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.

Twelve ounce bottle from Fort Collins variety pack bought at The Party Source. Light orange color, sweet malty nose with some skunkiness, sweet malty flavor with sweetness boardering on sugary, bitter finish with some stringency.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
355ml bottle into a "perfect pint" glass. Ligher amber color and a frothy white head. It has a really odd wine aroma, its also booze perfumey like an eastern euro strong lager, some rubber and sweet fruity caramels. The flavor doesnít provide much, light herbal hops, firm but light bitterness, gentle malts, quite dry and minerally.

Aroma is honey, brown sugar, and sweet. Clear and dark orange color from 12oz bottle at home. Taste is sweet, honey, maple, and sugary. Just not a pleasant beer in my opinion. I donít like ambers much but acn appreciate a lot of them, but not this one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Premium lager my white ass. This is an amber. Mild, medium bodied. 1900 is a pretty good description...tastes antiquated. Murky unfiltered body. Lacy soapy off-white head. Borderline infected. Pretty shabby.

Maybe it's a problem with me, but all ambers kind of taste the same. This is less sweet than most and not as sticky. As an intolerant father from years ago may say... I approve of it, but not it's (life)style.
