Carlsbad: Red-amber color with a small off white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Flavor starts sweet and malty followed by a light hop spicyness and a light dry finish. Smooth, creamy palate.

Malty sweetness w/ slight dark fruit and vinious notes on the nose... the same w/ a hint of pine / citrus on the mouth. This beer poured a rich reddish brown w/ gold highlights, slight head and good lacing. The mouthfeel was creamy and light. davidflores99 (225) - Signal HIll, California, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Had this on tap at Najas Place. This wasn’t bad at all, very typical amber ale I guess, went down nice and smooth........I think I got high drinking this hehe. Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 1, 2004

Light amber/orange beer with a white head. Sweet malty aroma with grassy tones. Flavor of pilsner malt with grassy tones and hops in the finish. Bland but drinkable.
(Draft: Pizza Port in Carlsbad, CA) A decent amber ale, but nothing I’m too excited by; From start to finish, the flavor is quite malty, moreso than your typical amber ale, with a moderate sweetness and a light honey flavor; Light hoppiness adds some balance, but this remains a sweet, malt dominated beer; Although this medium bodied beer is a little heavy from the sweet maltiness, a slightly sour flavor in the finish helps to clear the palate somewhat; The nose is sweet honey, lightly malty, and not much in the way of hops; This has your basic amber color; Off-white head slowly fades to a thin layer; A dense lacing droops down the sides of the glass like, well, 50-year old DD breasts; Where’s my mind today? unclebleen (620) - California, USA - JUL 8, 2004
Pours a gold/copper color with a small white head. Aroma is malty and grain in with a small hop profile. Flavor is malt and hops in good balance but the beer falls short in a way. It lacks the spicy complexity of other PP beers. Body is medium all around. Decent but nothing to write home about. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2004
Draught @ Pizza Port CarlsbadSickboy282 (1114) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 21, 2004
The beer pours clear amber with a portly off white head that is portly in size and frothy in texture, the resultant lace a fine coating upon the glass. Nose is sweet malt, crisp and clean, start is sweet and has a nice grain profile with the top middling in it feel. Finish has a pleasant acidic bite, the hops delectable in their spiciness, dry aftertaste a nice change of pace from those monster IPA’s I have been drinking.
Pours a golden amber with a decent white head. Aroma is a little odd, haven't smelled such an aroma. Bad aftertaste. boto (2250) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 17, 2004
Draught @ San Clemente Location: This one was a sort of coppery/amber color. It was fairly clear. There was not much head to it. The aroma was alright, with a hint of sweetness. The taste had an almost lager-like smoothness to it. It was sweet, with a decent hop bite in the aftertaste. Very Good!
