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.

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.

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.

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!

By no means a bad beer. While it doesn’t 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 it’s one of the better Strauss beers, but it’s not exceptional.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
OK nose .. cherry, berry, syrup, malt. Reddish amber pour. medium head. Medium body, with flavors of coffee, cherry, malt ... a bit too sweet. Oily on palate. A bit flat. Above average beer because of flavor and complexity, but a little weak on body/structure, and too sweet and caramel for me.
