Meilby (11692) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2015
Draught @ Outback Steakhouse, Niagara Falls, ON
Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel and hint of grass. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a long caramel finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

UXO (1922) - CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Appearance: clear red-tinted pale to medium amber with one finger of light tan head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, good lacing. (4/5) Aroma: light caramel malt, slightly nutty. (4/10) Taste: mild to moderate sweet, mild bitter. (4/10) Palate: light to medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium duration finish. (3/5) Probably the best thing Molson Coors makes - which, y’unnerstand, isn’t a particularly high bar, but it does mean it pretty much by definition could be worse. Pretty standard domestic amber/vienna/Irish red, so a notch or two better than a macro lager, but hardly interesting. Decent enough thirst quencher with lunch, though. (10/20)

On tap. A clear amber colored beer topped by a dense, light beige head. The aroma has a light touch of bread, caramel and some nuts and dried fruits. It’s rather thin on the palate, with a soft carbonation, dry. Not much bitterness or sweetness going on, but at least there’s some caramel and nuts. Short finish. Quite forgettable this one. 150613

Beerathon (1681) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Chestnut in color with semi-creamy white head. Very smooth body with medium mouthfeel. Malts of caramel and faint sweetness. Easy drinking.

Ok Beer but not that refreshing to me ! The after-taste was kind of bad to me.

rarbring (2290) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2015
Aroma: The smell is dominated by the malt aromas, sweet brown bread mainly.
Appearance: A clear red amber brew with an off-white head that leaves rather good lacing.
Taste: The taste has an upfront sweetness, raisins, dried figs, acidity from green pears and ripe lemons.
Palate: Rather high carbonation, refreshing for being a red.
Overall: Not at all bad (the Rickard’s seem to be better than Molson in average).
Note: on-tap at a Baton Rouge. Reviewed 2010-09-12.

Clear amber with an off-white head-- attractive colour. Sweet & toasty malts flavour. Medium body & carbonation. Slight bitterness in the finish.

Best cheap beer I’ve had, very common on tap so I find myself drinking a lot of it. For the price, no complaints.

Metalflake (73) - Les Coteaux, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Bottle, 341ml, given to me at Christmas. I hadn’t had a Rickard’s in years, figured I’d try it out again. Disappointed - I remembered this being a pretty decent red when I used to frequent the pubs, but it seems to have lost any depth it had along the Molson-purchase path. My honest impression is of Molson Export, with food colouring added. Drinkable, but I woudn’t pay good money for another.

gregorymconway (233) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 quite English influenced with a lot of malt characteristics coming through. Real raw and malty, Body is quite thin. and a very minimal hop presence is around.
