COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to the original Carling Red Cap recipe, this true light tasting Canadian style ale has the same smooth sparkling taste that made this nostalgic brand so famous in the fifties and sixties.

Strangebrewer (875) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2014
bottle. Poured clear pale amber with a quick diminishing head. Aroma is sweet and grainy. Light body with a crisp carbonated mouthfeel, tart dry finish. Flavour of light bready malts.

reebtogi (4237) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that settles quickly leaving little lacing behind. Aroma is light grains and faint hops. Taste is light malty sweetness and mild hop bitterness. Light body and moderate carbonation. Tastes more like a standard macro lager than an ale.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
341ml Bottle from the Beer Store. pours pale yellow with a white head. aroma of corn, cardboard and minimal malt and hops. Pretty much just another macro.

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 30, 2012
341ml bottle. Very little aroma, some light malt. At least it is not bad smelling. Pours light gold with thin, tight head and lots of bubbles on the sides. They do not last. Taste is not bad for cheap beer, light malt and toast. Palate is not too thin, but went flat pretty quick. Overall, one of the better Ontario buck-a-beers, but that isn’t a real fierce field.

Spab (2452) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2011
341 ml bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a clear, pale golden yellow with thin white head. Aroma of grainy malt and a little fruitiness. Flavour is grains, light apple and a touch of grassiness. Lightish bitterness in finish. Body is on the light side. Ok at best.

Metalchopz (2316) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2011
Originally rated June 2006. Ah yeah... the stubby bottle ! Pours a golden-yellow colour with a medium white head that dissipates quite quickly, leaving minimal lace. Heavy carbonation of average-size bubbles. The nose is dominant of sweet malt and slowly going toward a grainy malt. Smooth with slight fizz mouthfeel. Starts off with some mild sweet malt, then goes through this hoppy light bitterness to then end with a grainy finish. Hints of apples and pears. Definitely more punch then a lager, and quite a decent smooth ale I enjoy every time at the Dominion Bar in Ottawa.

Same bottle as pictured. Poured light golden yellow with small head. Very light. Not much to it at all. No hops in the flavour or aroma. Kind of taste the alcohol in it. Overall decent offering.

Ontbeertaster (2338) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2011
For the price this one is good. It pours golden. it has a taste of sweet cherrys. it doesnt have much hop flavour to speak of. but the malts make for a flavourful beer. I would have this one again

milewide (1535) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2011
From many pleasant memories of Carling Red Cap Ale. This seems to be the current offering: "Brewed to the original Carling Red Cap recipe..." This was my first "craft ale" with more hops and body than micro brew competitors! Sure wouldn’t drink it today!

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2011 this beer honestly smelt like vomit. the taste was not much different, if i hadnt already had a few i would not have made it through this beer.
