473ml can served cold into a pint glass. Picked this up on a whim, and probably the first time I've seen it in singles in forever. Initial rating back in 2013, finally reviewed this in October of 2017.

Appearance - super pale, near clear color. Very light golden aspect. A half finger of head is poured and dismisses to nothing inside a minute.

Smell - not much, some light grainy notes and a thin vegetative note. Nothing really off.

Taste - very thin very mild, next to no flavor, with a very very gentle grainy note at the end. Again nothing off.

Mouthfeel - thin bodied, light carbonation is appropriate.

Overall - a decent light lager with no off notes. I guess if that's your cup (of beer) then give it a shot. For most BA's, they won't even look towards a beer like this,

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.

Cracked Canoe is a 3.5% ABV refreshing beverage with all of the taste of a 5% lager, but only 90 calories and less of the alcohol content. I enjoyed the CC I had at lunch the other day, because I was able to come back to work clear headed. I think the packaging is very tasteful, and the beer was easy to drink, and had the full flavour I like in a lager beer.

473ml can poured into a pint glass. ABV 3.5%.

A - Poured a very pale yellow with a 2cm white head. Head slowly reduce to a thin cap. Some lacing.

S - Very light bread aroma and not much else.

T - Water, very light taste of grains and light hint grass.

M - Watery, light carbonation, clean dry finish.

O - Light beer in every way. Easy to drink only because of it's inoffensive blandness.
