Our signature beer and our best seller, this beer has started more meals and conversations than any other at the Brewing Company! This red ale is a well-balanced beer, not too sweet and not too hoppy with a beautiful copper color and an extremely smooth finish.

BucannonXC5 (1436) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 22, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a tap into a pint glass at the San Diego Brewing Company. Color was reddish brown with about an inch of head. Plenty of film left over. Smelled dark brown, light nutty. Reddish. Fairly average and non-descript. Tasted malty with some caramel in there. Nutty. Overall better than the smell. Fairly good aftertaste. It was consistent throughout. Probably average on the carbonation. Decent mouth feel.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 19, 2010
A: The pour is the standard color for the style: amber. The head is slightly off-white and is a bit creamy in texture. S: A pretty decent nose on this beer, actually. Creamy caramel sweetness with a bit of toasted malt and burnt marshmallows. T: There is a slight buttery quality to the flavor which is a bit off-putting, but otherwise not too bad. A mildly toasty note with the rest of the taste being made up of some semi-sweet caramel. M: Pretty average in terms of mouthfeel: medium body and in terms of carbonation. D: Easy enough to drink, but not outstanding in anyway. Your typical brewpub offering, here.
