Deep red colour. Caramel aroma. Currant and Caramel flavor, sweet with little hop finish. Medium carbonation. A good red ale

Pours reddish orange. Mellow flavors and goes down smooth, nothing extraordinary but it’s refreshing!

A deep amber color with a lacing head barely noticeable on the surface. A Bitter edge right up front with a metallic taste. God...I hate metallic. A little malty in taste and aroma. Hated it.

It started off good, but as it is with all Karl Strauss beers, they start to taste like ass as they warm. Decent, but I would never buy it for myself

UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 One of my favorite amber ales. Kind of a cross between an alt and an ESB? Malty/grainy body is luscious, but not too heavy. Just enough hoppy bite to balance through the finish. Beautiful red ale.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - OCT 15, 2006
Draft at Marie Calanders. Suprisingly tastey, with enough toasty malts and hops to make me prefer this over a Sam Adams in places with limited variety. Flavors of Smoked Malts, Barley toast, honey with medium hoppieness. Finishes a bit sweet with hints of fruits. A bit overdone with the carbonation.

Pours almost a rose colour. Very smooth taste. Hits front of tongue. Not malty. Caramel taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This isn’t a bad trolley to be hit with, as it’s light enough to keep from squashing you flat. It tastes pretty good also, unlike that time when I was a kid and it was freezing outside and my brother told me the trolley pole tasted like caramel. At least I can taste the caramel in this one.

This had an average head.Color was a nice red-amber.Good biting dry aroma.This was a good tasting red,but it was more of an IPA to me.Not enough of the fruityness of a good red.It was tasty though
