in the same way as a glass of water. This beer is good at quenching your thirst and not much more. There is some flavour to to beer and a slight taste of grain but overall water or nothing is the main taste that comes through. Not a terrible attempt but definitely not what i look for in a beer. Still a much better attempt at ultra light beer compared to Sleeman Clear or Molson 67. If you are looking for a light beer with solid taste skip out on Cracked Canoe and try Muskoka Detour or Amsterdamn 416 instead.

For what this beer is; being low in alcohol and calories; it has a surprisingly amount of good flavour. This must be due to the fact that the beer is slow-brewed. I would drink this beer over any other light beer as it has more flavour and you can casually drink a few of these and still be drinking something with some flavour.

Cracked Canoe is a premium light lager that has a crisp, clean finish. It's light color and taste make it easy to drink. I sometimes add a lime to it and love drinking it on the boat in the summer time.

Give it a try if you like light tasting beer / low cal.
