There is a sickeningly sweet aftertaste that I donít like. Itís not as pronounced on tap. I love the beautiful red color of this beer though. Nice try by Molson but itís a miss with me. I prefer Mickís Red by Labatt. Itís essentialy the same beer but the finish isnít as sweet.

Nice balance of hops and malt and a pleasant aroma. For a Canadian beer unusually good head retention. Rich honey taste followed by a long sweet finish. Much better on tap. Lives up to its name - itís really red.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2008 (draft)Very nice and smooth. Very dark and huge head. Nice kick back beer. The only downside is that it is a little gassy.

was recommended by the waitress of my favourite pub. I liked this beer a lot. Had a very good full flavour and went down easy. I could easily drink this regularly.

Very good beer. Both in the bottle and on tap. One of the best beers i have ever tasted. Little less creamy than the old, which is a good thing. Excellent!

Another attempt of a macro trying to emulate a micro. Slightly better than the gold.

I love to drink this beer whenever I can get my hands on it. I perfer it on draft than in bottles, but itís good either way. Slightly different taste than most beers. It has a really nice red colour to it and goes down very easy. I recommend trying this one, itís a very good beer.
