JR 5.5 was the staple of my university beer-drinking experience. Beyond the taste itself, we loved the campaign the company ran - from blank caps, to calendars, this is a brand that even if I didn’t like the taste, I would drink just for the fun the brand provides.

A light beer in color and taste. Truly the only memorable thing is that it's one of canada's cheaper beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

asheft (2700) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2011
[bottle] Not unpleasant aroma of hay and green apples. Crystal clear straw appearance with a quickly dropping white fuzz on top. Not quite offensive yellow megaswill: faint hay and grain with detectable hops flavour, slight DMS, and some powdered sugar. The flavour is so weak that the 5.5% alcohol really comes though. Medium carbonation, light body, not quite crisp finish.

Well... it tastes better than moosehead at least, not overly foul. Smell is a bit off and taste doesn’t leave anything to be desired. Piss yellow colour.
