3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The 12 ounce bottle poured a flat-but-clear orange-amber colored beverage with a small, creamy, white head that was mostly diminishing but that left good lacing on the glass. The aroma had a light, sweet and fruity fragrance to it. There were notes of caramel with a very light floral hop backdrop. The body was medium with a soft carbonation and a creamy, smooth texture. The flavor started out sweet and stayed that way through the medium-long finish. There was even a slight alcohol warmth in the chest.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Honey and burnt caramel on the nose with some soft fruit. Brownish amber color, medium soapy head. Brown sugar and caramel, some nutmeg, great bitter balance. Medium carbonation, lighter medium body, fruity smooth finish. All around excellent beer, understated complexity of flavors and a well-balanced structure.

Draft at the brewery. Copper color with white head. Not much in the aroma department-- some faint maltiness and underlying bitterness. Flavor is mild caramel malt with some crisp hop bitterness in the finish. A bit watery throughout. Not bad at all, very drinkable, but not a knockout.

Stopped in on my way home from Breckenridge. Have to say their food is dynamite! I had to drive so only ordered 1 beer, which was this. Poured a deep amber color, nose of caramel, nuts, and maybe some fruits. It was really malty for a lager, but rather enjoyable. The nose almost nailed the flavors on the palate. Cannot say I have ever had a lager like this, but it was good!

12 oz bottle. Pours a true amber with a quickly diminishing white head. Well-balanced sweet and bitter notes with a definite presence of lemon poppyseed muffins. Nice, crisp brew with a creamy, citrus finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had this on tap at the brewery. I was expecting more vienna malt taste in this one and was let down. The Pilsner had more malty flavors. Hops made themselves known only breifly in the background, waving as they slid down my throat. I would have liked for them to hang around a bit longer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden rule of beer drinking - the funkier the name, the crappier the beer. This watery brew has a horrible sweet flowery hop taste, like someone has put a shot of orange squash in the bottle. Better than Budweiser, I suppose. I’m pleased to say I haven’t seen this close to home.
