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.

12 oz. Nice looking clear amber with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Sweet nose of fresh-cracked cereal grains and molasses. Flavor follows with just enough tart apple and dried grass to finish almost crisply. Near-medium body is balanced well, and lightly astringent making for a nice sessionable lager.

cheap (3808) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Slight horse or saddle aroma. Pale lager appearance. Stronger alky candy w/o sugar impressions on the buds. Yes, quite a strong personality. Cannot detect much hops here. Seems alky strong with out the soapy stuff. Perhaps smooth at times but not satisfying. Very little CO2. This comes across difficult at times. Seems to be old in taste but canít find a date code on the bottle. Iím a lager lover but this stuff does nothing for me, comes across more like a rude ale.

"Meh," is about the best way to explain this beer. Not very dark for an amber. Not much body or flavor. If this was $6 a six pack, Iíd drink a ton, but for the price, there are way better ambers out there. This is just too thin and boring.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2010
A typical amber ale sitting in the throes of mediocrity. Aroma was very weak and consisted of stale light caramel malt and metal. Pour was a nice enough very light amber with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was more on the malty side of the style with only a light almost cigarette hoppiness in the aftertaste. Odd. Decent carbonation keeps the beer refreshing and drinkable, though Iíd never buy it again.

HighlanderOne (958) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Poured from bottle. Nice aroma of roasted malt and brown sugar. Solid amber, thin tan head. Caramel and nut in flavor. Creamy feel. A touch of hops in the aftertaste. Nice stuff.

vikingguy (761) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Pours a deep gold with fluffy white head. Crisp grassy aroma. Flavor contrasts with the aroma. Aroma is sharp and grassy, flavor is mellow and malty. Notes of caramel and molasses. A little bit of a woodsy/grassy bitter hop finish (thatís where the aroma comes from) Very decent amber lager.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2010
The pour is a clear, orangey color with a white, fairly small, pillowy head which is mostly diminishing and leaves sporadic lace. The nose is pretty simple and bland with lots of grains, herbal notes, faint caramel, and some toasted notes. The flavor is not much different but less herbal; notes of fresh grains, faint herbal, more caramel, and light toasted bread notes. The palate is fair with being crisp, watery, drying a bit, moderately light, and lively. The finish is crisp, fairly short, herbal bitterness, and some grainy notes. The beers ends up leaving a nice impression for a balanced, drinkable lager, despite the shaky start. Not something I would drink often but still a drinkable, refreshing beer.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Bottle from Frugal MacDoogal. Pours a medium copper amber with a diminishing white head. Doughy and fruity ale ester aroma. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of caramel,toasted malts, tea, and a touch of citrus countered by a moderate herbal hop bitterness. Finishes a little thin. British malt character with American hopping rate. Could use more body for me, but not bad.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 9, 2010
In the bottle from HyVee CB. Pours copper with a medium off white head. Interesting aroma of toasted caramel and cherries. The flavor has a really delicious orange caramel taste, but the beer finishes with a really nasty harsh burn on the tongue.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Draft sample at the 13th Annual Knoxville Brewerís Jam. Amber in the glass with a thin but lasting white head that left good lace. Toasted malt aroma. The flavor also found toasted malt with a nut backing. Medium body.
