COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The sunniest beer in the Empyrean universe. Chaco Canyon’s light outset is punctuated with a crisp, piney, American-hop finish. The addition of honey lends this beer a very clean finish.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 This beer has a golden appearance, an attractive frothy head, and a light, grainy aroma. Taste-wise there’s not a lot going on in Chaco Canyon, but it’s pretty hard not to like what’s there. Sleek grains with a sweet touch from the honey. That bit of honey also creates scome dryness that kept me coming back for more.

Sweet Chaco canyon with honey and golds. Such a refresh beer with hop and golden colour of splendor.

On tap at Lazlo’s in Lincoln. From Notes 9/29/2012. Pours a golden color with white head. Malty, straw, refreshing flavor. Very easy drinking.

BVery (6980) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle from Happy Harry’s in Fargo, ND. Bright orange pour with a smaller white head. Aroma of grain, some earth/grass, maybe a touch of pine. Slight bitterness on the finish. Just a touch of honey sweetness in here, but overall there isn’t a ton of character.

unclemike (2309) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Very pale golden with a fluffy, white head that leaves spots of lace. Lightly grainy aroma with a mild hint of dusty hops. Light bodied but refreshing with a touch of lemon and earthy. Finishes clean with a bit of lingering bitterness

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle from his home state. The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is fairly basic, with a lot of honey and wheat coming through. That also pretty much describes the flavor, which has some honey, wheat and some graininess. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Thanks to Seymour for this one. Pours golden / orange with a small wispy head. The aroma has light, if any, roast, cream and hints of bread. Medium / light body with micro carbonation. The taste starts a bit fruity and watery with some mineral traits giving some astringency. The finish is quite phenolic. Fair.
