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, I’m 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. It’s somewhat bitter, and would be unusually bitter for a pilsner, but then it also tastes like it’d 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 it’s clean with a nice depth of flavor, with only a slight off-taste undisguised by the rigidity and cleanliness of the style.

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.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into a wine glass. Light amber and clear appearance with an off-white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of toasted grains, toffee, light caramel malts, noble hops and a touch of herbs/spice. Similar flavor, malty, grainy, crisp, lightly rich and pretty clean. Light to medium body, pretty easy to drink. OK

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle has great crackery and biscuity character, light caramel and heavy toast, and some mild spice akin to rye contributions, with thick cloud of malt, some dough, faint citrus. Pours clear golden with light orange leanings and a sudsy off-white head. Taste clean, doughy and malty, toasty with wooden undertones that last long into the finish, along with lasting light bitterness and relative dryness. Some more biscuit, very faint citrus, and the hops are concentrating more on an earthy, mildly herbal contribution. Smooth, creamy and lightly crisp medium body, clean. This has a a woodsy, natural character about it, and just a dynamite collection of flavors in good balance.
