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

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.

Kurtos (123) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours a Bronze-Red colour. Aroma’s of mainly caramel and sultana’s. Taste. Definitely can taste the Caramel as others have stated, but also notice Black liquorice flavours along with a slight currant flavour, almost no hop flavours but it does finish with a slight bitterness. Palate. This is quite thick and a little syrupy in the mouth. Overall. This is a beer that delivers a nice sweetness, yet isn’t too sweet and has no off flavours. This beer would be very good with sticky date pudding and other desserts.

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.

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.

virtuosovii (103) - California, USA - FEB 13, 2010
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.
