Amber colored and medium-bodied, this Vienna-style lager has a slight toasted/caramel malt taste with a mild hop finish. It's slow-brewed with bottom fermenting yeast and German hops.

Bottle. Friend brought this back from their trip to Colorado. Of the 3 dam beers they brought back, this was the worst. Poured a golden color with a smaller white head that went rather quick. Aroma was sweet malts, corn and metallic flavors. Very thin and watery body. Not a whole lot to this one. Some caramel flavor in the finish.

4 oz taster draft at the brew pub in Dillon, Colorado. The pour is a clear golden, with a smallish off white head. Aroma is not much, maybe a hint of sweet malt. Taste is lightly clean malt sweetness, some nice floral, even a touch of lemon in the back. Much more flavor than I was expecting from the soft nose. Palate is thin to medium, coats mouth a touch, the after taste lingers some. Overall a tasty Amber Lager.

Tap at brewery. Pours a copper appearance with an orange cream colored head. Plain amber malts in the nose. Slightly bitter flavor with medium amber malts. Like an ESB but less bitter. Not bad.

Bottle at ACBF. Pours a dark golden color. Pretty dark and malty for a lager, but not particularly flavorful.

I didn’t really care too much for the taste of this one but the appearance was pretty striking. It had brownish gold tints and an aroma of hops and barley. Pretty enjoyable, but nothing super.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Tasting at CBF. Clear golden, medium white head. Aroma of light malts and lighter floral hops. Flavor is smooth and easy, very drinkable but still has pretty good flavor. A fairly hoppy lager with a satisfying bitter finish.

RSRIZZO (1940) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Had at the All Colorado Beer Festival in Colorado Springs on 11/7/09. Color is a golden amber with average carbonation and a small head. Aroma is a mild malt scent. Starting with a bold light body it goes down with a light crisp feel. Finish is a light malt flavor backed by a faint bitterness. Overall its an clean easy brew to drink but its a little boring.

Bottle. Gold pour. Grainy and malty aroma and a surprisingly bitter flavor. Unpelasantly bitter actually. Not one I would go back for more.
