Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla. Clear copper color with a ruddy hue. Toffee and subdued caramel aromas and flavors. Similar to the amber lager, but spicy and dry, lacking the buttery note. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Karl Strauss/Old Columbia Grill, San Diego. Nice looking red beer. No real head or lacing. Raspberry aroma - always a winner with me. Very clean and smooth thru the palate, syruppy in fact. Some concealed forest fruits flavouring and general juicy base. Nice stuff - one of the best Karl Strauss beers tried.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to Snojerk321. Pours a dark red with an offwhite head that goes quickly. Nose is bready and crystal malts, faint syrupy notes. Taste is better, much dryer than I expected with more of the sweet bready notes and a fruity hop character coming through with a touch of vanilla. Really, pretty decent for an amber.
