Oakes (11786) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2003
Bright orangey-amber. All crystal malt and bread crust. What more can I say - yawn.

presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2007
Brought by Tipsy to the tasting. Looks like a red ale. Almost no head. Almost no aroma. Some vanilla in the flavour. Lots of toast. Actuallly a touch better than expected.

BOLTZ7555 (2704) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Biscuit and mild sweetness...with a crimson body and extremely small head. Just wasn’t impressed by anything from this brewery...but the food was pretty damn good!!!

A pretty good little beer. Its really malty! Sweet and flavorful, smooth. Pale Ale with sweetness. Overall pretty good, dark fruit hints, malty and crisp.

BillKismet (3291) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Full amber appearance with a ring of head. Mild grain nose, stale hops, tannic notes. Simple caramelized grain flavor with some twangyness where the grains meet the stale hops. Falls flat.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2003
Pours a very nice red color with diminishing off white head. Almost no aroma to speak of. This is a very mild brew. Light caramel malt, no hops and a bland finish. Lively carbonation and I find myself searching for the "beer flavor" in this one. Is this a light beer? Not a bad quencher at all, although I would like more flavor.

Foxbush (1215) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2006
This is another beer tasted at the Karl Strauss Brewery and resturant in Carlsbad. It was not my favorite. There was a red color with modest head. The taste was of spices but some sweetness. They claim suble taste of dates and toffee. I could not confirm those flavors.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2007
Local consideration at Pizza Port Solena Beach. Some lace, some yeast noted, and some toasted malt. Not all that bad but this style is fairly commonplace and topped by many. Easy drink and beats a macro, not way out of a place in the incredible California beer landscape.

Airlifter (118) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - APR 12, 2007
Bottle in Marina Del Rey. Red-amber color with tall, tan head. Mild hoppy aroma. A bit soapy and a little bland, but not bad.
