1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2010 341ml Bottle
Basically A duplicate of RIckards Red. Again nothing special. A harsh bitterness that doesn’t quit and a serious lack of flavor. A disappointment.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Appearance wise looked promising. Aroma was undistinguished. Taste was sweetish, but not clear or crisp. One and not so well done.

It’s a good pour, good colour and goes down well with not too much of a harsh aftertaste. Overall, a truly enjoyable beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured from bottle into glass at home. Little to no head. Bland aroma, was fighting to get a whiff of anything distinguishable. Didn’t waste too much time on it. Boring taste, one of the blander amber ales I’ve had. Watery. Overall, it’s a mass produced flavourless amber ale. It is more expensive than the cheap stuff and it just isn’t worth it. I’d take a Cariboo or a PBR anyday over this stuff. However, I won’t complain if it was given to me, just like every beer!

J’adore la couleur de cette bière mais le gout et l’arome sont un peu faibles

tastes the same as regualr Keith’s. Esepcially when ice cold. Maybe warm it will taste better? But then you’d really taste the DMS (Creamed corn/asparagus)

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Had this beer up at a Ontario bar. I had recently had Rickards Red and decided to explore other Red’s in the area.
This one however disappointed me a bit. The smell was good, but it appeared a little weak. The head was minimal. The red amber color was more clear, and the whole beer felt very watery.
The taste was nothing remarkable. Not a bad red but certainly not as palatable as Rickards. The texture was quite thin and watery, and the beer seemed to have a light weight feel, not really thick. I wasnt asking for a milkshake but I expect my red to be a little heavier.
I personally didnt love this one, and opted to have just the one trial pint and leave it at that.
