Dark amber, some head with decent lacing. Served way too cold.After it warmed some flavor was malty with a light hop finish. Average amber.

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

Draft in Alrington, TX
This was one of the best brews of the night out of the 8 beers I tried. Really has no new taste that grabs me, tastes like most ambers.

Nice beer I had at alefort in Boise Idaho
aroma- caramel with toast
appearance- Red or ’amber’ in color.
taste- classic amber beer. Little salt on this beer.
palate- smooth with a little co2.
overall I have liked this beer for sometime. I have been grabbing growlers for years at the two locations here in town. Thanks for contributing to boise’s beer

Good overall color and head. Average aroma. More a classic Amber than a Red Ale, more malt than hops. Still balanced and roasty. Good with a Steak and Mushrooms. One of the Brewery’s two best for me.

I had this brew at Tir Na Nog in Seattle - it’s the best of the three brews that they do themselves (Tir Na Nog is one of Ram’s pubs) It has a wonderful almost fruity aroma and a strong taste.

On tap at C.B. Potts, Broomfield CO. Poors a light amber, and has a mild sweet taste to it. Smooth finish.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at C.B & Potts Highlands Ranch. First of all, it was served in a frosty mug, second, the beer was ice cold. I was told it was the best beer they had, @%#$!# it wasn’t. I did not have my rate sheets on me but I fail to imagine why I would have even bothered to rate this beer but I still feel the need to post. This was a clear copper color. Aroma was almost non existent but maybe it is because the beer was served near freezing. Taste was a bit watery but I might have been able to make out the toasty caramel that everyone else seemed to have gotten. Really there seemed to be nothing to this beer and I was bored with it.
It got even worse past the frosty mug incident. I asked for another and the waitress opinion. She told me I should order the Hefeweizen, pronounced “heffer wisen” or the special, an Oktoberfest so I did, again, not that good and this time it came in a frosted shaker? What’s going, I thought I was in a brewpub. I returned the beer and asked for the check. I don’t think I will go back to a C.B. & Potts, at least not for the beer. Doubt I will be looking to try another of the Big Horn Brewing Companies beers anytime soon.
