Ordered on tap in standard pint glass at Red Lobster restaurant. Brilliant red color with medium beige head. Nice round malt flavor with just enough roasted barley and hop bitterness to balance. Mild, bready aroma. Crisp, clean aftertaste. I find red lagers very refreshing, especially super-cold and paired with rich food like this. Recommended.

good red/amber color, small head, dispeared quickly. Aroma is a bready malt, with a touch of caramel. Flavour is grainy, and slightly malty. NOt a bad little lager, easily the best beer they had to offer, a decent brew.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2008 Had this beer on a threesome date during Lobsterfest at the North York Red Lobster location. This one pours copper amber, with very little head but had a nice malty aroma. Taste is malty as well, with a decent bitter finish. EDIT: Was brewed by Moosehead (Niagara Brewing Co.) at the time of the original rating; now the beer is being brewed and distributed by Labatt.

I was pretty surprized by this beer. Reddish brown in colour and very little head. Quite enjoyable to drink.

Golden amber, small creamy white head and decent lacing (3+) Very mute malt aroma. Icy cold serving temp didn’t help much but it didn’t change much as it warmed. Dry bitterness and muted malt make up the flavour. Mild caramel. Sort of a drier Rickard’s Red with less caramel? Bit grainy/malty. Average palate. Nondescript but mostly inoffensive. Mississauga location.

A surprise of how good this actually is. Thinking how good could a Red Lobster beer be??.......Has a redish brown (amber) coloured body...with hardly any head. Aromas of sweet malt and coffee. Malts present in the taste, sweet, and slightly yeasty. Made the horrifying Red lobster experience (I hate the smell and tast of seafood) rather enjoyable!....Thanks for sharing Mr.Manning

Holy cow, this is good. I ordered it at red lobster thinking the worst....and when the server brought it to me, I was suprised by the aroma and then by the taste. Aroma is almost coffeeish, malty, aromatically sweet. Good. taste is sweet maltyness, coffee flavours, bready, and some citrus??? Nice taste, went well with the burger I had, since I dont eat seafood. A suprisingly good beer, and id go there just to drink this@ thanks Jadoreblanche for buying this round!

The infamous Red Lobster Beer! This was rather delicious actually. A pleasant surprise. Amber colour... no head, clean taste, a tad sweet the lemon malt to it goes nicely with their dishes! Reminded me of Rickards but without the carbonation and the overmalt and skunk. A rare gem!
