Specially aged with lightly toasted oak, we've carefully crafted this festive seasonal to capture the warmth of an old, iron-stove Oakhouse. With subtle hints of vanilla and a deep amber hue, this rich winter lager is ideal alongside succulent stew or piping hot roast. All you need now is plenty of firewood. And matches.

    This is supposed to be a seasonal winter warmer, and based on that description, it fails miserably. The glass is holding a cloudy light copper coloured beer with a one inch frothy white head. Weak notes of vanilla, grass, and musty hops permeate the air. The flavour leans towards the bitter side of the spectrum with very little malt or vanilla influence.

    Pours a huge frothy white head and has a clear golden amber appearance. Some dirty lacing. Aromas of light toasty and sweet malts. A little bit of vanilla as well. Flavours of light malts, grains and bready malts. Subtle cinnamon hints, some nutmeg and light spice hops. Faint carbonation. Puckering and prickly sensation. Full bodied mouthfeel. Not too bad, pretty good winter warmer.

    Comes in a 6-pack of brown bottles. Seems like Rickard's is growing lately (lots of new kind). This winter lager pours a clean, light-amber colour, with a big frothy off-white head, good retention and loads of dirty lacing. The aromas are a mix of good and bad. Decent vanilla from the oak and some mild spices, but has a few adjunct ingredient found in cheaper swill beers. The mouthfeel is smooth and slightly creamy. The taste is a little better, not tasting the adjunct stuff. Again, light vanilla from the oak chips (as I do not think they used barrels for this - at this price). Also, a nice sweetness with notes of whiskey in the background. An overall pretty good lager, and above average product from Molson (that I would buy once every winter). Kind of a lighter tasting Innis & Gunn brew.
