[5725-20130821] Can. Lemon gingerale aroma. Slightly hazy, pale orange body with a quick foamy white head. Sweet lemon drop flavour has a lingering ginger note. Light body. Alcopop. (6/3/4/2/9) 2.4-

Pours clear, with a frothy head. This beer has very little aroma, and even less taste. I had to put a wedge of Lime just to make it taste like anything, just your standard bland macro crap. Nothing to see hear, move along.

To be honest I would rather drink lemon pledge. It’d probably have a more realistic lemon flavor. Shandys are pretty weak as far as beers go but this one is an abomination. No flavor, no body, no character other than artificial lemon syrup.

I had this in a can a couple of times now. Its alright but loses points as it is basically a carbon copy of all other mass made macro Whites that seem to be flooding the market. That;s what it tasted like. Rickards White with a bit less spice. Medium gold with a frothy head, nose of lemon and grains. Sweet, quite bitter but it is short lived. Just squeeze lemon in your beer next time for the same effect.

Sample during Calgary International Beerfest 2014. Hideous fake lemon cleaner soda-pop non-beer beverage. Truly aweful.

bunget (551) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
341ml bottle. Pale yellow, low head, poor retention. Aroma: lemonade, taste: lemonade. It’s not a beer. It’s an alcoholic lemonade.

Rickards was my favorite big brewery when I first really got into beer. They have been phoning it in for years... or my palate has become more refined.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
Horrible pale yellow with little head. Aroma of fake lemon. Hardly any beer flavour in this watery palated brew. Just weak overall. A decision of make a constructive criticism of the beer has proven to be a waste of time.

Bon, en allant chercher un peu de Club Soda au marché, j’entrevois cette belle cannette qui me fait de l’œil. "Mais non, c’est de la Rickard’s" me dis-je. Mais le citron attaché à la remorque me fait sourire, et je l’achète. Donc, la torrieuse. C’est limite point de vue pâleur. C’est très clair et une petite mousse tente, tant bien que mal, à persister. C’est certain que le citron tient le haut du pavé dans le rayon des arômes, ensuite, ça sent les malt et le sirop. Y’a pas grand chose côté goût. C’est sucré, à peine citronné et quelque peu malté. Ce n’est pas une surprise. Même s’y on s’y attends ,on espère un peu. (803-090913)
