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.

Obviously this is a lager, but this beer has virtually no taste whatsoever. Watery as well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at FCB - light amber with lacing. Has a noticeable malty backbone but somewhat of a hemp aroma and a sweet taste. Part of a flight but I could see slowing sipping one of these.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Part of the Brewerís Lunchbox mixpack, ABC Liquors, Bull Run. Bad label. Clear, marzen-looking beer with a lacy head. Sweet aroma without much in the way of noticable hops. A polar flavor - sweet on one hand and hoppy on the other without a real marriage of those flavors. Grainy, slightly grassy-astringent, toasty. Tastes like marzen. Mild, toast-bitter finish. Medium body. Sessionable, and not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear deep golden color out of the bottle with a thin off white head. Nose of crackers and a little lemon rind. Actually a very nice lager beer. Crisp malty flavors with some lemon notes, white bread and a delicate bitterness in the finish. Why canít all lagers be like this?
