Sampled at the Blarney Stone in Clairmont. A very nice amber ale that is packed full of hoppy and malty goodness. Really blows a lot of amber brews out of the water. Appearance is a nice dark red and flavor is smooth and hoppy. A quality brew.

not bad, not too great, very drinkable but lacks any further distinction, especially in the flavor department. Taste is just average.

Tmoney99 (10415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Draft sampler at brewpub downtown. Poured a clear reddish amber color with medium frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet toasted malt aroma. Medium body. Average sweet roasted malt flavor with a moderate smooth sweet finish of moderate duration.

Sammy (8359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2007
Local consideration at Pizza Port Solena Beach. Some lace, some yeast noted, and some toasted malt. Not all that bad but this style is fairly commonplace and topped by many. Easy drink and beats a macro, not way out of a place in the incredible California beer landscape.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2007
A clear deep copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of light caramel and a hint of citrus. The flavor was citrus over a caramel malt base with some fruits mixed in. Citrusy finish. Very light on the bitterness.

Had at Karl strauss after PP Str Ale fest, my pallet is dead so this seemed very lite with little mouth feel, Perfectly clear amber to red, slight roast malt flavor little hops. Refreshing but thats it. Will re-rate when in town and not continuing from a great fest

Ibrew2or3 (6768) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2006
On tap at Columbia Street brewery. Clear copper to red color with lasting off white head. Almost no aroma. Really tasty sweet malt flavor of caramel malts with some toffee notes. A bit of bitterness rounds out the flavor.

Draft at some restaurant on the beach in San Diego. Decent taste, nothing too exciting going on though.

I’m a native San Diegan and I seriously wanted to like this beer to honor my San Diego roots, however, it just didn’t have the flavor I expected from it.
