cafgen (68) - California, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Amber color with almost no head. Caramel aroma with a hint of hops. Taste is totally caramel. Tastes similar to the Alaskan Amber. Good, but to sweet for a beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Three 12 oz bottles after a day in the sun on 15th March 2014. Pours an amber red colour with non-staying head. Caramel malty sweetness dominate the brew in both the aroma and taste. My sweet tooth took to it straight away, hence three bottles from the six pack in one go. A little one dimensional maybe but I liked it.

Draft at the whiskey girl San Diego, red amber colour, very sweet nose and horribly malty. Tastes warm even at freezing temperature, not good at all!
