This had an average head.Color was a nice red-amber.Good biting dry aroma.This was a good tasting red,but it was more of an IPA to me.Not enough of the fruityness of a good red.It was tasty though

A decent amber. Slightly thick and sweet on the palate. Lots of malt character that is well balanced by the hops. I drink a lot of this at the airport every time I’m in town.

On tap at brewpub, Carlsbad, CA: Color is more brown than red with a beige colored head that mostly diminishes. Aroma of cheap cologne. Flavor was soapy with a bit of soggy maltiness. Disappointing.

Copper pour with a medium tan head, which quickly dissapates. Somewhat thin-bodied. Virtually flat and uncarbonated texture. Roasted caramel and toffee malt with a lighly creamy texture. Very light hints of a floral hopping highlight. Average.

Bought in an Exxon station in San Diego. Delicious, well done amber, superior for a local. Ripe tasting, hoppy, wet.

Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla. Clear copper color with a ruddy hue. Toffee and subdued caramel aromas and flavors. Similar to the amber lager, but spicy and dry, lacking the buttery note. Pretty good.

On the sweeter side, malty, creamy, caramel. Went down easy, but just not a favorite style to me. Tap at Universal

Poured a deep red amber color. Sweet malty aroma. I drank this brew after an endless summer light, so it had a little punch compaired to that.
