AmEricanbrew (6377) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 4, 2008
Brilliant copper/red with a tight tan head. Sweet toasted caramel aroma. Medium body. Decent spicy toasted caramel flavors are easy on the palate. Not too bad.

nbutler11 (1267) - Rota, SPAIN - DEC 3, 2008
Pours a rich amber color from the tap with a creamy off-white head. Full of balanced notes of caramel, crisp hops, and malt. Would be great with chili.

DuffMan (8043) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2008
On tap pretty much everywhere we went in San Diego, but this rating comes from our extensive sit-down at The Local. Clear copper brown, earthy caramel aroma. Sweet caramel flavour profile, mild bitterness with a tea-leaf finish.

K8 (1) - Pittsburgh, USA - JUL 3, 2008 does not count
I had this for the first time in San Diego. I am not usually a fan of ale, but this immediately caught my attention. The first taste reminded me of a stout with a burned, warm flavor, but with a very clean finish. I wish they sold this one in PA.

BOLTZ7555 (2979) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Biscuit and mild sweetness...with a crimson body and extremely small head. Just wasn’t impressed by anything from this brewery...but the food was pretty damn good!!!

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 17, 2008
On tap at Universal City location. Aroma of currants, some alcohol, a bit of caramel and maybe some smoke or scotch. Pours with an off-white head with some lacing over an amber body. Taste is of soggy malts. Its too fizzy and a bit harsh.
