Not bad! Not bad at all. Had this on tap at the Macaroni Grill, and needless to say I was hopeful and skeptical at the same time. It turned out to be a very drinkable amber ale - subley hoppy, perfectly amber in color, and pleasantly sweet. There is a bit of an odd aftertaste as it warms, but it’s not very noticable. The one problem is that my two servings had next to zero head on them. Odd. But a very tasty beverage.

Draft at Islands. Amber pour. A mildly hoppy aroma, with caramel malt. Like a blend between an APA and an amber. Pretty bland malt.

light amber colour. small head, strong bitter aftertaste, I liked the aftertaste better than the beer itself which left something to be desired. That said it was nice to have a mirobrew at the San Diego Airport, kinda cool!

Thick white head on top of nice amber colors. Minimal aromas. About zero on the hoppy bitter side. Watery sweet caramel malt. Easy to drink lacking much character.

Draft, brewpub at LAX United terminal. Clear and dark amber-red with a small but lasting head. Sweet cereal and spice aroma. Flavor is toasted nut and spicy, tangy cereal grain. Light-medium body that is tingly and slightly dry. Pretty nice flavor.

I had this beer on tap at the brewhouse and loved it. The beer as smooth and fullbodied, it went well with the steak I had.

On tap at brewery. Very watery taste, not impressed at all, was hoping from tap would be better than bottle. Not great

UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 Pint draft at red lobster. Served as a caramel-reddish with almost no head. Aroma was almost non-existent (This glass was served way to cold, but even as I let it warm-up, little aroma emerged). Flavor is sweet with caramel, plums and raisins. Mouthfeel is medium-thin, with good prickly carbonation. Hops are well integrated and barely noticeable. Finish is short and dry. Overall this is a fair, session-able amber ale, but not a great one.
