Tap. Pours clear reddish amber, small off white head, some lacing. Aroma of caramel, light pine. Flavor is the same, light sweet, light bitter, light metal finish. Light body, creamy mouthfeel IrishBoy (4199) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 15, 2012
Draft at Anacapa. Nose is caramel, with hints of bubblegum and roast. Clear amber with a small beige head. Flavor is lightly bitter with some light caramel. Nice lightly bitter amber. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 14, 2012
A clear red/amber color with an off-white head. Malt forward amber ale with caramel, toffee, and toasted bread up front on the nose. Some mild hop aromas, mostly floral and citrus peel, maybe a hint of pine. The taste is also on the sweet side with toffee and bread providing most of the flavor. A hint of pine, some light citrus fruit and peel notes, and a mild bitterness on the finish. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Rich butterscotch and malt aroma and taste with a dry butter and bread finish. grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Light brown with reddish tinge, fine long-lasting head. Very malty, toasty aroma with light hops - nice. Full, slightly sweet malty flavor. Fairly bitter, lightly tannic finish, maybe a touch harsh in some way. Very toasty overall, about what I’d go for when brewing a red ale.

Aroma of floral hops over red berries. Appears a red amber color with a small white head and no noticeable effervescence. Flavor of biscuit malt with a nice hop bite - could use a bit more malt sweetness. Palate is light to medium-light and quite pleasant. Overall, a decent red ale.
