214/614) Orwells, Etobicoke: Rickard's Cardigan by Molson Coors of Ontario: **; spicy nose; tastes of pumpkin spices: nutmeg, ginger, cinammon, allspice; pumpkin - not so much; a fine beer for the Fall and from one of the biggies at that; posters at one forum seemed to be writing their reviews in advance when news of this came out but, unfashionable though it may be, I have to give Molson Coors credit for a good beer and I hope it might serve as a gateway beer to the full-on craft beer experience for some;
It was quite a job to find this one. I have passed two billboards extolling the virtues of this beer in my hometown but I was not able to find it at any pub, nor do my local Beer Stores and LCBOs carry it.
I used to visit Orwells regularly when I worked across the street, over a decade ago. At least a couple of servers from those days are still there which can only be a good sign. It's not fancy, just a casual, comfortable, friendly place and when I'm in the area I make an effort to visit, if only for one pint.
