3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml bottle from a four-style Rickard’s twelve-pack from Sobeys Liquor outlet (and it came with a free T-shirt - go, me!), served in a pilsner flute, Pours a beautiful bright gold with moderate carbonation and a white, meringue-like head that leaves bubbly lace loops. Aroma is composed of lightly toasted malt and herbal, even woody, hops that are a bit peppery; flavor is much the same...softly expressed malts and hops, just sweet enough, and a trace of pepper. Thin-bodied, with a clean finish. Compared to other OG pilsners from guys like Urquell or Radeberger, its key elements are weak or muffled, but it’s still very pleasant drinking from a subset of a larger brewer, and that commands respect from me. Nice!

As far as Rickard’s goes, this is one of their top 3 offerings (best of the worst? lol). Pours a light straw blonde, tastes of wheat and some light, grainy malts. Not a bad beer but I am not a huge fan of Rickards or Pilseners.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the mixed pack. Man this is a popular mixed pack if there ever was one. Straw gold pour with a frothy cream head. Faint grainy nose has fruit and grassy hops. Slightly bitter with some grainy sweetness. Its pretty standard but not offensive or poorly made. Ill drinm it at a christmas function and be ok with it.
