Pours ruby red from bottle. Amazing aroma..big hops and. sugars. Aroma does this beers justice, flavir is mice but loses something in way if hops a sweet malts.

Beautiful tones with decent head. Perfect blend of bitter and sweet. I will buy this beer again and again.

Bottle. Pours rather dark for an amber tinted ale. Think inconsistent lacing, strangely unattractive. Floral hops are actually more present in scent than the expected maltiness. Surprisingly steady bitter gulp, with a nice malt angle that reveals itself as the beer warms (especially in the finish.) An intriguing amber.

Has a malty aroma. A cloudy red/amber color. Has a light malty, somewhat bitter taste. Its pretty good. I have yet to be disappointed in a beer from Colorado. But yeah, I like it.

Good session beer. this and the esb are great for around the fire. both are very balanced with hops and have a good bitter finish. this has a malt character and a Dark copper color.

This is a very good but basic amber ale. not nearly enough hops or malts for me. it is very clean and simple with roasted malts and subtle hops.

Interesting caramel tasting beer. A little bitter, but smooth aftertaste. It is really good amber.

Aroma; light Pinappley American hop essence. Some maple syrup/malt. Taste; Carmel malt well balanced against toasty malt. Quite hoppy to a level that almost overpowers the malt= a good thing.

This beer is alright. It is too hoppy for me, reminds me of Sam Adams...which is also to hoppy.
