Nice color, sweet smell / taste, fair beer. RR Pale Ale is only a lighter version of this beer. Sean Quinn and the flesh eaters.

There is a sickeningly sweet aftertaste that I don’t like. It’s not as pronounced on tap. I love the beautiful red color of this beer though. Nice try by Molson but it’s a miss with me. I prefer Mick’s Red by Labatt. It’s essentialy the same beer but the finish isn’t 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 - it’s 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.

Don’t like it very much. It has a disgusting, sweet aftertaste.

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.
