Beaver (1404) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2004
The Singletrack pours an orange-copper color (surprise!) with a kind of fizzy off-white head that had decent retention and some lacing.

It aroma is very sweet smalt, almost cloying and kind of reminiscent of of mass produced crap but with a slightly spicy, toasted caramel note.

Itís taste is a lot of sweet, starchy malt up front with a subtle spicy, hop bite at the finish. As it warms, some toasted malt and toffee comes out, and the bitter finish becomes a little more pronounced. It has a thin, watery body.

Overall, I could see this as a good transition beer, or something to drink if there was nothing better available. It kind of reminds me of a beefed up Dos Equis Amber. Itís too sweet for me.

Terminus (3316) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUN 29, 2004
bottle-pours an orange hue with small white head. mild carbonation. Malty sweet aroma slight citrus with some earthy hops as well. Flavors are similar, just not as strong. all the flavor up front with no finish. boring and unbalanced. Very biting bitterness also, which was not good. This tastes more like an ESB than an Amber.

Orange Coloring...little hops....nothing that wonderful, but not a bad beer altogether.

3fourths (8457) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Bottle from Rockies Brewing Company. Clear orange appearance, sweet nose full of malts with some orange, wood, nuts, and grape aromas. Very clean and crisp malt flavor, a little grainy, with a sweet orange and bread overriding flavor. Certinaly not bad, but nothing special.

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2004
Nice bitterness, medium hop aroma with a hoppy aftertaste. It's a bitter by style. Nice light beer but nothing special. Some people didn't seem to like it, maybe they had bad bottles, I can't find a date anywhere on it.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2004
Amber colour (surprise) with a creamy off-white head. Caramel/toffee malt aroma with some cookie dough as well. Flavour shows good balance of malt and hops. Slightly citrus hoppiness. I liked it.

Good sweet hop aroma. Tan copper color, small head. Sweet, nice and malty profile. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Nuffield (3747) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2004
I was really unhappy with this beer. I was suspicious from the start because, as others have noted, the label is so lame. I guess the color is basically copper in color; I didn't get much of a head. The aroma was vegetal, malty, and metallic, and the flavor had a notable bitterness, even astringency. The effect is not unlike what you get in German lagers with Hallertau or Saaz. Some later flavors suggest to me that this is a poor quality English bitter, but ultimately the caramel can't overcome the nasty effect that I get from the hops. The palate is plain and unassuming. I wanted to dump it out after a few sips but I struggled on to finish it.

the smell is mainly of hops; the color is medium amber and the head is very thin; hops dominate the taste, but there is a touch of malt
