Draft at the Sheraton San Diego - Darkish amber in color. The beer may have been too cold, but it did not seem to have a strong/distinctive aroma. Not much going in the hop arena either. Decent maltiness. Not much going on here...

Copper, clear with a minimal off white head. Nose of caramel malts. Sweet, somewhat creamy with a tad of spice.

Not a very good beer at all. Your much better sticking with AleSmith and Stone beers. Malty, not very hoppy at all, did not enjoy the aftertaste.

Bright orangey-amber. All crystal malt and bread crust. What more can I say - yawn.

presario (4625) - 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 (2799) - 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 (3335) - 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.

9/11/14 tall, skinny pint glass at Nicky Rotten's, Coronado Island, San Diego, CA. Barely an aroma. No head. Deep red color. A fine, drinkable, session beer but very boring an non-descript. Barely roasted malt flavor. Next time pass and try something new. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
