Great red color. Good malty/hoppy/carmel flavor. Im very impressed. Leaves a good sensation on the palate. RE-RATE: After having a few of these, I have to say theres a level of fruitiness that wears on me. Im taking it down a bit.

Bought in an Exxon station in San Diego. Delicious, well done amber, superior for a local. Ripe tasting, hoppy, wet.

Aroma has hints of raisins, dates, and toffee. Color is deep copper, clear, decent head retention. Flavor is sweet up front with lots of toffee and dried fruit. Finishes with a lingering sweetness, but not cloying. This is an enjoyable red ale, and is a little less bitter than other versions of the style.

On tap at Wings and Things. I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. It tastes a little bit like Fat Tire.. only better. Dark red color, thin head. Great taste. Little bit sweet, slight bitterness. Carbonation seemed just right for this beer. Very well balanced. Give it a shot!

Yummy, beer pub pub beer. Bold and full with a slight sweetness that is perfect with your favorite pub sandwich and fries.

Bad a bottle at our hotel in San Diego. Pours a bright deep red, clear, with very small white head. Aroma of cherries, caramel, sweet sugars, plums, some other fruits. Flavor follows with big sweet cherries and fruits, sweet sweet caramel. Body is medium, with low medium carbonation, and extremely smooth going down. Nice sweet finish lingers on the palate. Thought this was a really good beer and went down incredibly easy. On the sweet side for the style but very pleasant.
