Harsh and unpleasant. No roasted malt flavor. Sour and cloying. Overall, ugh.

Malty sweet up front (caramel) but the finish is like medicine. Unimpressive!

Originally, I loved this as my favorite Breck ale, but then I discovered stouts. I still find it to be a solid amber. I particularly enjoyed quaffing it at the original brewpub.

This was one of my favorite beers when I started into my beer-freakiness. Now, after sampling so many other beers, it pales in comparison, but is still a good beer. True amber with no head. Smooth and lightly carameled. There’s only bitterness on the exhale, but it’s undercut by a sweet finish.

"I think it is just repackaged Coors Light" that was the perception I had at the time. I still think it lacks flavor and the ambience that better amber ales possess though. I guess I was frustrated at not being able to find decent locally brewed beer while skiing last spring in colorado (i wasn’t looking in the right places).

Amber colored, faint bready/malty nose, smooth, drinkable, a little thin but good. I was pleasently suprised.

Amber looking with medium white head. I didn’t like the taste of this on any level.

My roommate and I had one of these in memory of Pat Tillman, a true American hero in every sense of the word. One of the best amber ales I've tried.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2004 I was liking what breckenridge brewery did with the taste of this amber ale. Very smoothe but a little thin. This is the beer my roomate adn I drank after the great pat tillman fell. What a hero he was and now i am proud to have him as my picture. I wish i can be half as american as him

Pours amber with a medium off white head. Light malt and hop aroma. The taste is very thin and disappointing. Not much there. Finishes dry.
