Bottle- This bottle was given to me by a co-worker. According to her, someone had brought this over to her house a few years ago for a party, and left some behind. She doesn’t drink beer, so put them in her cellar room and forgot about them. We got talking about Rickard’s White at work a while back and she had mentioned that she had some of this from years past......I doubted it was the gold she had, but she assured me it was. After receiving not one but TWO bottles of this from her, I was sure this would not be in a state to drink, and therefore not in a state to rate either. But after cracking the seal of the first one.....I heard a lovely fizz and a quick blast of air escaping. Could this have held up in her cellar room? It certainly did. Pale gold pour with a thin white head that is quite short lived. Nose of muted grains and cardboard and a weird fruity component. Tastes of pale malts and sweet grains with just a bit of stale cardboard bitterness.Fizzy, quick finish. Not that good, but I wasn’t expecting much.

like i’ve said in most of my other molson ratings, i swear they have one MASSIVE vat, and they brew all their beers in that, and leave it up to the marketing department to sell the beer, this stuff is awful.

Never to be an exception for having Rickard’s Red. I avoid this one most of the time.

Maybe I’ve been hoodwinked but I was impressed by this from a macro. Nice thick white head o a golden body. Aroma and flavour hint at a Belgian taste, almost like a home brew Leffe. Nice body with a hint of yeast in the finish and a sugary nose. It is not a great beer but above average for Molson. Not sure that the average macro drink would ever have a second one of these.

A beer that was obviously produced more by the marketing department and the bean counters than by any true brewing craftsman.

Worse than Rickard's Red. One gets the feeling that Molson has a giant vat that they use to fill the bottles of all their brands. Nothing to recommend at all.

Most canadian beer is crap and this beer is no exception. Tastes just like bud light but probably worse.

(Bottle) Another terrible beer by Molson. Pours a thin, white head and a golden body. Lime and corn aroma. Flavours of slight hops and malt in an ocean of water. God, I hate the Canadian Marcos!

Similar to regular Rickards Red but not as toffee like. A little bit of cream is noticed but except from that its pretty watery.

Just another losing entry in the race. Watery...............................
