Not a huge fan of Ambers, not a huge fan of Karl Strauss. This one is just OK. Let's just say it's drinkable.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 Pours a nice clear amber color with a white head. Aroma of toasted nuts, sweet malt, and caramel. Flavor matches aroma, very low bitterness, sweet caramel malt with toasted nuts.

Red, malty, dark caramel flavor without being obnoxious. Sweetness under control. I thought the aroma was similar. Slightly nutty, mild bitterness.

Little in the way of aroma. A nice red color. Super malty flavor. Balanced and non descript.

chinchill (1756) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 3, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pour was fine red-brown color with excellent clarity and a semi-durable beige head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma: appealing mix of caramel and baked brown bread. Flavor: good but simple flavor. Excellent bitter/sweet balance. Feel: medium-light body wih crisp, near medium carbonation. O: well-crafted if not particularly exceptional Irish Red.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - JUN 27, 2014
22oz bottle - Nothing extraordinary about this beer, but nothing to complain about either. A solid of an amber ale as you’re gonna find. Aroma is a bit sweet, lightly nutty but very, very light. Flavor finds some spicy notes, light bitterness and sweetness to meld with the touch of spice. It has a bit of a mineral-like mouthfeel. Solid amber. Great price.

Karol (614) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 27, 2014
Tapped at Karl Strauss at the Universal Studios in Los Angeles. This was a malty malty malty beer. Aroma of sweet malts, fruits and some strawberry marmalade. Amber color, head vanished in no time but kept a tiny cover. Taste was again sweet malt plus some bitter dark fruits. Overall a tasty beer but too much malt due to its style for me.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Pours a finger of head on a clear dark colored body. The aroma is rich with caramel malt notes. The taste is toffee sweetness with a touch of bitterness to balance it out. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. It’s a nice and malty ale.

Strong fruity/caramel scent, and a taste that corresponded with it perfectly. Slightly syrupy and nearly free of hops. Flavor that lingered on the tongue. Very good example of a hopless red ale. Went great with pizza.
