Everyone says this is the best Karl Strauss has to offer. Its a decent beer. Good color, malty sweet with a lasting finish. Pretty thin, not remarkable. For a lighter beer, I think the Amber Lager is a much better alternative.

kseecs16 (1207) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Had this while waiting for a plane at LAX - perhaps the airport tap was watered down ro something, but I kind of got the impression other rates did, but much more sedated/watered down. Served in a pint glass with a thin head and a amber copper color. Not too much aroma perhaps the hint of hops and malt. A nice smooth feel going down with a malty flavor but nothing really jumping out at me. Again perhaps it was the setting and the beer was served fairly cool.

Poured a deep red amber color. Sweet malty aroma. I drank this brew after an endless summer light, so it had a little punch compaired to that.
