En fût il y a longtemps. Rousse, la version Labatt de la Molson Rickard’s Red. Disponible dans plusieurs restaurants. Un peu insipide, céréales, un peu de houblon. Un classique dans le temps.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Originally rated February 2005. Poured an amber-red colour with a descent head. Aroma was very light with hints of fruits. The taste had a bit more presence, with malt, fruits and slight toffee all mixed together. Carbonation was heavy and mouthfeel was thin. This is Labatt’s answer to Molson’s Rickard’s Red. The two biggest Canadian macros attempt to red ales. I prefer Mick’s as it is at least refreshing, and Rickard’s gives me headaches.

Labatt’s version of Rickard’s Red. Too bad it doesn’t come close. Pours a deep amber with a small thin white head. Aroma of caramel and malt. Taste is malty with some caramel notes. If you have a choice, go Rickard’s for a macro.

on tap in Niagara Falls, Canada. Great red beer. Wish I could find it in the states. USA beer is gross.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
[405-20070707] Tap @ Le Bifteque (Toronto, ON). Yeasty grainy aroma has a hint of floral sweetness. Clear, bright red body with a medium-lasting bubbly white head. Grainy yeast flavour holds same hint of sweetness. Medium body is fairly smooth. Like Rickard’s only smoother and refreshing, best chilled.

Refreshing, I needed a good Canadian beer, and this one reminds me my previous visit. It is like a Brittish ale but with the Canadian peculiar flavour. I like it and good foam.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not bad, not bad at all. Red pint as the name declares. Once again, another one of those "drunk" beers. From tap of a local pool/bar. I wasn’t as focused on the flavour, but I was happy that it was going down easy. Tasted like barley and burnt hops. Beats drinking a macro.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Above average for this macrobrewery. Some pronounced bitterness and average malt character. Amberish with lasting white head. Not a bad drinkability, drying aftertaste.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Druaght. Not much in the way of smell: a bit of malt and breadiness. Same goes for the flavour, which is multilayered (citrus, bread, caramel malts), none of which melds together in a synergistic way, nor are any of them particularly "good." Better than some macros, but still with that factory-made taste we all know and hate.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber beer, thin off-white head. Aroma is decently malty, light caramel and a some herbal hop aroma. A bit industrial and grainy tasting. Still, it’s better than I expected... even still, it isn’t all that good.
