Nice red colour. (well, duh!) The head looks OK but dies. There is a little bit of malt in the nose and the tiniest bit of malt in the flavour. Other flavours are pretty much generic macro-lager-like. Very little aftertaste and the palate is quite thin. Overall, better than most Molson.

A favorite, especially when sitting at a patio pub watching people go by. Slow drinking/slipipng beer. More sophisticated than most Canadian brews. Definitely not to be chugged (amazing bloat after six). A craft beer in the finest commercial sense. Great, particularly great, in fact, with fish and chips or steak and kidney pie.

Too sweet. Reminds me of fizzy grenadine, if there is such a thing?

Seems like a good beer for any occaision whether it be watching Hockey or playing golf. It has a more distinctive bodily texture than that of other Molson products which I am impressed with. Seems it has a more rich taset rather than an acidic taste like Canadian.

Had it on tap in Kingston. Was great after a Molson Export. Rather sweet, almost caramel.

I saw a red beer so I drank it in hopes that my pee might be red to unfortunately it wasn’t but trust me I will keep trying.
