    Again, probably more of a golden/blonde ale than an APA. Colour - light gold, thin white head. Aroma - grass. Mouthfeel - thin. Flavour - grainy with a touch of a bitter finish. Overall - just below average.

    I have never been a fan of this beer, it's also not one you see around all that often. I have it every once in a while, but there is nothing outstanding about it.

    This is some God awful stuff. It pours a translucent pale gold with a generous white head. The aroma is sickeningly skunky. The malt and hops (if they're actually there) are hidden by a strong stench. The flavour is similar to burnt toast. Not pleasant at all.

    I tried this beer on July 23, 2007 at 'Hard Rock Cafe - Rogers Centre (SkyDome)' in Toronto. The beer was a very pale yellow colour with an ample head that died quickly, but left traces on the side of the glass. There was very little aroma of note, what aroma there was...was weak and hard to identify. The mouthfeel was crisp, slightly thin-bodied, with some hints of mild carbonation. The taste was very watered down as well. Not something I would order again. I have to admit, the thin crisp mouthfeel and watery taste would make this beer go down very easy which would make it a great beer for University students wanting to get drunk on something other than Blue or Canadian

    Terrible macro swill. Possibly worse than the red which is not easy to do. Well below average ale that is only slightly better than other macro "india pale ales" Watery taste, little hop aroma or taste. Very poor..

    I found this beer very refreshing. It's your standard pale ale. Nothing special but it's something cheap when you're just plain thirsty and want to throw one back.

    On tap at robins....appearance is like the standard fizzy golden ales Molsons makes but there is a distinct breadyness in the flavour profile..medium light bodied and quick finish with a biscuit after tase...hops sit in the back ...not overly sweet...not a bad beer to have with a burger but nothing distinct to recommend it either

    Dispicable... This, as well as the red, I had sampled one night ( I have had them many times before ) after drinking some good beer. It was in this comparison, from switching over from quality to this on tap, that I could really see it for what it is. Molson disguises and prices this like its micro or craft - its not. This is not even a pale ale. Corn taste well prevalent and hops are simply repulsive. Bad texture and very incomplete in its makeup. A disguisting attempt by the monsters at Molsons.

    Tried this in a sampler pack and was not dissapointed, the flavor was crisp and it went down easy while watching a curling match. Rickard's is something I just can't seem to find enough money in the couch for but someday could see myself growing old with this beer.

    The poorest of the three Rickard's beers. No discernable aroma. A below average appearance gets bumped up to avergae by the nice head. The body is very watery and thin, as the taste, but there is a nice honey undertone in the finish.
