COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth real beer taste without aftertaste. It is fully fermented, lightly hopped and dry brewed, creating a lightly coloured beer with less body.

Really good cheap beer. I know that sounds contradictory but it’s easy drinking, low aftertaste, refreshing, and inexpensive.

Radek Kliber (6495) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 28, 2007
Can 355 ml
Clear pale gold lager with inch thick porous head. It did not last even full minute. Plenty of carbonation noticed. Very little lace left behind. 2-
Aroma: abusive plain sweetness. No to very little hop notes. Sugars, dusty cardboard.
Light bodied, front especially thin. Sugar sweet lager mainly in the middle. James Ready left little aftertaste, some malt and dry alcohol as “intriguing” factor. Poorly made even for obscure macro.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 8 x 355ml cans for $10.75. Great deal. One of the better "buck a beers" and my #1 selection of the discount brands. The pour is weak, its really hard to pour a good head with this beer, the aroma is of light malt and very fruity. The taste is very sweet and sugary, but not in an artificial way. If your not into sweet, tasteless beer i’d avoid it. Personally i don’t mind it.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 Bottle. A very good buck a beer. Nothing to complain about but nothing special. Good cheap beer.

I was very surprised with this beer. Not a bad smell and it tastes pretty good.

355 mL can from Lubiere, below cellar temp in a tulip glass. AP07/07

App.: Clear, light golden, foamy white head. Aroma: Corn and cereal, a hint of peppery, floral hops, light, vague fruitiness. Palate: Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Typical macro. Flav.: Sweet malt and cereal, barely a hint of hops.

Send James back to the minors, cause he ain’t Ready.

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2007
A pale blonde LAGER!! with a thick froathy white head. A rather sweet malt aroma, a bit soapy. In mouth, typical Moosehead, with sweet malt, light hopping, inoffensive, and a bit too sweet for my liking. Beerstore, 10.75$ for a 8-pack of cans.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 I didn’t expect much, so I wasn’t disappointed. very pale and colorless. typical macro lager taste, light-bodied with little to no hop character.

Diablo9845 (62) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2007 Golden colour with a medium creamy head. What little aroma there is smells of malt and mild citrus fruits. Nicely carbonated. Little to no flavour, nothing offensive but nothing of substance either.

Passable beer. What do you expect? It’s a 24 for 24. White head, not too bad a flavour for a beer of this calibre. Yeasty with hints of malt, and a decent amount of flavour. Aroma was a little fruity. Not as watery as most cheap beers. I would drink it again if I had to, but would probably never buy.
