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.

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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Amber colored, moderate head. Aroma is mildly hopped, but mostly grainy (sour, wet hay). Very watery, with very little flavor. Sweet malty flavor almost rears it's head, but is quickly squashed by the skunky grains. It's not repugnant, but it is not anything to go out of your way to try.
