"a little on the sweet side, surprising since the nose had a nice hoppy & malty mix. pretty good, but not great. would need a little more balance for that. worth trying, though."

AmEricanbrew (6008) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 4, 2008
Brilliant copper/red with a tight tan head. Sweet toasted caramel aroma. Medium body. Decent spicy toasted caramel flavors are easy on the palate. Not too bad.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 Aroma is sweet toffee and some dried fruit. Appearance is a darker red than what most would consider an amber ale. Flavor is toffee, fruit, some vanilla. It is exceptionally smooth and easy to drink, but this stuff gives me a wicked hangover for some reason. Good for an amber. More flavor than most.

Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla: Bronze color, nose of caramel and light fruity hops and strawberry. The flavor is lightly sweet and crisp with hops. Finishes creamy and light, meh.

Medium amber color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and a touch sweet. A medium bodied amber. Malts are nutty and a touch sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. There is a slightly harsh feel to the taste in this beer. Kind of a typical amber. Drinkable, but typical. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is harsh. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
