Sammy (8349) - 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.

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 26, 2007
On draft at Karl Strauss Universal City, 11/26/07. Medium to dark amber. Nice head. No aroma. Somewhat malty and sweet, though not cloying. Not much hop character. Ultra clean finish. Bland.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2003
Very dark auburn color. Light caramel and some fruit in the nose; some hops in there as well. The body is caramel sweet with just touch of hops towards the end.

HistoryGeek (17) - California, USA - OCT 23, 2006
I’m a native San Diegan and I seriously wanted to like this beer to honor my San Diego roots, however, it just didn’t have the flavor I expected from it.

Rustyham (1717) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2010
aroma is meaty and caramel. Appearance= is super fizzy, dirty brown cola color. Flavor is of olives, light malt, slight smoke. Kind of nasty- couldn’t finish it. Bought at the Hotel front desk.

madvike (2657) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2013
On tap at the Costa Mesa brewpub - Pours reddish amber with next to no head. Nose is nutty light malt, syrupy and a bit sweet. Tastes like a macro lager with a bit more malt Sharp and sweet--real harsh. Slick and sticky with a light body.

renffisch (757) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Draft at the whiskey girl San Diego, red amber colour, very sweet nose and horribly malty. Tastes warm even at freezing temperature, not good at all!

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAR 2, 2008
Had on tap at LAX airport. Pours amber with a creamy head. Smells of sweet malt, tootsie pop, and a little nutty. Taste is same, all malt, little hops, caramel. Just another beer.
