Tap. Pours clear, dark amber with thin, fizzy off-white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is mostly mute with notes of caramel, bread malt, light pear, floral hops, and figs. Flavor is cereal and caramel malts forward with some floral hops and subtle fruit esters; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2006
Had this at the brewery. Beer poured a clear, light-amber color with a small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing head that left behind nice lacing. The aroma was fair: lightly malty with notes of roasted grain and caramel, lightly hoppy with a note of pine and lighty dressed up with miscellaneous notes of vanilla and honey. The flavor was lightly sweet with a trace of bitterness that had an average-length, lightly bitter finish. The body was light-to-medium, the texture was watery and the carbonation was fizzy. There was also a trace of alcohol at the end. Not a very engaging brew.

Bottle: Clear amber color. Fair amount of carbonation. Not bad, however I wasn't drinking it in a chalet. I was drinking it in my apartment after a weekend of skiing. Tasty.

Tasted in the glorious state of Colorada. Tasted at Keystone at an altitude of appoximately 9,156 ft above sea level. Tastes and seems like a standard continental lager.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 20, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Light copper amber in color with a thin off white head. Aroma is a sweet doughy caramel, but not strongly pronounced. Carbonation level is high making the beer have an unpleasanrt palate when coupled to the thin body. Drinkable, but not memorable.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2010
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.

snoworsummer (2325) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear brown with a thin, fizzy white head. Tastes like hops and malt, creamy, nutty, light pine and grapefruit. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like grains and leather.

Aubrey (3444) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2003
Bottle: Clear and deep amber with a tinge of copper. Head almost completely disappeared, but it had a lively carbonation. Malts were very bready, grainy and husky. Minuscule amount of sweetness. Finished with a healthy amount of dry bitterness. Dry and bitter aftertaste. Not too bad, though it did seem a little unbalanced.
