L: Poured from a can to a pint glass. Had an amber color and a somewhat hazy consistency. There was an inch of off white, foamy, fairly long-lasting head head. Average lacing.

S: A so-so aroma of hops, toasted malt, and some caramel as well. Not an overly powerful smell.

T: Tasted of a fair amount of toasted malt, light caramel notes, a grassy quality, a bit of hops (not enough in my opinion), and a tinge of citrus (lemon). The problem with the taste is the same as with the aroma: It's simply too bland and underwhelming. Overall, this is a pretty watery, uninspired taste.

F: A good amount of carbonation with a slightly thin finish. Light- to medium-bodied.

O: Not a particularly memorable beer. Could have been better.

On tap at Big Wok Mongolian Grill on 09/06/16. A malty red ale. Light texture and rather bland flavor.

Bought 12oz from Marukai $3.99
Clear amber color
Low carbonation
Slight malt smell
Light malt taste, kind of reminds me of a flat cola
Nothing to make it memorable. Would not buy again.

A delightfully good beer. A tad bitter or tart which made it very delicious.

Smooth beer, it went down well. I loved the taste as well, there was a fruity taste to it. Also, it wasn't as carbonated as I was expecting.

Picked up a 330ml bottle from a local Asian grocery store and poured into a glass.
Pours with a decent amount of tan colored head. The head dissipates quickly, leaving a light lacing on top.
Nice red color, no noticable haze.
Fair amount of bubbles risingup the glass

Has a sweet caramel aroma with toasted malt.

Thin to medium body with light carbonation.

Tastes sweet with a bit of roasted malt bitterness. Lots of malt flavor. Not much hop presence in the flavor or aroma.
I notice a little tartness and a hint of metallic flavor.
