Draft at the brewpub in RB. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head. Tastes like sweet malt, faint hops and light bitterness, with some dark fruits. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like sweet and rich bready malt, dates and faint earthy hops.

Rex_Remes (158) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - MAR 12, 2015
OK nose .. cherry, berry, syrup, malt. Reddish amber pour. medium head. Medium body, with flavors of coffee, cherry, malt ... a bit too sweet. Oily on palate. A bit flat. Above average beer because of flavor and complexity, but a little weak on body/structure, and too sweet and caramel for me.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some grassy and herbal hops into a bit of spice, yeast, slight orange as well. Taste is a mix of orange, marmalade into a bit of red fruit, some slight grass, herbal, spicy hops into a big caramel note, finishing slightly bitter.

I drank a lot of this while in San Diego. Very good beer. One of my favorites. Wish I could find it out east. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
