Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass From: VONS in Normal Heights (San Diego, Calif.) Price: $13.97 for a summer variety 12-pack Purchased: March 30, 2013 Consumed: April 10, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a reddish brown nut color with 1-2 fingers of khaki tan head that dissipated almost right away. Minimal wet lacing on the side, poor retention on the top on the way down. Smelled very malty right from the beginning. Got dark fruits and malts full nuts, toast and caramel. Seemed to be some faint bitter notes in there late. Reminded me slightly of a Newcastle. Tasted a lot more bland than the smell. Still malty, but not as flavorful as the smell. Toast, nutty and faint caramel. Medium-to-light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Longer smooth finish. The definition of an average beer.

Mixed pack with 12oz. bottles. Dark with a red tinge and a white head. Minimal aroma, touches of malt ... carmel? Toast/bread and ctirus with a really nice (sweet?) finish. Very nice limited release. Gem of the mixed 12-pack.

Nice limited time offering from a solid brewery. Pours orange copper with a thick fluffy white head. Aroma is of malts, caramel, maybe some alcohol (not bad). Flavor: I enjoyed this one. Nice toasted malts, caramel, some mild smokiness. Long finish.

Dark reddish amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice malt Irish flavor. Decent amount of hops. Nice easy drinking Red Ale.

slight red colored brown ale - aroma of malt and fruit - complex flavors of bread and light citrus. finishes with bread and light malt. Good.
