2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 Nothing very complex here. It pours a nutty brown color with a near non-existant off-white head. Has a roasted malt aroma. It’s got a smooth mouthfeel, solid malt flavors, sweet & roasted. Lots of carbonation with a crisp finish.

Definately amber with thin white head...aroma all malts, much like a brown...the only complex thing about this beer, is the hop bitterness first, then a caramel nutty finish, seemed sort of reversed to me...the sad thing is that this beer might really be "The most complex of their beer line-up"

2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber/brown color. Sparkling. Lasting, average, creamy, off-white head. Excellent lacing. Average malty flavors of molasses, toast, and meal. Earthy bacteria. Licorice and chalk flavors. Medium body and oily texture. Metallic, chalky finish. Salty too. Good color for an amber. Overall, a decent amber beer.

Sampled this beer at the Great Taste of the Midwest in Madison WI. I wasn’t a big fan of this beer, as it seemed tastless to me. However, that may be because it was one of the last beers I sampled.

I had this on tap in Broomfield, CO and then also from the bottle. Tap version was a bland and boring average amber. Bottle (from Ft. Collins) was well hopped - some pine, and a long bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy murky brown color with a thin off-white head. Very malty taste, sweet, with hints of caramel and toffee. Aroma was very sweet as well, malty and rich, with a almost nutty quality. This brew was so sweet it was almost unnatural in a beer, still not bad though.

Very dark for an amber ale, this beer is almost brown. It tastes a little like a brown ale as well. Not a bad beer (by Big Horn standards...), it has a decent flavor and a good balance between malt and hops.

This draft brew poured a small head of off-white colored finely sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a very good lace. The body was softly carbonated transparent amber brown colored. The aroma was a typical mild malt hop one with a slight "red" note to it. The mouth feel was smooth and almost flat with a minimal "red" bite. The flavor was malty and mild with amber hops noted.
