Garrison Brewing - Imperial I.P.A.
 
Pours a dark amber color with a thick white head.
Aroma is all citrus with a hint of conifers.
Thick almost chewy taste to start. Very rich and creamy.
Lots of citrus and some berry in the background but mostly the hops. Very nice brew. I could handle a few more of these!

Cracked Canoe Premium Light Lager

It is quite an elegant label they have, quite simple black with white lettering. It is obvious that they are going after a premium crowd. Too bad they aren't doing it with a good beer.

The beer pours a very pale yellow colour with a decent but coarse and short lived white head.
The aroma is almost non-existent. A faint corn like aroma and that is about it.
The feel is at least moderately creamy and sparkling with lot's of carbonation. Not watery anyway.
Taste is nothing.
A very faint malt and corn taste. Virtually no hop tastes. Only slightly more here than in carbonated water. It is absolutely non-offensive because there is almost nothing to it.

You could drink it anytime but why bother. Have a glass of sparkling water instead.

Their label says "Take your time to enjoy it, after all, we take our time to make it". I have to wonder what they did with all that time, they certainly didn't spend it making a good beer.
Once again it is a beer for the marketing department. It's a shame.



Gotta agree with you. Never really thought about the marketing department. I think I need to think about this for a while. Maybe I am starting to understand "Mainstream" beers a bit more.

I believe your taste buds are too sophisticated for a simple light beer. I enjoy many different beers. This one is a nice light beer. It has more to it than you want. Maybe you should stick to your fav. And not bother to experiment.

Cracked Canoe Premium Light Lager

I bought this stuff because a friend said it was wonderful. In fact he said he was changing from his long time favorite beer. I should have asked what his favorite was. Turned out it was Coors light.

Anyway, it looks like Ginger Ale only paler.
I couldn't smell anything at all.

The taste just wasn't there. Nothing at all.
They sell this junk at a premium price but there is NO flavour at all. I can't imagine why anybody would buy this even if they have never tried a craft beer. It pisses me off.

It pours like beer. It looks Like beer. It tastes like S _ _ _!
Water would be a better choice. No flavor, it's thin and watery. Has nothing going for it. A big waste of money.

Beer Quote of the day

I'm just worried that there's enough beer on the bus. That's the top
priority at all times.
