Pretty color, fair head. Fairly sweet for an ale. Not bad, not great. Enjoyable, but nothing super special

cafgen (138) - California, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Amber color with almost no head. Caramel aroma with a hint of hops. Taste is totally caramel. Tastes similar to the Alaskan Amber. Good, but to sweet for a beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

SD trip, Karl Strauss LaJolla, sampler, had these while having a larger DIPA, flavors and ratings may be rough: Reddish brown; weak nose and even weaker flavor, really bland.

Crystal clear amber to red. Very little aroma. Very light flavor with a crisp burnt type of flavor/ Smooth finish. A fair beer

Chadski4 (119) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 21, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 Great aroma which leads to a "serviceable" sweet, taste. Would continue to buy if nothing else on the shelf caught my attention.

dprior (118) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 19, 2002
Great red color. Good malty/hoppy/carmel flavor. I’m very impressed. Leaves a good sensation on the palate. RE-RATE: After having a few of these, I have to say there’s a level of fruitiness that wears on me. I’m taking it down a bit.

Airlifter (118) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - APR 12, 2007
Bottle in Marina Del Rey. Red-amber color with tall, tan head. Mild hoppy aroma. A bit soapy and a little bland, but not bad.

You ever have Leinies Red...I think its the same stuff. Almost lager like it is red clear and and fizzy. Semi sweet and some caramelly flavors. slight bitter end
