This beer pours a hazy amber with nice laceing and decent head retention. There is a woody and roasted toffee smell. There is a strong bite in the begining with wood flavors and bitter hopps. The after taste mildly hoppy and sweet.

Bottle with an expiration date of Oct 07. Pours a caramel-red. It is a very nice color. The aroma is strong with malts and even a tad fruity. Smooth feeling in the mouth but a little on the bitter side. Still, it tastes pretty close to most of the reds I’ve had.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - AUG 8, 2007
This beer reminds me alot of rickards red without the notes of spice. Pours a standard amber ale amber colour with a white head that disolves into some decent lacing. Aroma of malty caramel and hops with light notes of grain. Flavours are well balanced with sweet malt upfront and a touch of hop bitterness in the finish, really basic and straight forward but well done a good meal beer just like Rickards Red. Goes good with barbecued chicken.

Bought a six pack of this stuff, pours light amber in color with a medium white head. Aroma and flavor are of caramel malt and some fruitness.More bitter than the golden ale but still balanced and drinkable. I would prefer this over their golden for summer barbecues.

Pours a medium copper color with a white, fizzy, fully diminishing head. Clear body. Aroma is of light bread malts with soapy notes. Initial taste is lightly acidic, shifting to a light sweet finish with long duration. Light on the mouth, it has a watery texture with soft carbonation. Reviewed on February 12th, 2007.

(Bottle (best before 9/06) from Julio’s Liquors) Reddish-amber with small biscuit head. Nose is light floral hops and malt. Decent full mouthfeel, a touch fizzy though. Flavor pretty much matches aroma - somewhat flowery. Touch of bitter in finish.
