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 (38587) - 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 (27237) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 10, 2013

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 mcberko (19175) - 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. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
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. Ferris (16697) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2013
Draft - Malt forward and toasted grains. Clear amber with a creamy white head. Lots of grain with a slight malt sweetness. No bitterness at all. Classic amber. brokensail (16670) - 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.
