A very nice red. Pours a dark amber color, with a small among of tan head. Smells great, lots of vanilla. Taste is similar, refreshing, not too hoppy, fruit and vanilla. One of the better reds I've had. Had at tap at the Bay Area Craft Beer Festival ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

halfbaked (47) - - APR 20, 2013
From the bottle, pours a red/brown with little head. Aroma is understated sweetness. Flavour is of flat malt, a little caramel. It’s a basic beer, I think it lacks complexity. Bland...

Kroney (150) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pours reddish copper. Aroma is surprisingly bitter forward with the malt being the secondary and last thing you smell. Taste is a complete 180 -- all malt sweetness and very muted overall flavor. Decent session beer.

madvike (2658) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2013
On tap at the Costa Mesa brewpub - Pours reddish amber with next to no head. Nose is nutty light malt, syrupy and a bit sweet. Tastes like a macro lager with a bit more malt Sharp and sweet--real harsh. Slick and sticky with a light body.
