From tap at Pizza Port in Solana Beach. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a small white head. Light roasted and caramelish malt aroma. Sweet caramelish and light toasted malt flavoured. Good light bitterness to this. Ends with a light creamy impression and a lasting light dry hoppy and light malty mix. Ungstrup (37309) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2005
An amber beer with an off-white head. The aroma is acidic and dominated by caramel - and so is the flavor. It lacks the berry notes I expect from an Irish Red. anders37 (26227) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2013
Draft @the brewery. Pours an amber color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty caramel aroma with weak hoppy hints. Fruity malty caramel hoppy flavor. has a fruity malty caramel finish. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2009
On tap. Clear amber golden with an off-white head leaving laces. Sweet caramel aroma. Medium body, sweet caramel notes, but again distinct moldy accents. No bitterness. I wonder if Pizza Port Solana has a problem with keeping their tap lines clean - this was the third mildewy beer in the same day. 080709 Travlr (24307) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2015

Draught at the brewpub in Alpine. Clear amber/mahogany beer with a decent offwhite/beige head. Malty berries aroma, roasted, grainy, hay, caramel, fruity notes. Fruity flavor, berries, caramel, hay, floral, raisins, some biscuits and bread. Decent. mcberko (17205) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap at Alpine, pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of stone fruits, earth and dry caramel malts. Flavour brings out red fruits, earthy notes, and some dry floral hops. Nice and dry, with a fruity, earthy body. Solid stuff. brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 15, 2010
A: The pour is a pretty interesting color. Deep, dark red, perhaps garnet with a thin off-white head.
S: The nose is pretty bland, unfortunately. Maybe some toffee and caramel, a hint of cacao. No hops to be seen, which is odd for an Alpine beer.
T: The flavor is a little bit better, but not by much. Some toffee, bread, toasted malt, and some molasses. A light bitterness and some burnt sugar.
M: The mouthfeel is decent: medium body and carbonation.
D: One of the few Alpine beers that is just plain bland. At least the bad fruit flavored ones have a strong flavor to them. bhensonb (15094) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Bottle from South Bay Drug. Rich red color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is floral hop and? Rather thin body with mild carbonation. Flavor is almost flavored water - but it is really better than that. It’s just all rather mild. Mild caramel, mild hop. It goes down readily. It finishes clean and balanced. It just lacks character. Good drink, but not a great drink. The color is great though.
