355 mL can, the lone straggler from a mixed 12-pack picked up at TBS a while back. Meant to do this one sooner, but I honestly forgot I'd even bought it. Dated Mar 4 2016 and served well-chilled.

Pours a clear pale golden colour, topped off with one finger of fizzy white head that sizzles itself out of existence with gusto, leaving the surface totally bare. No lacing or collar; looks like ginger ale, basically, except not as effervescent. Like the root beer version, this is pretty much impossible to distinguish from the real thing using sight and smell alone. This one's aroma is like a cross between syrupy-sweet store brand ginger ale, candied ginger root and Vernors, with its trademark peppery, spicy ginger bite.

Not great, but I suppose it could be worse. Generally sweet, sugary and syrupy flavour profile, with the ginger being more of a background presence. No sign of the alcohol at all. Tastes like that Wal-Mart brand ginger ale. The mouthfeel is where it starts to lose me - reasonably fizzy and crisp, but with light-medium body that leaves a slick, filmy texture behind on the palate with each sip. Other than that, it's as drinkable as any fountain soda.

Final Grade: 3.05, a forgettable C+. Mad Jack Ginger Flavoured Lager is about what you'd expect from a macro ginger beer - uninspired, too sweet, lacking in ginger flavour, but still not very challenging to knock back at all. I wouldn't go so far as to call this an off-putting product, but it's safe to say that I won't be returning to it regularly. I think I prefer the root beer one over this, but they're both better than the original apple one.

355ml can - part of a mixed pack of attempts by Molson/Coors to jump on the flavoured beer bandwagon, this time around.

This beer pours a clear, very pale golden straw, um, 'colour', with three fingers of puffy, and mostly just fizzy bone-white head, which blows off before my eyes, leaving nothing in the way of lace anywhere near the glass.

It smells of somewhat zingy and earthy ginger root, muted malted corn, some understated flinty stoniness, and very little else. The taste is sugary Schweppes or Canada Dry-esque ginger 'ale', some further pale and corn-fed malt sweetness, and once again, nothing else to really mention, and damned, did I look!

The carbonation is quite active in its soda-friendly fizzy and frothy twin natures, the body a surprisingly decent medium weight, and of course, corporate committee smooth, no ginger edginess messing about here, nosir-fucking-ree! It finishes well off-dry, in a way that, I must admit, surpasses yer typical grocery store pop's limited capabilities in the manner.

Overall, this is just another plain, and subservient example of the fear and loathing apparent at the big boys of the brewing industry these days - I'm guessing that nobody really asked for this (unlike its root beer sibling), and none of us really want anymore of it - can those metrics just make this one go poof in the unforgiving night, or something?

Mad Jack Canada Dry , sorry I mean Mad Jack Ginger Flavoured Lager

Look: Yellow golden color, No head, medium carbonation.

Smell: Sweet Ginger, some corn also on the behind. Smell like a Canada dry

Taste: Same as the smell. Sweet ginger with a mix of corn on the background. The finish is dry. Medium carbonation. Goes down really easily. Very refreshing. Not too sweet. Very plaisant.
It does taste like a Smirnoff Ice !

Feels: Refreshing. Nice summer beer. This is a good combination of a lager and the ginger. Very different from the Hard Root Beer.

Overall would I recommend it ? Yes, try one if you can. Nice summer beer. I definitely enjoy it more than the Hard Root Beer.
