COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Specially aged with lightly toasted Oak, we’ve carefully crafted this festive seasonal to capture the warmth of an old, iron-stove Oakhouse. With subtle hints of vanilla and a deep amber hue, this rich winter lager is ideal alongside succulent stew or piping hot roast. All you need now is plenty of firewood. And matches.

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.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
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.

ljthiessen (159) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 9, 2014
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.

RickTheRick (193) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
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.

Minderbinder (1583) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Can 473ml. Pours golden with low off-white head. Almost amber. Aroma is of malt, sugar, oak, grain. Taste is of malt, vanilla, oak, sugar, slight acidity. Fruits. Palate: Light body. Overall: A bit bold. The acidity turns unpleasant as you down the can. Not gross, but I would not drink alot of this.

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
A hazed amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light oaked notes, vanilla, not bad. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with light vanilla, oak, decent. Decent.

Raistlin (90) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
It was actually pretty damn good beer. It had quite a thick flavour to it. Head was white and hanged around for while. It was pretty smooth, no alchoholic taste to it at all at the end, which is what you would expect from beer 5.0% over alcohol in most ceases, but not this one. Has a nutty taste, rich texture, really enjoyable beer.

Eructoblaster (2852) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 12, 2013
Can - 473ml. Amber body with heavy carbonation and a thin white foamy/bubbly head. Thin malty/hoppy aroma with corny, grassy, and some flowery hints. Its boring corny taste carries some subtle woody notes and ends with a short bittersweety finish. Very ordinary.
