Scent of cinnamon, toffee, and vanilla. Clear, amber colour. Slightly spicy and oaky taste, but very slight - primarily malt and other lager flavours. Medium body with mild carbonation. A bit flavourful than the average lager, but not too much more.

Cloudy gold with white head. Some like toasted malt aroma and flavour and a slight acidic kick. Nothing really too jolting to excite my taste. Over all a decent chug but nothing more then a thirst quencher for the winter blues.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
473 ml can from TBS, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear light amber with a fair white head.
Aroma: Oddly smoky...wood smoke, like a very light version of Bamberger beers, a touch of caramel and brown sugar, a touch of dark dried fruitiness, vaguely reminiscent of Creemore, a bit of vanilla as it warms (power of suggestion...?).
Palate: Medium body, fairly lively carbonation.
Flav.: A bit smoky, a little vinous, vague oakiness, maybe a touch of vanilla; dry with low bitterness and a somewhat watery, vague, not very pleasant finish.
The pint I had a while back was a bit better. This is messy and lacks character.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Crack can and dare I say I smell some oak, toffe and vanilla. Up close I smell like a molson canadian lager type smell with a little okay and vanilla. Taste wise it’s too lager forward in taste and smell but after taste not super light but no where near strong I can taste some oak, vanilla, toffe and some lemon zest. Some sips r good some sips could be better. Too lager forward.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from the lcbo. Amber, orange pour, small white head. Aroma of slig spice, oak, and touches of vanilla mingling with some pale malts. The body and carb are run of the mill for molson. The finish is a tad buttery, with more woody vanilla, and pale malts. Why would you oak age a lager? Not my bag,

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
473ml can from the lcbo. Light amber with a white head. The aroma is spicy/oaky. The flavour is slightly sweet, oaky vanilla, thin malt body. The finish is drying and slightly tannic which reduces drinkablility. A genuine oak aged lager. Quite good but not repeatable.

Pale amber colour, lightly hazed, with a thick white head. The nose is softly sweet with some faint malt sweetness and a little bit of vanilla. Simple structure but not too sweet. A touch of caramel and some woody bitterness. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Hazy light golden amber pour, off-white head. Aromas of candied fruit and oak. Flavour is light fruits, malts and grains with a light oaky taste. Surprisingly full-bodied and flavourful for a lager; too bad the flavours are just okay.

D’une couleur dorée éclatante, limpide et bien effervescente, cette bière saisonnière a un collet très fin, mais persistant. Au nez, on dénote de légères traces boisées et beaucoup d’épices (muscade). Le boisé réapparaît tout doucement en bouche, jumelé avec une toute petite dose de vanille et d’épices. Bien maltée, la Rickard’s Oakhouse manque toutefois de corps pour que nous puissions y revenir régulièrement.
