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.

gorditoabd (629) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Bottle, from the gas station. Aroma is of malt and faint honey. Mouthfeel is light, high carbonation, light bitterness, well balanced by the sweet honey and cinnamon flavors, before a solid bitter finish. Cinnamon notes are particularly pleasant in this beer. Not bad, for an amber.

Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - APR 12, 2012
Reddish amber. Nutty aromatics. Medium bodied, straightforward red ale. Nutty malts, but somewhat thin. Could use more hops to create some complexity. Medium finish.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Amber colored pour with little to no head. Malty, caramel aroma with a caramel toffee finish. This was ok.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 15, 2007
Not a terrible beer...def worth a try. Very smooth, rich, nice on the palate...caramel/toffee flavor. Deep mahagony appearance... nothing too special though. Is definately one of their best offerings. Would be nice with a burger or in the sun

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear lightly hazy amber ruby with small off white head. Chalky malty floral aromas. Toffee, biscuit, sickly sweet malts, jelly, grapes, currants and floral aromas. Medium body, medium carbonation - a touch dry, but sickly sweet tofee and artificial sweetness through the finish with an ongoing floral hop character.

allfreej (554) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 13, 2009
On tap, Karl Strauss at the San Diego Airport. Dark copper pour, with ruby highlights. Light tan head, with fair amount of lace. Not much of a nose, but what there is of it is malty. Malty flavor, caramel, nice body, mild finish. Very refreshing.

wheresyourball (553) - El Cajon, California, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear red with a minimal head. Nose is malt, caramel, hops. Taste follows and is quite simple. Amazing that a few years ago, I loved this beer.
