Moosehead Cracked Canoe. Premium Light Lager That's Big On Taste

( For many, enjoying an alcoholic beverage is part of celebrating the holidays whether that's beer, wine, spirits or fortified wines like sherry or brandy. Advice to moderate alcohol intake typically includes alternating alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, drinking less overall, or choosing alcohol-free, or alcohol-reduced, beverages. You can cut out a lot of calories by doing so without necessarily changing the behaviour of having your favourite bevie at the next open house or holiday dinner.

Moosehead Cracked Canoe Premium Lager Delivers

For a lot of people, myself included, impressions of light beer were, for the longest time, on par with decaffeinated coffee: a wet dish rag of a beverage. So lacking in flavour and body, I used to think, 'why bother?'. However, I always reserve the right to change my mind. Just like decaffeinated coffees which have come a long way, so too have light beers.

So much so that Moosehead's Cracked Canoe won the Gold Medal at this year's Canadian Brewing Awards in the light and calorie-reduced lager category. If you won't take my word for it, trust the judges; they know what they're talking about.

Cracked Canoe LagerOne small drawback was that it seemed to flatten a little more quickly than regular beers as it warmed, but for me, it wasn't much of an issue nor would it stop me from buying it in the future.

Moosehead Cracked Canoe is a premium lager that is low in alcohol, and therefore calories but is a great, light, refreshing beer with a smooth and full taste. With only 3.5% alcohol by volume, it has less than 100 calories per 355ml, saving you about 50 calories, making it a great option for anyone who wants to have their cake and eat it too so to speak. Hey, every little bit helps

Cracked Canoe comes in cans, 473ml and 355ml sizes, as well as, 341ml bottles and can be found across Ontario at select LCBO and Beer Stores. It makes a great addition to the holidays but obviously can be enjoyed any time of the year.
