This is the first beer I had from karl strauss and the one that made me a fan. I enjoy that roasted malts and toffee like flavors with hints of dates and currants amazing beer. The first dark beer that I enjoyed.

Not the sort of beer I would normally drink, but I had heard good things and wanted to give it a try. A beautiful colour, with what I thought was dark caramel/brown sugar aroma. Much the same on the taste, caramel and toffee. A much lighter body than I was expecting. Not a bad beer for a change of pace, I could only drink one of these though, not sessionable in my opinion at all.

Very drinkable red ale. Good aroma, color and body. Enjoyed the beer a couple of minutes ago. Good caramel malt flavor.

This is a great red, full bodied ale. The beer doesnt taste like a full bodied beer because it is so easy to drink. Very smooth with a fruity like finish to it.

Strong fruity/caramel scent, and a taste that corresponded with it perfectly. Slightly syrupy and nearly free of hops. Flavor that lingered on the tongue. Very good example of a hopless red ale. Went great with pizza.

Yummy, beer pub pub beer. Bold and full with a slight sweetness that is perfect with your favorite pub sandwich and fries.

This red ale has great flavor, with a slight sweetness to it. It is a fuller body beer with a toasted malt flavor to it. I really enjoy the smooth finish. Had this with some bbq chicken and it was delicious!
