Bottle. Colour - clear pale straw colour, huge white fluffy head. Aroma - corn, alcohol, wet cardboard, popcorn. Mouthfeel - watery, over carbinated. Flavour - grains, sweet malt notes, alcohol.

#12 Review by PaulCardom from Stittsville, Ontario, Canada
Score: 2.1 | Aroma 5 | Appearance 4 | Mouthfeel 4 | Flavor 4 | Overall 4 |
One of the telltale signs of a macro brewer is the inability to brew any beer greater than 5% without the alcohol becoming noticeable in the flavour. James Ready 5.5 is a perfect example of a beer that has such a pronounced alcohol presence in the aroma and flavour that only a 16 year old buys it on his prom night. Makes you wonder how these ‘accomplished’ brewers are unable to accomplish the simple task of brewing a 5.5% beer while every craft brewer on the planet thinks that 5.5% is ‘light’.

#11 Review by PaleAleRider from Winchester, Ontario, Canada
Score: 2.6 | Aroma 5 | Appearance 4 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 5 | Overall 6 |
Pours a pretty big bubbly head and has a straw coloured appearance. Has wheaty and grainy aromas, and unfortunately not much else. Very mild malty flavours and faint hops come through. Has that corn and grain type taste. Lively carbonation. Fairly light bodied. Drying mouthfeel with a slick sensation. Not too bad for a discount brand. Good and perfect for parties, with the 5.5%abv, won't hit home till much later. :)

#10 Review by Phil B from Gatineau, Canada
Score: 2.3 | Aroma 6 | Appearance 5 | Mouthfeel 4 | Flavor 4 | Overall 4 |
Bottle: Poured a super light yellow color lager with a large bubbly pure white head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma of light adjunct and residual sugar. Taste is bland though adjunct do not overtake too much from the taste. Body is quite light with good carbonation. Not bad for the style though not something I will seek out again – too bland for my taste.

#9 Review by cyrenaica from Milton, Ontario, Canada
Score: 1.9 | Aroma 4 | Appearance 4 | Mouthfeel 5 | Flavor 3 | Overall 3 |
473ml can
5.5% ABV
Milton LCBO Outlet #1 (Milton, Ontario, Canada)
March 24, 2010
The beer poured a translucent medium gold colour with a bubbly white head that quickly disappeared. The aroma was grainy malt, grass, and some stale hoppy tones. The mouthfeel was weak to medium bodied, with medium carbonation. The flavour was stale malt, some graininess, and a slight bitter finish.

#8 Review by lenusik from Montreal (Verdun), Canada
Score: 1.8 | Aroma 6 | Appearance 3 | Mouthfeel 3 | Flavor 3 | Overall 3 |
I'm not a fan of any of the James Ready line. Having tried them all in the past week, the beers taste as cheap as their price. The 5.5% is not all that great, and for a 5.5% Canadian beer, the alcohol doesn't seem to be there.

#7 Review by myke from T-dot, Canada
Score: 2.3 | Aroma 5 | Appearance 2 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 5 | Overall 5 |
One of two new flavours in the James Ready line, this honey beer is only different from the rest on the market in that it's an ale, where as the rest are lagers. Not much to say about this beer, other than it's a shave below average for this, the latest swill craze taking over Ontario. Still, it's better than Laker, Lakeport, et al, yet will not topple either Rickard's or Labatt's. Oddly, there is no aroma to this beer what-so-ever. There's no real head and I'm not bitg on the colour. I'll stick to original JR.

#6 Review by pootz from between Calgary and Waterloo, Canada
Score: 2.4 | Aroma 5 | Appearance 5 | Mouthfeel 5 | Flavor 4 | Overall 5 |
a sad commercial adjunct ale. Sickly sweet aroma pale yellow color, not much of a cap....sweet and funky like creamed corn with small hints of herbal hopping...fast finish, clean but totally uneventful and way too much carbonation...I was belching like a warf brigand on 2 sips of this stuff...if you were to chug a can you could compete in belching with those dorky kids on the Jackass show.

#4 Review by Chopz from Cantley, Canada
Score: 2.9 | Aroma 6 | Appearance 6 | Mouthfeel 5 | Flavor 6 | Overall 6 |
Bought a cheap 24-pack of this stuff at The Beer Store. Pours a straw yellow colour with a big frothy white head that has pretty good retention and decent smudgy lace. Lively carbonation with over-average sized bubbles. The nose is a good mix of hop, sweet malt and mild corn. Medium stickiness for the mouthfeel. Grainy malt start with a big corn finish. Some nice fruit comes out in the aftertaste. Originally tasted from the bottle, the fruit seemed like rhubarb. One of the better "Value Brands" at The Beer Store, but still, hard to drink to many of these in a row.
