COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most complex of our beer line-up with a combination of five different malts and four different hop varieties. Buttface has the broadest popular appeal of our beers. It has a high malt character and lack of evident hops. This surprises people because it is easy to drink, but has a higher alcohol content than what is perceived.

Growler. Pours a medium brown, slightly khaki head with good retention. Very fruity aroma, slight notes of the hops, definitely sweet smelling too. Really mellow flavor, good balance of hops and malt with hops dominating a wee bit, finishes quickly. Medium carbonation, a strange sensation that reminds me of cola, real light body and slightly slick texture.

Caramel, sweet and just slightly hoppy notes. Medium amber color with little head. Sour flavor, slides down fast with little aftertaste. Hints of coffee.

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Bottle served in glass - bottled at Big Horn #2, FC, CO. Pours nice clear copper in color with thin head. Aroma is pleasant but mostly indistinguishable, mildly sweet, maybe nutty; no hops noticable despite the write-up indicating 4 different varieties (apparently in very small quantities). Flavor is rather flat but not at all distasteful, with mild malt and nut tones and again no hops, that stays on the palate for a short amount of time making this a drinkable beer. Overall, in reviewing my score, I was surprised to see it tally up so low (2.8 originally) since it is very drinkable, but again there is nothing about this beer that stands out; I gave it an additional "overall" point for the easy drinkability. I would recommend this beer despite the low result especially for the casual beer drinker (not any of you crazy enough to rate beers online, but maybe some of your friends). Wife says, "Mmmm... good; I could drink that."

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.

OutHouseDilemma (70) - Crowley, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2005
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.

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.

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.
