Copper orangeade, a thin ring of lace surrounded shy little head islands dancing in the center.
Almost a white wine acidic/fruity crispness in the nose, the hops eventually come out quite juicy, like sweet strawberries.
My first couple of sips didnt register much for me, carbonation was quite lively and it tasted pretty light, with a dry, if sudden finish. Very low hops. It did end up growing on me, enough to say that this is a pretty decent Beer that, granted, looks pretty pale next to the competiton at Pizza Port, but it would easily beat every other "Amber" ale Ive had at just about every other brewpub Ive been to in the States in a head-to-head tasting. At least this one smelled nice.

On tap at The Local in SD. Pours a light amber with a medium white head. Sweet floral aroma from the hops. medium caramel sweetness and a swell bitter citrus hop finish. Has a discernable tea flavor, but Im not getting any acetaldehyde mentioned by Bck Dich. Maybe my ADH activity isnt high enough?

Amber body with minimal white head. Hoppy aroma to start but moves into caramel notes. Flavour is fruity and herby with a nice bitterness to the finish.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 4, 2006
Draught at Pizza Port Carlsbad
Pellucid amber color, caramel. Thin head and lacing. Nose is light with some crystal malt, a bit of doughy malt and some light hops to balance. Definitely on the lighter hoppy scale. Light acedylhide in the flavor when really puffed. A mediocre amber ale with a lightly hoppy and sharp/dry finish.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2006
Tap @ Carlsbad from Dec 05. Coppery pour with some orange hints. Sweet malty flavors with a moderate body. A bit too sweet for a session beer for me.

Tap at San Clemente (Im guessing the rating belongs here, since its not listed under san clemente and the brewers are the same): Light copper color with tiny white head. Aroma has peach, apples, honey, malt. Flavor is fruity, crisp; dry finish with a touch of bitterness.
