3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The beer pours a light amber color with a small off-white head.
S: Smells a bit buttery. There is some sweet bread and toffee, but very minimal hop character. A light fruit ester quality to go with the rather bland malt and hop character. A touch of pine and definitely a bit of grass.
T: Some grass and straw, and a hint of pine. The bready malt flavor combines with a light toffee note to provide some sweetness.
M: Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: Another sub-par offering at the Boulder Beer Tap House.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crystal clear, amber ale with a large, frothy, white head. Decent retention; excellent lacing.
Caramel, maple syrup, bubble gum, floral hops and butterscotch in the aroma.
The flavor is malty and chewy up front. Decently balanced with lightly bitter hops on the backside. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.
Short, bitter-sweet, dry finish. I'll go against the grain and say "I really like this one."

Clear dark golden pour. Average white head. Aromas of malt and hops wtih some sweet tones in the nose. Flavor is nondescript and pretty boring. Malty and a tiny bit of malt.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice little beer with a light copper colour and a minimum head, but lace leaves its sign of freshness, and enormous spider webbing. No aroma, yet the hop is assuredly there without being overwhelming. A bit less than average mouthfeel. Drinkable, and sessionable.

Tap @ Boulder Beer DIA. Burnt orange appearance with a cream colored head. Mild earthy hoppy, caramel malty nose thatís not too potent. Dull earthy hoppy, not very exciting caramel malty flavor. More boring than I remembered.
