COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Specially aged with lightly toasted Oak, we’ve carefully crafted this festive seasonal to capture the warmth of an old, iron-stove Oakhouse. With subtle hints of vanilla and a deep amber hue, this rich winter lager is ideal alongside succulent stew or piping hot roast. All you need now is plenty of firewood. And matches.

Golden/Brown in the glass. Really like the complexity of the aromas. Cinnamon, figs. A bit of nutmeg. Buttered toast taste, medium to heavy on the palate. Clean finish, not as complex as the nose. Another good seasonal from Rickards.

Tricker (422) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2012
Bière blonde de 5.5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un odorat céréalière, sucré et avec une légère amertume. Elle possède un beau col au versement. Elle possède un goût de poire et de banane, avec un arrière-goût sucré. Elle possède un petit goût céréalier minime avec une légère amertume en finale. Elle porte bien son nom de bière d’hiver, car elle est chaleureuse. Correcte !

473ml can from the lcbo. Light amber with a white head. The aroma is spicy/oaky. The flavour is slightly sweet, oaky vanilla, thin malt body. The finish is drying and slightly tannic which reduces drinkablility. A genuine oak aged lager. Quite good but not repeatable.

Comes in a 6-pack of brown bottles. Seems like Rickard’s is growing lately (lots of new kind). This winter lager pours a clean, light-amber colour, with a big frothy off-white head, good retention and loads of dirty lacing. The aromas are a mix of good and bad. Decent vanilla from the oak and some mild spices, but has a few adjunct ingredient found in cheaper swill beers. The mouthfeel is smooth and slightly creamy. The taste is a little better, not tasting the adjunct stuff. Again, light vanilla from the oak chips (as I do not think they used barrels for this - at this price). Also, a nice sweetness with notes of whiskey in the background. An overall pretty good lager, and above average product from Molson (that I would buy once every winter). Kind of a lighter tasting Innis & Gunn brew.
