Bottle. Pours copper with a thin head that dissipates to a ring. Aromas of sweet malt and slight spice. Flavors of sweet malt, slight fruit. Finishes with a bit of citrus. No real hop presence. Thin mouthfeel. Not a very good beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Session like lean and watery. Light toffee malts, no hops, cloudy very spritz like carbonation. No bad finish but no real finish either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into a glass mug. An aggressive pour produced a moderate lingering one-finger white head. Dissipates after a minute or two. Mostly clear, great carbonation, and a beautiful amber/copper color. Nose is pleasant and rich-- lots of malts, some caramel, some toast. Sweet. The of nose that just draws you into taking a drink. Medium bodied, bordering on creamy. Taste is a good balance better bitter and sweet. Starts out more bitter, fades to sweet, then leaves a bit of lingering bitterness. Caramel and bread. A very drinkable beer, overall. Definitely subtle. Nothing going on that wows me, but very enjoyable nonetheless. Great with the potato hash I am eating.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 Draft at Tavern On The Bend on April 10, 2015. Dark amber hue, good malty nose with sweetness not overdone, somewhat thin body, tasty sweet malty flavor with enough bitterness to keep things balanced. Nice sessionable brew. The low overall marks must be because Breckenridge lacks beer snob appeal. As always, I don’t give a rat’s ass about shit like that.

Bottle to shaker glass, Pours clear amber, quick head, no real lace or retention. Aroma of nuts and caramel. Taste is sweet. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes dry but sweet. Tasting notes of grass, nuts, caramel and a little pine. Very plain and uninspired.
