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.
