James Ready 5.5

This offering comes from the James Ready Brewing Company of Brampton, Ontario and Saint John, New Brunswick.  I had a 473mL can of the stuff, which clocked in at 5.5% alcohol. J.R. 5.5 poured a golden straw colour topped with a thick layer of ivory head.  It has the standard pale lager aroma of grass 'n' grain.  The flavour balances the sweetness of freshly mown grass with a slight hop lift toward the end.  However, I'd like a bit more bitterness.
By no means remarkable, James Ready 5.5 is just what you'd expect from a macro-brewed domestic lager ... but with slightly more alcohol.
Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
