When did the term light get such a bum rap? Some­times light is just what you’re look­ing for. Not ev­ery beer needs to be a flavour bomb; too much of that fa­tigues the palate.


Goose Is­land End­less IPA LCBO 459503, 473 mL, $3.15 (5% ABV)

A bright nose of clemen­tine and fresh mar­jo­ram, a well-rounded malti­ness and a cleans­ing fin­ish keep you com­ing back for an­other sip.

In­nis & Gunn Ses­sion IPA LCBO 519058, 500 mL, $2.85 (4.6% ABV)

A fine ef­fer­ves­cence leads into fresh bright white grape­fruit and pine. Its sweet malti­ness makes for a soft mouth feel; how­ever, the Amer­i­can hop­ping keeps it sprightly, with a re­fresh­ing fin­ish.

Rail­way City Ex­press In­dia Ses­sion Lager LCBO 498402, 473 mL, $3.15 (4.8% ABV)

A bright cit­rusy nose of tan­ger­ine, le­mon pound cake and a touch of pine. Its lighter­style body is able to carry a lot of flavour while re­main­ing bal­anced and re­fresh­ing.

Muskoka Craft Lager LCBO 175810, 473 mL, $3.15 (4.8% ABV)

More mouth feel than your av­er­age lager, with a gen­tle of­fer­ing of gra­ham crack­ers and honey on the nose. It’s flavour­ful and malt-for­ward with an easy hand on the hops. Ses­sion­able in­deed!
