greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 2, 2014
On tap. Actually not as bad as overall ratings suggest. Pours a nice deep amber with red hues. Taste of roasted malts and caramel. Light and easy to drink. Very similar to an amber but sweeter and more rich.

"a little on the sweet side, surprising since the nose had a nice hoppy & malty mix. pretty good, but not great. would need a little more balance for that. worth trying, though."

9/11/14 tall, skinny pint glass at Nicky Rotten's, Coronado Island, San Diego, CA. Barely an aroma. No head. Deep red color. A fine, drinkable, session beer but very boring an non-descript. Barely roasted malt flavor. Next time pass and try something new. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
