Bottle from Dan Murphy’s. Malty, nice. Aromas of caramel, nuts. Taste is sweet, with average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a disappearing head.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 One of my favorite amber ales. Kind of a cross between an alt and an ESB? Malty/grainy body is luscious, but not too heavy. Just enough hoppy bite to balance through the finish. Beautiful red ale.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2008
On tap for $8 at San Diego Airport. Served in a 20-ounce plastic cup. Poured a deep, dark mahogany-chestnut body with a frothy white head. Great looking. Caramel, sweet, bready, creamy English biscuit flavor. Finished smooth and full-bodied. A very nice beer.

Had it at Karl Strauss La Jolla. I thought it was pretty decent, it was sort of sweet with a lingering taste of dates.

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

On tap at Karl Strauss in Universal City Walk Hollywood. Pours a clear, medium brown color with creamy, off-white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with malts. Taste is very good for its style. Slightly sweet and delicious.

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.

Bought in an Exxon station in San Diego. Delicious, well done amber, superior for a local. Ripe tasting, hoppy, wet.

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!

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