look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Serving Type: 16 oz. Draught poured into a nice Rickards glass.

A- Pours a nice ruby colour topped by a white 1 1/2 finger head. Head dissipates fairly quickly and leaves a thin film. Lots of lacing on the glass.

S- Sweet, lightly roasted malt. Not much in the way of hops as the brewery description states.

T- Lightly roasted malt, lots of caramel sweetness, and a mild hop finish.

M- Light-Medium carbonation and a fairly thin body.

O- Rickards Red. One of the best brews in the Rickards line but definitely not one of the best Red Lagers out there. If you're looking for a tasty brew that is good with a steak and available at most restaurants (in Canada at least), Rickards Red can do the job. If you have a choice, definitely choose draught over bottle (the bottles have a weird metallic taste). Overall, I recommend this beer.
