NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Bottle thanks to Snojerk321. Pours a dark red with an offwhite head that goes quickly. Nose is bready and crystal malts, faint syrupy notes. Taste is better, much dryer than I expected with more of the sweet bready notes and a fruity hop character coming through with a touch of vanilla. Really, pretty decent for an amber.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - APR 10, 2009
A nice sweet, hoppy and refreshing amber. Not great, but not cloying in sweetness. A good pizza beer - but goes well with seafood too. Bready and yeasty.

Pint – Disneyland California Adventure – Anaheim, CA
This was cold and wet and what I needed. It had been a few dry days. The beer was malty with a decent amount of hops but the beer was buttery and sort of flat. I was not happy with paying 7 bucks for a pint.

This is the first beer I had from karl strauss and the one that made me a fan. I enjoy that roasted malts and toffee like flavors with hints of dates and currants amazing beer. The first dark beer that I enjoyed.

This is a great red, full bodied ale. The beer doesnt taste like a full bodied beer because it is so easy to drink. Very smooth with a fruity like finish to it.

This red ale has great flavor, with a slight sweetness to it. It is a fuller body beer with a toasted malt flavor to it. I really enjoy the smooth finish. Had this with some bbq chicken and it was delicious!
