3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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!

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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!

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).

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.
