Rickard's Red

Rickard's Red (5.2%): an amber ale from Canada. Not too long ago I tried Rickard's White and thought it was excellent. If you follow the blog on a regular basis you know I'm a big fan of ambers, hence I had to try Rickard's Red.

  • Pours a beautiful red liquid, yes it's really red!
  • Smells somewhat fruity, kind of grape-like.
  • Flavor is rather thin with some bitterness and malt.
  • Aftertaste is agreeable, reminds me of dry fruits like dates.
  • Weak buzz.
  • Boring can.

Verdict: a fairly solid amber ale. Unfortunately it's too thin.
