2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
341ml bottle, 5.5% a/v
Average yellow color with a small white head. Grainy and yeasty aroma like a rising bread before baking. Malty sweet with a slight hop aftertaste. Almost tastes like hard liquor when you take a big sip, but only briefly. Not a bad wobbly pop, good as far as the value beers go.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
a bready aroma, a little overly sweet for me, but one of the better ’value’ beers out there and the extra .5 ABV is a bonus

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle- Pours yellow sparkling body. Fizzy white cap, with lots of tight, tiny bubbles, receeding to nil. Little lace. A pronounced stale hop aroma amongst corn and some fruit are present. Slightly hoppy flavour, with again, stale corniness, and a distinct macro finish. It is actually kinda dry. Not really my gig.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Yellow bodied brew, sweet malty aroma with a touch of fruit character. Mild flavour with a sweet malty bass, very mild bitterness. Touch of ingering fruit in the aftertaste. Average palate. Nothing special but surprisingly drinkable, reminds me a bit of Moosehead now that I think about it.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Golden, fizzy, with white head. Very uninteresting, alright ice cold in the sun but thats about it. Not worth drinking again. Unless it’s free, like the one I rated....haha

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
When I was 9 or 10 years old, I decided one day that I was going to have a beer, just like my much older relatives. So I opened a bottle from my fridge, then walked over to my Grandmother’s house next door where a bunch of my relatives were. My first beer was then promptly taken away from me. And that beer, if I recall correctly, was a James Ready. So when I saw there was to be a new incarnation, of course I had to rate it. 341 ml bottle. Pale yellow colour with a fizzy, oddly large bubbled white head. Wet straw and slight fusel aroma. Light toasty flavour with a metallic finish. Light bodied, airy but prickly mouthfeel. Much like that day many years ago, I should have left this one in the fridge.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2006 Thanks for the bottle pintbypint. Light gold body with a very thin head. The aroma is relatively rich corn and flowers. The taste is slightly sweet corn and some carrots. A decent golden.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden yellow large pillowy head. There is nothing redeaming or special about it. It is a common flavour mass produced beer.... Sweet

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
341ml brown bottle. Poured a very light straw colour. Head is composed of large soapy bubbles, slightly clingy lace. Collapses rather quickly. Slightly floral aroma, touches of fruit. Light body, tingly cabonation. Flavour combines light fruit notes, floral/orange hop taste. Disapointing weak finish, watery and dryish. Pretty straightforward macro Canadian ale.
