Beer Review #14
Appearance: Of course this beer pours a hearty rust Red,
with a good amount of foamy head. The tiny
active bubbles make it quite attractive beer.
Taste: A nice balanced flavor of spice, semi sweet yet mild caramel. Pleasant
to the tongue and seems soft and light.
Mouthfeel: Starts to get a little heavy after a drink or two. It has a nice mild
carbonation with bit of a bite at the end. The dry finish makes it
Beer Type: American amber/Red Ales are a balanced beer, with toasted malt
characters and a light fruitiness. Rickard's Red has the toast, and is
very balanced, but lacks anything to push it from the middle of the
Drinkability: It first tried this beer in a pub, and I think that is its home. Its a
great pub brew, with some wings or salt. Nice to take one home
but not one id take to the lake.
Scoring 18/25 Slightly beer than average. It would be one I would try in larger
quantities with some friends at a pub.
