a really good value buck a beer because of the extra 0.5%, tastes watery and a bit sour, but not unpleasant and at least tastes more substantial than mooseheads other beer AaronBouchard (150) - Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2008
This is one of the finest bang for your buck beers out there. Very commercial taste but I found it has a slight little zing to be offered. Can only find it at one place in the city at the old moosehead brewery store here in Dartmouth where it isent as cheep as it used to be. robinvboyer (4740) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2008
this was awful. There is a cooked vegetal/corny aroma and flavour that is just bad. NOrmally you would expect that in these budget crap lagers, but in this one it’s there, and its nastier than usual. And i could actuall tatse the alcohol, in a 5.5% beer, that should not happen. Just a brutal beer. JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2008
Considering it’s just a low-end buck-a-beer for the budgeted student, this is actually a surprisingly decent beer. Yeah, it’s corny and probably filled with adjuncts, but it still seems to taste better than most other crappy budget beers out there. grasshopper19 (6) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2007 does not count
I used to drink a case of this now and then when it was available in Nova Scotia. It was pretty good for what it was. Decent body and has some nice flavor with a little extra kick at 5.5%. Would buy it again but I never see it in Halifax anymore. Also has some goofy little sayings under the bottle caps.

Bottle. My Dad is now a James Ready Light drinker instead of a Coors light drinker, but he bought a case of this y mistake - so, another rating for me! Light yellow (but slightly darker than the light), little head. Aroma of harsh grain and a hint of alcohol (really). Taste - I was really surprised how pronounced the alcohol was - when the body is this thin, 5.5 stands out - I would have given it 6-7% - so while it adds a little more flavour than the light, it adds a harshness that ain’t good - the light is inoffensive, this is more interesting but certainly more offensive.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2008 A very plain lager, about equal to macros like Molson and Labatt... but it’s buck a beer and 5.5! Pretty impressive for what it is I’d say, though it’s not much. Then again, you can easily get tired of this stuff. froshmasta (3) - CANADA - MAY 31, 2007 does not count
Really good cheap beer. I know that sounds contradictory but it’s easy drinking, low aftertaste, refreshing, and inexpensive. Radek Kliber (7470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 28, 2007

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.
