My roommate’s parents brought this back from COlorado for us. This is a beer of stark contrasts. THe cloudy yellow appearance is extremely promising, but then the nose is weak like cardboard. The flavour is better than the smell would lead you to believe with a moderate hoppiness. Not great, but it has a little bit of flavour.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Big fluffy head, but the color is yellow as can be. Aroma is an off sweetness. Light bodied. Very low-quality taste of cheap malts and very little hops. Drinkable only because the sweetness is trying to hide all the other bad elements.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Good golden color,small white head that faded fast but left behind a bit of lace.Nice light malt and maybe some apricot aroma along with a fairly sweet showing coming through and some mild hops.The flavor is light malt some hops and a slight fruity side of citrus giving it a mild grapefruit side.Not a bad brew but still fairly light with just the hops being the main attraction here,and it’s a short movie.It’s worth trying once but little more beyond that.

Tasted in Colorado (Denver). Tasted at Rock Bottom. Appearance is agolden yellow colour, clear with evident carbonation and a thin white head. Aroma was grainy, grassy and malty. The flavour was biased on the hoppy side with a slight floral finish.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - JUL 10, 2004
Clear golden appearance, good head formation. Lemony citrus and grain aroma. Light in body, a touch of honey, lemony citrus in the finish with a moderately bitter bite. Fairly bold for this usually simple style.

3fourths (7799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Bottle from Rockies Brewing Company - Clear light orange, light grain aroma with some lemon, but the flavor is just pure grain... some sour grass or wheat as well. Another cookie cutter that does nothing.

hotstuff (3953) - Indiana, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Bottle. This beer formed a small sized white head with fine-medium sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. The body was transparent and carbonated with a golden hue. The nose was malty and grassy. The flavor was sweet tasting and thin. The mouthfeel was watery and thin. The lacing was fair. This beer definitely lacks any real flavor as it was bland, flat and very boring. Not recommended.

thedm (4887) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 5, 2004
This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of white colored long lasting foamy finely sized bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was a softly carbonated transparent orange color. The aroma was musty and malty. The mouth feel is smooth somewhat flat and finished with a mild orange aftertaste. The flavor is malty slightly acidic doughy and oh so slightly spicy.

This appears to be this joints signature beer. I was not impressed. It was middle of the road in all categories.
