My go to for pubs that don't have any craft beer, a moderately red /amber, nutty finish.

On tap at the only restaurant I could find in Harvre St Pierre.
Reddish copper color. Bready sweet caramel maltiness, little to no hops. Not horrible.

I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. The flavor seems somewhat bland on the first sip but the mouthfeel is satisfying and the nutty finish makes it very drinkable.

Clear, minimal haziness, copper color with dense but light activity. Lightly creamy white 2 finger head lasting around 3 minutes with average legs.

Faint aromas and flavors of caramel, citrus, fruits, herbal spices. More of a sweet taste with some nuances of bread, toasty and roasted like feel.

Light body with average carbonation. Faint and short finish ending with a slightly fruity aftertaste with minimal spices.

Overall : Average craft; while drinking from a can this beer has passable freshness, too thin, missing some flavors and a proper finish. Not well bottled but better from tap.

I've been enjoying Rickard's for 25 years now. It looks, tastes, and feels a notch above your usual macro. Not much in the aroma department, but a worthy choice if your options are limited.
