My gf hates beer but after 1 can of this her mind was changed, very drinkable, will not get you really drunk-see my profile for my motives, but for mixed company..the ladies seem to like it. To me is very similar to Rickards. only tried in a can

sawbuck (315) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2014
Aroma of sweet malt, with some off aromas. Deep red amber clor, with a tan head that hangs a while. Off sweet initial taste. Not right. Sweet malt, that is off, with peppery notes at the end. Finishes sweet, like diet soda. Watery finish. Could not finish.

(drain pour and ticksí night) pours clear golden, orange to red tint with a decent off-white head, little retention. some sugary caramel malts, faint cereals, hint of minerals, wet grass and bland herbal hops. almost aggressive carbonation, light body - watery. unimaginative but not horrid.

This one is quite bad. Even when living with friends in our late teens we disliked it. Cardboard aroma. Extreme chemical flavour. No head, but Iíd really like to know why itís red... if the government ever mandates ingredients on beer cans this brand will disappear overnight.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 14, 2012
355ml can pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that settles quite quickly leaving no lacing behind. Aroma is light caramel and faint hops. Taste is light caramel malt sweetness and undesirable hop bitterness. Slightly below average macro lager.

Metalchopz (2263) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2011
Originally rated October 2007. This one only comes in a 24 pack (if you want bottles). It is part of the dollar-a-beer brews. Pours a copper-red colour with a tanned head that leaves good lace all around. The nose is pretty decent at first, then kind of disappears. The mouthfeel has a nice wetness for refreshing purposes, but also sticks a bit too. The taste surprised me too, with some nice malts found in red beers, but then lands into the typical corn-based finish. Overall, was quite please with this one for the price and for a hot summer night.

6-packs of cans available at my local Beer Store. Was mildly interested in a cheap beer that might actually have some flavor to it. Unfortunately the flavor is highly artificial and sweet, and not very enjoyable. You can tell itís a cheap beer, and a guaranteed hangover. caramel and malt scent and flavored. looks actually not bad, a ruby amber color with a white foamy head. Nothing else worth mentioning.

355ml can. Well, itís better than any other Lakeport beer Iíve had, which is quite an honour of sorts. Colour is red with a large, almost pink head, and the flavour is basically brown-sugary soda water. Itís actually not as nauseating as you might fear it to be. But alas, it is still crap, but it gets you drunk, so you drink it because in the given situation you donít know any better. What a strange and uncomfortable scene.

garthicus (2662) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 3, 2008
Can-LCBO- Ruby red, huge off white head, not a bad looking beer at all. Musty-mown grass aroma, some artificial type scent coming through too. I think you needed to see my face for a true description of the taste--- have you ever gone to youtube and searched for kids eating lemons? Just foul, sour and sweet, carbonated, metallic finish, fookin hell, this is awful, only slightly better than lakeport ale,,,, shudder

Radek Kliber (6391) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 24, 2007
Can 355 ml
Appearance :Pours as clear darkened amber with hint of ruby red, medium large fizzy top (off tan). Fragmental lace.
Nose :Sweet mineral , caramel like aroma , light hint of generic bitters.
Flavor/Palate : Thin bodied , soft malty base with hint of caramel , soft grainy finish with industrial feel to it. Fizzy with out substance, very light. Shallow would describe this beer properly. Close your eyes and it will be hard to guess this brew is of dark tint. Artificial coloring? It is not horrible but middle of whole sale discount pack.
