A forever classic beer by KS. A must try for anyone new to SD. Nothing about the beer is spectacular, simply balanced and unassuming. Great blend of nutty malt flavors and subtle hops. Perfect color, average white head. Overall a tasty and balanced brew that would accompany most any occasion.

smashteroid (262) - Alabama, USA - JAN 30, 2008
served cold from tap. pours a nice amber, reddish color, with a good white head, and generous lacing. aroma is sweet, malty. flavor is pretty good, some hops but fairly mellow and easy to drink. it wasn’t a bad beer, but it was the best thing that they had on tap at the restaurant, so i gave it a shot.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Tap @ Carlsbad. Pours an amber color with a somewhat generous white head. Aroma is slight hop with grain and malt notes detectable as well. Taste is sweet malt with a crisp hop characteristic at the end. Pretty smooth, though overall uninspiring.

From the tap poured amber with a good amount of head. Flavor a bit harsh and lasting.

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.

on tap-pours a patchy off white head and copper/amber color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel, secondary citrus hops. Taste is medium malt-caramel, secondary citrus hops, nice-mellow beer. Soft carbonation.

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

glaze0101 (79) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 15, 2007
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!

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - DEC 14, 2007
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.

On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07. Medium to dark amber. Nice head. No aroma. Somewhat malty and sweet, though not cloying. Not much hop character. Ultra clean finish. Bland.
