"Very solid pale ale, good doses of refreshing citrus with enough malt to balance, but not take over. Like the profile, and it’s quite a refreshing beer too."

Tap - Nice amber color, decent balance but as a pale ale it could use a bit more hops. Palate is a little thin and overcarbonated. The taste is good though and the finish fairly crisp.

mkel07 (3446) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a clear deep burnished amber colour with a fine collar of light beige foam. Caramel, vanilla and butterscotch make up the aroma. Smooth in the mouth with a full rich mouthfeel.

Terminus (3249) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 13, 2011
tap at brewpub in downtown San Diego-pours bright orange with a small white head. nose is piney with light diacytl, especially as it warmed a bit. some sweet grain notes detected in the nose (cereal and cracker). flavors of sweet hops, grainy malt and light sweetness. ok but nothing special. i had high hopes for this beer since it was going to be a cask offering a few days after i sampled it. some lite earthy and herbal notes on the finish-became very herbal over time. ok.

theisti (3243) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Shaker pint draft at the brew pub in Carlsbad, California. Pour is amber golden with a light tan smallish head. Aroma is citrus, fruit stripe gum, and light toasted malt. Taste is the sweet citrus hop, followed quickly by sharp maltiness, and finishing with a mineral earthiness. Palate is light to medium bodied, clean and dry mineral finish.

bytemesis (3219) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy orange amber with a small off-white head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is caramel and pine. Flavor is about the same, light to medium sweet and light bitter. Fairly standard for the style. Medium body, somewhat creamy.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2004 The only reason I drink this was Karl had a lock on all the beers at Street Scene. I know these guys dont give a crap about their beer and it shows. Too bad.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - OCT 16, 2004
(Draft: World Curry in San Diego, CA) Not too bad for a Karl Strauss beer, but I have pretty low expectations of them, so it’s all relative I suppose; Moderately bitter, hoppy, dominant light citrus flavor; Pretty light on the malt, with a mild sweetness; Smells lightly sweet and malty with some hops and citrus; Very carbonated mouthfeel, light-to-medium body; Light golden color; Off-white head settles to a sheen, with lots of delicate, but dense lacing
