On tap. Clear orangey brown with an off-white head. Sweetish and lightly burned caramel nose. Quite full-bodied with a solid malt base and some caramel accents. No real bitterness. Pleasant alright. 070709

Doesn’t have the bite that I appreciate from a good red ale, but it does have a ton of caramel malts in it. Tastes something like a liquid werther’s original, with some hop bitterness. A bit unbalanced, but still tasty.

Barreras (1568) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Pours a red/brown color. Taste is creamy for a red ale but is good. A hint of caramel can be tasted. Not as bitter as I expected. Overall a good beer.

Ungstrup (34634) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
Draft at the Carlsbad location. A slightly hazy amber beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of fruit. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of caramel as well as medium nots of malt and straw, leading to a bitter finish. 17 IBU’s.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - 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.
