Traditionally Crafted Legendary Ruby Beer.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Draught at Goat Hill Tavern, Costa Mesa CA. Brown with a smallish head, faint malty aroma. Although a drinkable, mostly malt brew, not really much going on for this other than being rare to find on draught in So Cal.

A clear red pint with a thick, lasting and red-tinged head. A sweet aroma and a similarly fruity taste with a hint of spice (ginger, perhaps?) I found it to be a little bit sickly.
