served cold from tap. pours a nice amber, reddish color, with a good white head, and generous lacing. aroma is sweet, malty. flavor is pretty good, some hops but fairly mellow and easy to drink. it wasn’t a bad beer, but it was the best thing that they had on tap at the restaurant, so i gave it a shot.

On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07. Medium to dark amber. Nice head. No aroma. Somewhat malty and sweet, though not cloying. Not much hop character. Ultra clean finish. Bland.

grimreaperguru (245) - santee, California, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Pours a copperish red color with a short lived off white soapy head.The aroma is a mix of pine hops and roster malt.The taste was bitter and metallic.The body was thin with a nasty metallic aftertaste.Just not a good beer.

I’ll have to be generous on this one given the tasting circumstances. Poured from a truck-side tap in Disneyland (California Adventures Park) into a green plastic cup and costing almost eight dollars. Difficult to discern the color through the neon yellow cup but i assume it was red and clear, no head present. Aroma was pleasant caramel and dried dark red fruits. Minimal hop bite, caramel and light fruit dominates to flavor. Body is relatively light with carbonation that is soft and smoothly effervescent. I’ll have to try this again in the proper glassware.

Bottle. Deep red brown pour, dissipating off-white head. Malty, watery, something almost metallic in the aftertaste. Not much on the nose, however. Medium (barely) body. It’s okay.

achtungpv (227) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Flat muddy mouth feel. Not a ton of flavor but nothing unpleasant. It’s a perfectly acceptable beer but I wouldn’t seek it out again.

Dashimus (226) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear red/light brown with a minimal head. Aroma is malt, raisins, caramel. Slight hint of hops. Not complex at all. Taste is medium sweet with a slight earthiness. Light to medium bodied. Low carbonation.

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