Made with premium ingredients that include sugar, kola nut, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and even a dash of maple syrup, Canadian Cola is an enjoyable tasting cola. The product has clearly been formulated with the mainstream drinker in mind, delivering a sweet body that’s about on par with the level of sweetness you’d find in a Coke or Pepsi. While it’s hard to taste the individual spices or the maple syrup, they combine to give the product a slight note of spice on the finish. The use of maple syrup is more likely a marketing ploy than a real ingredient, but it seems like a great tie back to the Canadian theme. On the outside, we’re not quite sure how we feel about the name “Beaver Soda,” but it certainly doesn’t have the same charm that Beaver Buzz (their line of energy drinks) did. Otherwise, the design of the can is clean and easy to read, with a retro style black and white photo on the bottom portion of the can. Really, our only suggestion is to balance the emphasis on the various elements. In the current design, our eye goes to the logo, the photo, and finally to the flavor. Overall, this is an enjoyable product that’s the best of the lineup.
