1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured on tap, light amber. The smell and taste were both, at first, very metallic. The metal went away after awhile, but left nothing special behind. Not very good.

The first in the Rickard’s family and while not as flavorful as a true Vienna Lager it did the job in providing something a bit more flavorful in the mass market. Ok.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bière de couleur ambrée avec un col pratiquement inexistant. Nez métallique de malt caramélisé. En bouche c’est très simple et métallique. Bonne bière pour une bière commercial mais sinon boff...

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours an amber red with a modest head that disappears fairly quickly. Nothing distinctive on the palate, a modest finish with some bitterness. Overall, an unimpressive beer, not one that I would choose, however it's not bad given it's from a macro brewery.

On draft at some restaurant in Montreal. First and last Rickards I will ever taste. It was so nasty that there is no way you’ll get me tasting any of the other Rickard styles. Ever. No.

Aroma: not much to speak of , some light caramel malt aromas
Taste: some sweet caramel malt notes to begin fibishing with a basic hop bitterness

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle offered by some dude at a social event. Pours a dull red with a medium white head with great retention and big lacing. Aroma of faint hops and hay. Taste is lightly sweet and ever so lightly hoppy (some noble hops character) and not really bitter. Body is light and mouthfeel is thin. Overall: not too bad but pretty boring... On the "macrobrewery scale" it would score around average in my book.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap. Ruby brown with a fast disappearing head. Aroma of sweet malts. Flavour is just a little flat and more malt and slightly bitter. Meh.
