COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
1900 is a nod to the very things that got us where we are today- crisp, clean microbrews all from the belly of a little brewery tucked away in the outskirts of Old Town. The result is a superbly refreshing, bright and delicately balanced amber lager.

Bottle poured a clear light amber w/ a small white head slowly diminishing to a thin cap w/ good lacing. Mild aroma of straw. Initial flavor is light sweet followed by a light bitter finish of short duration. Taste is lightly toasted bread and straw. Light bodied, watery texture, and soft carbonation.

June 25th, 2011 - The Fort Collins 1900 tastes, feels and smells somewhere between a crisp, clean pale lager and pilsner, with clear, more distinct notes of pilsner malt. Admittedly, Im confused, but I enjoy the way it straddles the boundaries between beer styles. Light yellow in color with a shade of orange for depth, and a very clear body, I see why they invoke the image of the crisp, clear Colorado air on the label. The smell is where I first catch the confounding pils qualities, alongside some fresh corn and even a broccoli vegetal quality. It smells clean and inviting, and a taste reveals much of the same. Its somewhat bitter, and would be unusually bitter for a pilsner, but then it also tastes like itd be well within bounds to call itself an amber. Suddenly I remember a beer style I sampled once called a classic pils which fits much of the same flavor profile as this. Overall its clean with a nice depth of flavor, with only a slight off-taste undisguised by the rigidity and cleanliness of the style.

Pours a bright, clear orange with a nice, bubbly white head. Bready, malty, slightly skunky aroma. Flavor is light bready malts as well, plus a bit of hop bitterness and more subtle skunk. Very light and mostly crisp, just the skunk throws me off. Know what I mean?

Bottle. Strong hay aroma, smells like the malt house in my WI hometown. Light amber, sunset gold. Flavors got some light grassiness to it. Lands crisp and easy on the tongue. Overall, could be an easy starter beer for someone unacquainted with crafts. Not disagreeable, not exciting.

Not much aroma from this one. The taste was decent for an amber lager, crisp caramelly maltiness. There just wasnt much going on other than that.

Deep orange amber colored brew with a thick khaki head. The nose is fairly rich with grain and some caramel. There is also some sweet potatoes. Earthy tones and tobacco come through. The taste is bitter bread crust and a little bit of grass. It finishes with some grapefruit rinds and a note of raw potato. This is very tasty stuff, a nice hoppy lighter lager style.

12 oz bottle: Aroma is caramel, slightly grainy, lightly malty, and some grassy hop poking of from the background. Appearance is a light amber (more close to golden) with a thick white head that lingers. Taste is malt forward with caramel notes finishing with a nice grassy hop characteristic. Overall, Its a decent amber. Cheers!
