canoe beerI discovered this beer last week while making my monthly shopping for beer I haven’t tried before, and the main reason why I bought it was because it came with a free umbrella. Yeah. An Umbrella.

Moosehead Cracked Canoe Beer is a “premium” beer, meaning it’s expensive, although I didn’t think it was too much so.

My review: it’s OK. A light lager that hits the spot on a hot day.

I found a YouTube review of it, which appears to be shot in a bathroom:

Moosehead is a well known company in Atlantic Canada, famous for their beer of the same name.

(I’m not linking to the Moosehead corporate website because it’s all annoying Flash.)


  1. Since a trip to the UK back in 1991, I’ve learned to appreciate ales.
    At a recent birthday party my wife gave for me, a friend brought a variety of beer, knowing my appreciation for certain beverages. Among these were four bottles of Duchy Originals Organic Ale. This stuff made me stop and sip. It took me an hour to get through a bottle because I didn’t want it to end. Three months later I still have one in the fridge waiting for a special occasion. I don’t think I’ve ever felt that way about a beer before.
    After some investigation, I discovered that it came from an organic farm owned by Prince Charles. Apparently, everything grown on this big farm is grown organically. The difference to these taste buds is noticeable.

  2. Duchy Orginals Organic Ale appears to have favorable reviews around the net. I’ll keep an eye out for it.

    I’m not a beer connoisseur- I just know what I like. Your experience is envious though. Phillip and I had a similar experience with our first dram of Lagavulin.

    Thanks for the comment!
