Molson Coors Canada Rickard’s Red – Amber Lager/Vienna at 5.2% ABV

Molson Coors Canada Rickard’s Red Amber Lager/Vienna at 5.2% ABV (C$3.64 at NLC Stavanger, 473 ml, no packaging date or best before)

Appearance: clear red-tinted pale to medium amber with one finger of light tan head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, good lacing. (4/5) Aroma: light caramel malt, slightly nutty. (4/10) Taste: mild to moderate sweet, mild bitter. (4/10) Palate: light to medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry medium duration finish. (3/5)

Probably the best thing Molson Coors makes – which, y’unnerstand, isn’t a particularly high bar, but it does mean it pretty much by definition could be worse. Pretty standard domestic amber/vienna/Irish red, so a notch or two better than a macro lager, but hardly interesting. Decent enough thirst quencher with lunch, though. (10/20)
