Bottle from snojerk321. Karl Strauss is in the house ho. Karl Strauss.com holler at your boy. Orange Blossom fest drunken debauchery whats up bitch thats whats up. Driving the palate van around with people sitting on cases like a motherfucking taxi cruising through Riverside breaking all the laws. Oh yeah. Nose on this one is light belgian yeast, touch of brown bread, vanilla, and caramel. Pretty pleasant nose actually. Great looking beer, awesome lace and head on top of a brown beer with nice red hues. Brown bread, light fruity yeast notes and a touch of vanilla. Easy drinking yet rather complex. Light sweet and dry mouth feel. Really nice Bet this mother fuking thing wasn’t made in mother fucking Stevens Point. Step your game up.

Draft. Pours a slightly hazy brown, with off-white head. Malt, caramel, sweetness, and light nut flavors. This is rather cheap tasting, not that good, but what do you expect from Karl Strauss.

Poured at the speed blogging - Beer bloggers conference
This was a Belgian beer with very little Belgian yeast in the aroma and flavor. A very tasty beer but as for style this misses the chart. Good malts and a nice finish it was like a brown ale to me.

Unibroue m’a élevé avec ce genre d’arôme et je suis rarement dans cet état d’esprit maintenant mais celle-là me plait. Le Brown malt explose et les épices, même si elles sont bien présentes, ne choquent jamais.

Draft at the Karl Strauss beer cart in Disneyland Adventure Park. Nose is nuts, light dark fruits, and a hint of roast. Clear cherry brown with a medium, heavy lacing beige head. Flavor is lightly sweet and spicy with lots of nuts. Pretty nice to find a tasty ale at Disney.
