Beer Review #13

Rickard's Dark
4.8% Alcohol/Volume
Molson Breweries
English Porter

Appearance: The beer pours into the glass a
                    reddish dark caramel color, that is
                    clear with a lasting foamy head.
                    Score 4/5

Taste: Semi Sweet taste with a toasted and smoke smell and taste.
          The sweetness comes from a very mild maple hint.
          Score 4/5

Mouthfeel: It has a soft feel and surprisingly light for a dark beer.
                 The carbonation is a little harsh and finishes slightly
                 Score 4/5

Beer Type: English Porter's are a unique style of beer. They are meant
                  to be dark in color, malty with a roasted flavor, and be slighlty
                  bitter. For a mass produced beer it fits fairly well.
                  Scoring 3/5

 Drinkability: Slight weight of the beer as well as the bitterness works
                    against its drinkability.  It would work well with food.
                    Its a nice beer to use in a recipe that calls for a dark beer.
                    Scoring 4/5

 Scoring 19/25 Slightly beer than average. It would be one i would try in larger
                       quantities with some friends at a pub.
