Drank from tap. Makes a world of difference from bottled.

I don't care: I like this beer. I first had it on draft at the hotel we always stay in in Montreal, and I was just amazed at how pleasant and easy it was to drink. The taste is there, and you can keep on drinking them. Last had on draft in April in Montreal...Clear irish setter red when served, came topped with a nice white frothy head. Clean aroma. Great medium mouthfeel, good carbonation, it's mostly all malt with a biscuity aftertaste. I guess this could be my favorite macro! I would not turn this beer down. Since I've been known to have many in a row, it gets a 5 for drinkability.

Rickard's Red has finally been added to the inventory of beers available New Brunswick Canada's liquor stores.
This excellent red ale was first introduced to me some 5 years ago in Ontario forcing me to travel far and wide to get my hands on a few.
At a recent tasting with a few friends Rickard's Red was at the top of the list along with a local New Brunswick beer called Alpine. At this tasting we learned not to mix too many types of beers together as the drinkabiltity of lighter tasting beers such as Corona and Budweiser were very negatively affected by the stronger tasting ones such as Rickard's.
