I love the color of this ale I could sit and look at it for hours in the glass but why waste time doing that when there is so much of it out there to drink ? To bad you can’t bye it by the case!

Oland's Red is a very clean, dry tasting red. It goes down very smooth with almost no aftertaste. great if you are going to have more than one or two.

Really nice deep ruby red color(like all the adjectives I used?). Goes down very easily with hardly any aftertaste. Very ’Crafty-Tasting’ ale.

it’s like this, most people like pepsi, but your not going to sit down and drink pepsi all night, good tasting beer, but you can’t drink it all night

This is a decent Maritime-Canada style ale. You’re not going to get dry hopped hop power, you’re not going to get 100% malt taste, but what you get is well balanced and a good quaff when chilled. This is what I order when I travel back to Halifax.

A real stand out for a Canadian beer. This is a perfect color and great taste. It is a little weak on the "bite" but maybe that is just me. After Schooner, the Red is my next Olands choice.

Tap at Dooly’s, Summerside, PEI. Nice red-amber colour with a small head. Earthy malt in the aroma and flavour. Flavour also has some roasty notes and caramel sweetness. Thin body. Finish is surprisingly well-hopped. Not quite up to the level of a good micro product, but still much better than I expected.
