122/2343) Home:  Paddle On Session Ale by Lake of Bays Brewing Co. of Ontario:  **; 4.5%, 40 ibu; brewed  "In partnership with Algonquin Outfitters"; usual four ingredients plus wheat, "pure lemon zest"; all natural, partially filtered; uses Perle, Chinook, Cascade hops; nose of lemon zest and grain; lemon zest features in flavours, overshadows hops mostly; not that strong a malt backdrop;  the lemon makes this summery, outdoorsy;  with those hops it may have been just as interesting without the lemon, mind any beer with lemon notes makes me think of fish and chips so I will let it slide;

123/2344) Home:  Midway ISA by Goose Island Beer Co. of Ontario:  *1/2; 4.6% India Session Ale; brewed with barley and wheat;  faintly tropical nose; mild tropical flavours;  feels a bit washed out; I can understand why Lake of Bays would add lemon zest to a session ale;

A pair of session ales.
