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.

The aroma isn’t bad with citrus hops, caramel, and a touch of sweet fruitiness. The appearance is light amber brown with an average head for the style. The taste is soapy and astringent with a cardboard quality. The only sweetness coming up front. The palate is average for the style. Overall not that good. Maybe my bottle is old.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2011 Tasted on tap at the Steakout Saloon in Fort Collins, Colorado. Light to medium amber appearance with pretty good size head. Weak aroma with a slight malty smell. Strong caramel malty flavor.

ChainGangGuy (4386) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2010
16 ounce pint - $5.25 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Served up a near clear, clean copper body with a thin, white head, albeit from a generous pour. Smell: Understated scent of sparingly toasted barley with hints of bread and biscuits rounded out be even lighter notes of caramel, citrus, and spice. Taste: A toasty mixture of grainy bread and biscuit tops with a lightly sweet touch of caramel (though a bit more as it warms). Six carefully administered drops of apple juice. A light dose of earthy, spicy hops providing a small hint of citrus and a restrained level of balancing bitterness. Drying finish that’s quite crisp. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium-plus carbonation. Drinkability: A balanced, easily drinkable beer with an approachability beyond reproach.

MadIndian (2394) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Sampled at CBF 2010. Golden pour with mild reddish hue. Aromas of fruit and caramel malt. A dry toast flavor with a caramel malt taste. It was good for the style.

BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clear golden-copper color with an inch and a half thick, fluffy white head that receded relatively quickly to a bubbly layer and left some spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel, light toasted malt, a soft fruitiness (orange and tangerine), and some mellow, grassy hops. Smooth, lightly sweet entry with some light fruity notes (orange, apple) giving way to a moderately dry, lightly bitter, floral hoppiness that lingers lightly on the palate while undertones of sweet caramel and toasted malt peak through and follow into the smooth finish. Moderate, tight carbonation and supple hoppiness create a crisp, dry mouth feel. Overall, the dryness and hints of fruit keep it interesting and drinkable.

nearbeer (3750) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2010
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 (4081) - Beaver Valley, 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 can’t find a date code on the bottle. I’m a lager lover but this stuff does nothing for me, comes across more like a rude ale.

bigbish (534) - California, USA - JUL 19, 2010
"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, I’d drink a ton, but for the price, there are way better ambers out there. This is just too thin and boring.

LinusStick (2860) - 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 I’d never buy it again.
