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.

This is one top notch and tasty brew. Dark copper color, a small skin of head, streaky lacing. Caramel, malt with a light hop accent. Mildly sweet with a hint of stinging bitterness. Really, really enjoyable.

With a bold amber color, it gives off fresh, crisp, roasted toffee malt, with the subtle spice and hops that weaves nicely within the malt. It is very balanced overall. It does get a bit too hoppy in the aftertaste, but it disappears back in a balanced state before you know it’s there. Has a very nice mouthfeel that fits the style and makes for a perfect substitute for a typical lager. Overall, a fantastically made red ale that pushes close to the "too hoppy" territory, but done right so even the malt-forward people can enjoy it!

I can't say anything bad about this one. It's a amazing "in-between" beer style. A little dark version, not too malty and not too light. Smells so good and taste like it.

A decent amber, though nothing special. Has a nice, smooth finish. A nice refreshing beer.
