RSRIZZO (1853) - 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.

Light amber and a small head, almost no head. Musky and earthy hops in the nose. Sweetly malty flavors. Hops are bitter and fruity. Citrus in the tail.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Thin head, dark clear golden body. Light malty and mineral aroma. Excellent balance between sweet malts and tangy hop bitterness. Light mouthfeel, but not at all watery. Drying finish, clean. Well made beer.

bleeng (1523) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2009
12 oz bottle purchased from the brewery. No freshness or ABV markings. Bronze/light gold color-very little head. Nose is honey, metallic, hay. Taste is light grass, a bit alcoholic (!), malt flavors are subdued and very little hop aroma. Nice body for a lager and easily quaffed. Well done-wish I had a few more of these.

Bottle. Aroma of bready malt, german hops and malt. The flavor is a little roasted. Mostly noticed the caramel malt, bready malt, and yeast.

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.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - SEP 4, 2011
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.

Beaver (1297) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange-brown with a small fizzy head that quickly disappears.

The aroma is earthy malts and sweet caramel with a touch of spicy hops.

The flavor is rather bland. It has some sweet watery malts up front with a bit of a spicy lightly bitter finish. The flavors become more apparent as it warms. The mouthfeel is medium bodied but watery.

Overall, a nice, albeit run of the mill, beer.
