2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled draught at Humperdinks, Dallas, Texas.
Dark amber. Fruity and roasty with a touch of soapy citrus fruits. Rather malty, but mellow. Syrupy, bitter finish.

Another basic boring ale from Big Horn. Reminded me of the old style Killian's. Not very bitter and very mild malty aftertaste. There is just nothing to it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty basic, hum-drum beer. A step up from the mainstream, but a dull offering intended for its sports-bar crowds. Decent amber/brown color, a bit of head, with extremely mild bitterness and hop notes. It is what it is and not much more. (on tap at Greenville Ave., Dallas location)

Westminster, CO location: Nutty maltiness. Just OK amount of hop aromas/flavors; very little bitterness. Thin body makes it painfully easy to quaff. A good session beer, but not a lot of personality.

Nice taste. They’re not lying about the alcohol content, either.

A pretty good Amber I had at their Indianapolis location. Nice flavors. Mabye a little light for my taste, but still pretty good.

I thought it was a fairly average brew, nothing spectacular. It was well balanced, had a nice color, and aroma, nothing to offend in this one.
