2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 1/20/13
Aroma: The nose is sweet malts, must, grains, lemon zest, and some bready notes
Appearance: Pours a hazed orange color with an inch of off-white head and some drippy lace
Flavor: The flavor is sweet and malty, thereís a little citrus too, with minimal bitterness
Palate: The body is light, it has a decent feel, a average-plus carbonation, and a tingly finish
This one wasnít a favorite for me. Itís a little musty, doesnít have a great feel, and that tingly, lemony finish just didnít work all that well either. Not bad, but not a winner either.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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, Iím 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. Itís somewhat bitter, and would be unusually bitter for a pilsner, but then it also tastes like itíd 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 itís clean with a nice depth of flavor, with only a slight off-taste undisguised by the rigidity and cleanliness of the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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. Flavorís 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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not much aroma from this one. The taste was decent for an amber lager, crisp caramelly maltiness. There just wasnít much going on other than that.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
