UPDATED: DEC 18, 2003 I don't know how good this brew will be. Very nice amber color,small head that dissapated some what quickly.Nice aroma,malty slight sweetness detected,some hints of fruit,citrus i believe,Yah thats it.man it's great to see the Grand Forks area is finally getting in some decent brews again.This one is pretty good and well worth trying more often.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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

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).

head diminished pretty quick. colour is a pleasing red. taste is malty, with a little caramel-ness. quite good. i was really shocked.
