COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This distinctive full bodied red ale is crafted in single batches using a unique blend of four malts. Naturally aged, Rickard's Red is brewed according to the traditional recipe of the Capilano Brewing Company of Vancouver.

Sugary caramel aroma that seems somewhat bland. Hearty chestnut color, which may be enhanced by additive. Taste is a simple but effective sweet malt with very minor hopping. Body is too light for the look, although the bite is greater than most of these dark lagers. Needs more of all its base characteristics.

Somewhat red. Somewhat malty. Somwhat hoppy. Somewhat beery. I’ve had worse but I’ve certainly had better.

Tried this rather mediocre beer in Toronto during March Madness in 2013. The beer wasn’t very good. Reddish brown in appearance, slightly caramel in flavor, and left just as stale an aftertaste in my mouth as the basketball game.

Reimer96 (1159) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2013
Pours a deep reddish copper with a big foamy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of malts, caramel and toffee. Taste is sweet malts, caramel and some faint earthy hops. Decent for molson but overall too thin.

lesifflebiere (1186) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
Couleur rouge-brun assez clair, très peu de mousse et encore moins de bulles. Au nez, sucre cuit, malt grillé, houblon, et de timides notes florales au passage. Intéressante touche sucrée, mais les céréales dominent avec une pointe de salé. On note également du bois et du fumé. Finale très aqueuse. Une rousse correcte, mais qui manque cruellement de caractère ; elle n’a rien pour rebuter personne, mais elle n’impressionne pas non plus.

Had on tap at a restaurant when they told me they didn’t offer stout. Drinkable, not very exciting. Certainly not a dark lager. Glass was uneven red, blonde in the thinner sections of the glass. Taste was not memorable. High alcohol percentage, good value in that respect.

Boring Molson product, but not nearly as shitty as most of their products. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It’s hard to make a beer any worse than this stuff... I think they used to serve this stuff in town for $2 a pint. It’s not even worth that much. Artificial taste.

dpjuart (1048) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Courtesy Nate. Red with eggshell head, 1 finger, good lacing. Nose of caramel, sweet butter. Mild fruit, some caramel, with a touch of hop crispness.

A notch above regular largescale brewers. Had out of bottle. Malty aroma, thicker palate.
