Last month when Molson announced Rickard’s Dark as the new addition to the Rickard’s line-up, I was intrigued. Although it’s not nearly my favourite white beer, I enjoy a pint of Rickard’s White here and there. And Rickard’s Red often finds its way onto my table during wing-nights as a commonly accessible red ale. Red also happens to be my girlfriend’s ultimate favourite since it reminds her of being a student and playing beer pong. Needless to say, I was more than willing to try Rickard’s new brew. Plus, the maple syrup idea seemed interesting.
Now that I’ve got a chance to try it, I must say, Rickard’s succeeded in creating another solid brew.
