341mL. Oh joy, another Rickard’s. A clear gold to yellow pour creates a weak, suddy white head that leaves behind webby, white lace. Nose is small corn. Taste is very soapy and grassy hop dominant. Suddy mouthfeel. Very grassy. Not too bad and I can see they attempted a hoppy pilsener but the end result is a little too bland and I think most people will not be able to appreciate the subtlety.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma has a touch of pale pils malt and some light grassy hops. A fairly light bitterness, but it’s decently balanced. Okay - if a bit standard.

On tap, somewhere in one ofthe airports at some poin on my trip home from the maritimes. How do you turn a six hour flight into a fourteen hour marathon stopover odyssey? Book on points with Air Crapada! Anyway, I thought this was going to be a Molson Canadian clone that I’d have to choke down, but it was actually okay. The overly sweet adjuncty pale malts are still here, but there is actually some grassy hops in here, faint but present nonetheless. Not aweful, but not something I will be returning to either. A barely-there pilsener.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A sucker for punishment picks up the mix pack for the office so he can try this. Bottle. Gold with a nice white head. Some light scent but hard to pinpoint. Plain but there is a bit of a pepperiness to the finish. Unfortunately there is a bit of lemon in the body that has just enough ingredients to come across as rough.
