On tap at Colorado Boy Ridgeway poured a clear reddish amber with a lasting creamy ivory head. Aromad of caramel, earthiness and light fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, earthiness and light fruitiness with a smooth dry lingering earthy caramel finish.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2016 32 oz canned crowler. labeled as Irish red. Pours a nice looking amber brown color with a big beige head that has fair retention. The aroma features caramel and, well, just caramel. The taste was watered down caramel and minerals. The palate was thin and disappointing. Finished short and forgettable. overall: meh, second beer from this brewpub that has really let me down. not likely to try any more. Re-rate 8-31-16. Had the cask version of this on draught at the brewpub. It was considerably better than the crowlered version I had previously. The palate was sfull smooth and creamy. The taste was still malt dominant but their was an underlying spicy bitterness that worked quite well. This also paired exceptionally well with their pizza. Raising my score from 2.7 to 3.7

On tap in Denver for GABF 2012. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a medium white head. A sweet caramel and dusty nose. A thin brew with dusty leaves, caramel, some sweet malts. Decent.

alagnak (468) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Draft @ beaumont hotel in Ouray. Pitched as ’amber ale’. Nose is pretty thin, a little malt, a little toffee. Flavor is pretty watery, and a muddled mix of the malt and very little else. Finish is a dead ringer for the Biscotti cookies on United Airlines (not necessarily a bad thing, but pretty sweet and bready). Run of the mill.
