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.

Golden/Brown in the glass. Really like the complexity of the aromas. Cinnamon, figs. A bit of nutmeg. Buttered toast taste, medium to heavy on the palate. Clean finish, not as complex as the nose. Another good seasonal from Rickards.

Bière blonde de 5.5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat céréalière, sucré et avec une légère amertume. Elle possède un beau col au versement. Elle possède un goût de poire et de banane, avec un arrière-goût sucré. Elle possède un petit goût céréalier minime avec une légère amertume en finale. Elle porte bien son nom de bière d’hiver, car elle est chaleureuse. Correcte !

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.

Comes in a 6-pack of brown bottles. Seems like Rickard’s is growing lately (lots of new kind). This winter lager pours a clean, light-amber colour, with a big frothy off-white head, good retention and loads of dirty lacing. The aromas are a mix of good and bad. Decent vanilla from the oak and some mild spices, but has a few adjunct ingredient found in cheaper swill beers. The mouthfeel is smooth and slightly creamy. The taste is a little better, not tasting the adjunct stuff. Again, light vanilla from the oak chips (as I do not think they used barrels for this - at this price). Also, a nice sweetness with notes of whiskey in the background. An overall pretty good lager, and above average product from Molson (that I would buy once every winter). Kind of a lighter tasting Innis & Gunn brew.

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.

Bottle. 5.5%. Clear copper coloured pour with a bubbly white head. . Aroma is caramel malts, vanilla, mild oaky notes. Not at all expected from a macro lager, esp. MolsonCoors. Taste is more of the same, all balanced into a killer winter seasonal. This is a welcome addition to any Christmas fireplace gathering. Kudos where kudos are due.
