Everyone says this is the best Karl Strauss has to offer. Its a decent beer. Good color, malty sweet with a lasting finish. Pretty thin, not remarkable. For a lighter beer, I think the Amber Lager is a much better alternative.

Had this while waiting for a plane at LAX - perhaps the airport tap was watered down ro something, but I kind of got the impression other rates did, but much more sedated/watered down. Served in a pint glass with a thin head and a amber copper color. Not too much aroma perhaps the hint of hops and malt. A nice smooth feel going down with a malty flavor but nothing really jumping out at me. Again perhaps it was the setting and the beer was served fairly cool.

Poured a deep red amber color. Sweet malty aroma. I drank this brew after an endless summer light, so it had a little punch compaired to that.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 Pint draft at red lobster. Served as a caramel-reddish with almost no head. Aroma was almost non-existent (This glass was served way to cold, but even as I let it warm-up, little aroma emerged). Flavor is sweet with caramel, plums and raisins. Mouthfeel is medium-thin, with good prickly carbonation. Hops are well integrated and barely noticeable. Finish is short and dry. Overall this is a fair, session-able amber ale, but not a great one.

On tap at brewery. Very watery taste, not impressed at all, was hoping from tap would be better than bottle. Not great

light amber colour. small head, strong bitter aftertaste, I liked the aftertaste better than the beer itself which left something to be desired. That said it was nice to have a mirobrew at the San Diego Airport, kinda cool!

Draught. Served ice cold in a frosted glass... Red-brown with small yellowish rim. Malts, and very little else, seen the temperature. Roasted malts, some bitterness with slight retronasal sweetness, which continues growing warming up, pastry flavours. Medium bodied at best. Horrible presentation for a beer that isn’t all that great to start with...
