Pours with a redish brown hue with a white head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma is of dried fruit - mainly prunes and raisins, nuts. Flavor is malty, musky, and has a lot of toffee in the end note. Couldnt feel that much carbonation weirdly enough. Interesting tasting beer - i don’t like the muskiness and maltiness of it though.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2003
A deep amber color with a lacing head barely noticeable on the surface. A Bitter edge right up front with a metallic taste. God...I hate metallic. A little malty in taste and aroma. Hated it.

It started off good, but as it is with all Karl Strauss beers, they start to taste like ass as they warm. Decent, but I would never buy it for myself

Pours reddish orange. Mellow flavors and goes down smooth, nothing extraordinary but it’s refreshing!

UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 One of my favorite amber ales. Kind of a cross between an alt and an ESB? Malty/grainy body is luscious, but not too heavy. Just enough hoppy bite to balance through the finish. Beautiful red ale.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - OCT 15, 2006
Draft at Marie Calanders. Suprisingly tastey, with enough toasty malts and hops to make me prefer this over a Sam Adams in places with limited variety. Flavors of Smoked Malts, Barley toast, honey with medium hoppieness. Finishes a bit sweet with hints of fruits. A bit overdone with the carbonation.

Pours almost a rose colour. Very smooth taste. Hits front of tongue. Not malty. Caramel taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
