On tap at Wings and Things. I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. It tastes a little bit like Fat Tire.. only better. Dark red color, thin head. Great taste. Little bit sweet, slight bitterness. Carbonation seemed just right for this beer. Very well balanced. Give it a shot!

On tap at Universal city walk. Creamy off white head atop an amber bodied beer. Smells of lightly toasted malts with caramel and toffee.Tastes pretty much the same as the aromas and finishes with a slight sweetness coupled with a little bitterness.

Very drinkable. Great ruby/ deep burnt orange color. Very minimal head, but decent carbonation nonetheless. Slightly sweet upon first tasting. Something I could probably make a decent session out of.

By no means a bad beer. While it doesnít blow me away, it is highly drinkable, has a great red-like amber color and smells of toasty hops with a tiny hint of vanilla/caramel. I think itís one of the better Strauss beers, but itís not exceptional.

Amber color from the tap. Light sweet, malty aromas with some sweet throughout the finish and crisp on the palate. Lacked complexity but great choice at California Adventure!

Not much happening in this one. Good copper color, no head and not much finish. Cannot recommend.

light amber colour. small head, strong bitter aftertaste, I liked the aftertaste better than the beer itself which left something to be desired. That said it was nice to have a mirobrew at the San Diego Airport, kinda cool!

No head as it pours from the bottle, indicated low carbonation.
Lacks any bouquet but the Amber hue was different and its caramelized hop flavour flowed through nicely. Much like drinking pop corn. Iíd like to try this again, pulled off a tap though.
