COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for the 54 Colorado peaks which tower over 14,000 feet in elevation, our session beer is a spectacular copper hued beauty. The treatment of our water to simulate English hard water and the blending of several specialty malts and hops produce a delicate balance between aromatic maltiness and herbal hops.

Poured into a pint glass. A: Copper with quickly vanishing head and no lacing. S: Grains, earthy, hops predominate. Quite pleasant. T: Really crispy with a pleasant bitter aftertaste. Some astringency mixed with graininess. M: Carbonation is exciting, but it leaves me with a strange sensation that is similar to heartburn. D: Nice overall brew that doesnít get old.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Slightly hazy orange pour with a wispy white head. Nose is mostly bread with slight pine. Nice pine hop flavor with citrus, yeast, and a dry hoppy finish (but malt balanced). Noticeable carbonation. Good beer.

Bottle. Pours a slighly hazy pumpkin orange color with a small beige head. Aromas of caramel, toffee, slight citrus, and pine. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, and butter. Finish is roasty malt and some bitter pine. Pretty smooth and easy-drinking. Good.

Rockcrawler (197) - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA - MAY 16, 2010
12 Oz. Pours a hazed goldish copper with medium head that sticks to the side making good lacing. Aroma of bready or hay malts and herbal grassy hops. Flavor is really nice in this beer an escalating bitterness smooths into a calm sweeting from the malts. Finish is light and crisp with a nice bitter tone that clings to the palate. Overall a very decent easy drinking beer.

NOT bitter AT ALL. Iím not sure why they call this an ESB. However, the beer is good. Tastes like 50/50 pale ale and wheat beer. Light and very drinkable.

SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2010
A-Pours a hazy rusty shade of amber with a giant, thick, frothy, off-white head that seems to refuse to settle. When finally settled a thick collar is left behind along with plenty of lacing. S- Well I stuck my nose in the beer and still didnít pick up much. Very faint smell of sweet caramel malt. T- Good dose of herbal hops upfront. Malt backbone is weak in the beginning. Finish starts with a herbal hop/malt balance but gives way to a sweet bready caramel malt. Caramel malt lingers with a faint taste of herbal hops on the back of the palate. P- Body has medium to heavy thickness and medium carbonation. O- This is a decent and quite drinkable brew. I like my ESBís to be a little bit more complex-but I really donít find anything wrong with this brew. I will probably have this again in the future.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - APR 17, 2010
Pours a clear golden color. Moderate white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is light citrus hops and toasted bread. Flavor is biscuity, nicely balanced with a hint of caramel sweetness, spice and floral hops. Medium mouthfeel and nice clean finish. A very nice session beer.
