34.1 cL bottle in Toronto airport. Pours clear and golden amber with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malty and light breadish. Bitter, malty and almost caramelish. More bitter and dry than sweet caramelish. Dry and roasted malty finish.

In Montreal Airport as the last beer to cap off a fantastic week at RBSG - I needed to use my last CAD, and had just enough for this. The color is red and it has a small beige head. The aroma is slightly sour combined with notes of berries. The flavor is very sour, but still with some notes of berries, and a dry end. I wonder if brewing cereal has been used in this one.

Desperation draft at a restaurant that had nothing else. Clear golden color, medium white head. Aroma of papery bread. Taste is light caramel and lemon.

Sampled draught. Nut brown. Roasty and very sweet. Sugary and raw with traces of metal. Low bitterness. Useless!

this beer is so anonymous that I keep forgetting I already had it, LOL

Amber color, creamy head. No aroma. Very light caramel flavor, ordinary bitterness, very watery; a bit papery at the end. If I close my eyes, I may think it’s a Pale Lager, lame.

2010-03-17, draught at Raven Pub, North Vancouver, 5-4-4-2-8=23
Dark amber color. Light aroma of apple skins. Dry mouthfeel, and very light caramel flavor. Low bitterness. Also a bit stale. Bad.

Red mahogany color. As close to a Lager as a Vienna can get (side to side with the Kokanee they are difficult to distinguish). Amazing for the lack of roasted malt or caramel.

harrisoni (19157) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2006
Bottle at Peak’s Bar, Vancouver Airport. Clear amber, thin beige head. Some malt, bit stale. Not much flavour in mouth, some toffee. No real hop, some toffee, touch of dryness. Otherwise very dull, but no bad flavours.

mcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 Pours a dark amber with a bubbly off-white head. Smooth, but mild flavour of sweet malts. The best of Rickard’s beers.

Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2000
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2006 Rich dark amber colour. No head. Aroma of caramel and grains. Initial taste is of nothing. This is followed by a mismatch of water and brewer’s caramel. Cloying and watery don’t jive, dude. Harsh carbonation. Ghastly canned corn and caramel finish. Heavable. Exemplifies Oakes’ Rule of Beer #1 - if a beer has mountains on the label and isn’t brewed in the mountains, it will suck.

yngwie (17168) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015
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

Amber ale with a bland nose. Sweet malts without too much hops. Some fake caramel taste comes out...a sweeteed EX with some coulouring.
