3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I heard a year or two back that Trafalgar lost the contract to brew this, so maybe it’s being made by someone else now, but it’s still available at all Red Lobsters in Ontario as far as I know. It’s also a surprisingly good beer - nice copper colour, a small & persistant head, good malty aroma, and a clean, well-balanced flavour with notes of caramel and vanilla.

I thought this was made by Red Lobster. Pours deep amber/red, with aroma of malt, cognac, and toffee. Tastes very complex, with a malty finish. It went very well with seafood, and the name fits the theme.

Tap: I had this at Red Lobster a few times and it was rather nice and malty. I was sad to hear they aren't carrying it at my local RL anymore.

Ordered this on a whim at Red Lobster. Didn't know what to expect coming from a large chain serving mediocre food. Pleasantly surprised to find that there namesake beer was excellent! A nice sweetness not unlike Rickards Red but much lighter. Good frothy head lasted nearly to the end. Complimented my tilapia well but couldn't really pick up on subtle flavours. Very easy drinking and satisfying beer.

Malty, fruit aroma, copper, with small vanilla custard head. Pleasant malt taste, ample bitterness, caramel and a hint of butterscotch too. Nice mouth feel, well balanced. A good beer for the Red Lobster Chain!

this beer was served to me utterly freezing in a frosted glass so it took a good ten minutes before I really smelled or tasted anything. nice amber colour, white head. malty, slightly citrusy aroma. sweet clean malt flavours with some hints of caramel and tart lemon. overall a nice lager and a nice surprise to find in a red lobster where your selection is usually pretty limited to big names(I think my other tap choices were blue and keith’s).
