COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the industrial business district in Greeley, Colorado. Just like our unique building the brewery calls home, this unique brown ale uses quality malted barley, imported hops, and pure yeast to make a subtle nutty taste to our traditional brown ale.

Nice dark amber pour with a thin head and moderate lacing. Nose is malt, chocolate and something skunky. Taste is malty and smooth. There is also something off about the taste. It’s almost like the sweetness that comes from rotting things. Mouthfeel was thin and the finish recapitulated the taste. Did not finish this one.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear and filtered, brown colored body with a finger-width, tan, creamy head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Interesting aroma of strawberry yogurt, roasty nuts, caramel, and citrusy hops. Not overly abundant, but decent. Flavor is a lightly sweetened caramel malt mixed with a sweet brown sugar up front before a slightly roasty nut comes in during the middle. A very light chocolate covered dark fruit comes in before this finishes with a slightly citrusy, caramel, light nutty bitterness that lingers for a decent length of time. Light body and smooth with a noticable carbonation. Overall, this was an interesting brown ale. It wasn’t anything explosive flavor-wise, but it was what I would classify as a "Standard" tasting brown. Nothing great, nothing bad, but solid. Kind of refreshing, actually.

Bottle pours brown with an inch beige head. Light malty aroma. Flavor is light toasty malt, a little brown sugar, with some buttery notes.

RSRIZZO (1850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Had at the Summit Brewfest & BBQ on 5/16/09. Color is a nice brown with good carbonation and a big tan head. Aroma is faint giving just a hint of malt. It starts with a lighter medium body that goes down with a very smooth feel. Finish is a mild malt flavor with an easy bitterness. After taste is clean. Its a nice little Brown but a bit too light for my taste.

(on tap at Summit Brewfest in Colorado Springs). Pours a clear brown color. Average balance of malt and hops in the aroma, with light citrus. Medium size offwhite head. Fair lacing. Soft carbonation and dry finish, which may have been from some issues with the CO2.

JaffaHawk23 (71) - Broomfield(via Iowa City), Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Decent aroma and very nice color make things promising but the overall taste and aftertaste leave much to be desired. Too many good micros in CO to try this again. Too watery and not enough overall flavor.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2008
Dark brown colored brew. Long lasting foam. In the nose, toasty and roast-like malts, with hints of brown sugar, butter and dark fruits, along with a touch of diacetyl. Not much malt depth or describable malt character in the flavor. Unfortunate off flavors (metal, cleaner) seem to steal the show. Decent, drinkable brew with potential.

BarliTruebeard (17) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2008
I purchased this directly from the brewery itself in Greeley. Had a wonderful combination of hops and nutty roasted malt aroma. Decent tan head on pour but quickly went away. Nice dark brown with scarlet overtones. Taste is just what I was hoping for. Rich malts, nutty, hint of chocolate malt. Good hop balance. Better than other local browns I’ve had. Would recommend to anyone.

This is an average but pleasantly drinkable brown ale from the cow town of Greeley CO.
