Bought a 6-pack Tamuras $8.29
Smell of caramel
Amber color
Medium mouthfeel
Medium-high carbonation
Caramel malt taste, easy drinking but would have liked a bolder taste as this one is a little on the thin side
Overall a nice beer that I would drink again, but there are a lot more desirable beers at this price range that I would buy first.

On-tap served in a pint glass at Wishbeer, Bangkok.

It comes with a clear body and copper amber color with thick silky off-white head that stays with good retention before slowly sinking to a layer of everlasting effervescence atop and leaving plenty of sticky lacing patch and spot along the way.

In a nose, it is roasted, caramel, dough, grain, and biscuity sweet from malt. Hop is also there providing notes of earthy, leafty, and mild fruity.

The taste is led by roasted and toasted malt and closely followed by sweet and biscuity malt. Hop introduces itself through the palate with its mild fruitiness, some earthiness, and gentle bitter touch.

Medium body with rather low to moderate carbonation, the mouthfeel is semi-smooth with a dry finish.

Decent amber, very easy to drink but do not expect something special.

Your usual amber colored beer in the amber style. 1/2" white head. Aroma was that red malt and mossy vibe.

Taste hit its stride in the proper amount of toasting of a red/amber malt style, some c hops, but not abundant, bitterness is sturdy, minimal orange citrus hop mouthfeel to go with it.

Would recommend only for people who are big red ale fans, other than that, its an average beer for your average fan.

Poured a very pretty copper/Amber with a nice off white head. Aromas and flavors of toasted grain, biscuit, a hint of earthy dry leaves. Nice slightly creamy mouthfeel with a medium high level of carbonation. A nice little amber ale which is inexpensive.

12 oz bottle in Tamarindo, CR. Pours amber with tall, long lasting, fluffy, off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt, ripe fruit and hint of hops. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is caramel malt, herbal hops, cherries and some coffee. Finish is long and dry. Nice brew, I was surprised to find it in desperate place.
