madvike (2666) - 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.

Light red, Aroma is classic red malts. Taste is the same, with sickly sweetness finishing. Very drinkable but not necessarily a great one.

skmikeg (838) - Poway, California, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Pours a copper red with a small off white head. Aroma is of toasted sweet malts, toffee, caramel, and some light fruit notes. Flavor is similar with a lot of sweet malts, toasted bread, caramel, toffee, and raisins, and some light hops. Has a medium-light body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a semi dry, mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a slightly above average beer that is good for the style and is pretty sessionable.

Kurtos (95) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours a Bronze-Red colour. Aroma’s of mainly caramel and sultana’s. Taste. Definitely can taste the Caramel as others have stated, but also notice Black liquorice flavours along with a slight currant flavour, almost no hop flavours but it does finish with a slight bitterness. Palate. This is quite thick and a little syrupy in the mouth. Overall. This is a beer that delivers a nice sweetness, yet isn’t too sweet and has no off flavours. This beer would be very good with sticky date pudding and other desserts.
