look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured a thin head on a clear, deep amber colored body.
The aroma has a strong caramel smell with a lemon note in the background.
The taste starts with caramel sweet and abruptly moves to a sharp lemon bitter flavor. It's on the sweet side overall.
The texture is crisp with soft edges and moderate carbonation.
It's not that great or interesting.

On tap at Steam Haus Gastropub in Corona, CA.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy bone head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and tea aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and caramel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells better than it tastes in my opinion.

Nothing exceptional about this (perhaps overly) sweet and mostly one dimensional amber. It has some decent roasted malt notes on the nose and to the taste, but any exceptional flavors that be packed in this ale disappear almost as soon as they start.

The new Manzanita Brewing Company on July 15, 2012. Draft into pint glass. Mahogany, reddish brown color. About one finger of head when I got it. Plenty of white, pillowy, bubbly lacing. Good retention, but not so much on the sides.

Smelled toffee, caramel, nutty, roasty and toast.

Tasted pretty close to the smell, toffee, caramel and nutty. Very smooth.

Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-below average carbonation. Smooth, abrupt finish.

Good beer overall. Very smooth.

Draft to stemmed tulip

@The Lions Share San Diego, CA

App- A very dark red amber with a very puffy 2 finger off white/tan head. A good amount of cling and lace on this one.

Smell- A very interesting mix to me. It's very similar to an amber with that sweetness and malt notes but like its a red/tan with a stout note behind it.

Taste- A nice bit of strong malts with a citrus juiciness and again that flavor profile lends itself to a stout flavor with roasted and cream filling out the layers

Mouth- A solid creamy medium body with a soft medium carbonation. A little bit of residual roasted notes.

Drink- Overall, not something I would come back to. I am moving away from Red Ales. Just not sold on that profile. This was above average but nothing to shake a stick at.

Not bad. Let the bottle warm a bit out of the cooler. Poured aggressively and got a very nice, large, foamy, frothy, fluffy, light tan head lasts quite a while and some lace. Color is a slightly hazy red amber with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is malt, hop, caramel, spice. Flavor is like aroma, fairly muted, but marked by slightly toasted malt sweetness, carbonic tang and the hop bitterness. Body and carbonation are decent. Finish is like flavor, had a very brief metallic note and a bit of alcohol warmth.

I believe that I got this bomber from Pappy's Market in Oceanside. Here we go, another one from Santee, and on to the beer:

Looks very dark amber wiht dark orange hues. Solid head and retention on top, whcih yields some whips of lacing. This is very unusual; it smells too much like a hefeweizen at first, then the nose goes into a direction that does not remind me much of a red ale. It's very yeasty and very lightly toasted, and I mean lightly. Burnt sugars. It doesn't smell awful, but it's so far away from a red ale. This will be tough to decide the final aroma score.

Perhaps the nose weirded me out too much, though it still doesn't taste much like a quality red ale. Barely toasty, more than a fair share of banana, bread crust, some cooked corn....oddly it's somewhat pleasing, but banana should stay far and away from a red ale. Maybe this should be re-labled as a dunkelweiss. A little burnt in the aftertaste. Body is okay, a little thin at time, though carbonation is fine.

This is just too strange for me.
