Another from my wife's fabulous "buy Kooz beer" trip.
Poured into a pint glass to reveal a reddish-orange beer. I expected a color more like Killians, this seemed less...robust, I guess.
A very weak smell--sort of like dead animal. Weird really.
Tastes...not good. Almost rancid. I don't think I'll be able to finish this one. And it's watery.
I will not try this again.

On tap at Swiss Chalet in Toronto. Pours amber with a thick, long lasting, white head. Aroma is of fermented dough and not much else. Medium, tangy body. Taste is of very unpleasant sour dough. I do not know how is it possible to spoil the beer like that.

Tap: clear dark brown colored beer with absolutely no head or carbonation. Aroma is very neutral with small traces of malts. Taste is also very neutral with traces of malts. Just another macro beer with no taste whatsoever. Very boring beer from Molson.

This beer was read, with a quickly receding head and no lace to speak of. It smells slightly of yeast, but, other than that, there is no real aroma to speak of. An adjuncty taste dominates, and is just kinda of a foul taste over all. I had this beer sitting outside at a restaurant, and it did quench my thirst, and it is relatively drinkable in the right circumstance.

After getting into Niagara Falls, Ontario, I was pumped to try some Canadian brews. I’m not sure exactly how local Kelsey’s on Clifton Hill is, but it had some pretty tasty food and what looked like a decent selection of beers on tap. Good start. Anyway, I asked the server what he liked, and he recommended Rickard’s Red. It’s Canadian, I’ve never heard of it before, and now it has a good word; perfect for my first beer in Canada. Hit it!
On-tap at Kelsey’s in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. Reviewed from notes taken on 07-07-2011.
A: Dark amber shine in the body looks great, with an eggshell head that unfortunately doesn’t last. No lacing at all – the color saves it from looking like a greasy adjunct.
S: A bit of skunk props up the nose, which is so weak it’s almost non-existent. After a little while, slight fruits become apparent, too. They’re mostly stale, though, as is the hints of wheat at the nose’s back end. Not impressive in the slightest.
T: Fruits up front, coupled with some alcohol that rounds off some of the sweet edges. A big swell of grains comes out towards the back end, but they can only be described as musty and worn-out. That’s it. This palate is taste deficient, to be sure.
M: Flat and unfortunate on the tongue. Goes down that soda that has been sitting so long that the ice has melted, making every sip a watery mess. This beer really has nothing going for it.
O: Not a great start, Canada – this was not a pleasant experience. And it’s not because there’s some huge, offense off-taste or a striking flaw; it just wasn’t satisfying or flavorful in any way. Too bad, but it hasn’t shaken my confidence that I’ll find some good brews in Ontario. I’m still on the hunt!

This beer poured a reddish copper color with a long lasting little head. The aroma was a boring mish mash of indolent malts and soapy corn. The taste, while inoffensive, lacked definition. It consisted of some bland malts, minute hop bitterness, and some wet cardboard and soapy(?) notes. The mouthfeel is prickly from high carbonation. This beer is average at best. Its not much better than your average macro swill, it does look prettier though.
