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.

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.

This is a pretty tasty malt-centric lager. Itís maybe a little sweeter than it should be but it does at least have solid malt taste to back it up. Itís amber in the glass w/ a small white head. It has maybe a touch of earthy hops but itís all about the toasty, nutty, caramel type malt flavors. This particular combination of flavors, to me, brings to mind a bitter as much as any lager--and that is not necessarily a bad thing. It is full bodied w/ mild but still slightly prickly carbonation and finishes w/ some lingering honey-like sweetness, some iced-tea astringent notes and a touch of bitterness. If this was a little more dry, itíd be a great beer. As it is, it is worth drinking but nothing special.

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.

crossovert (10656) - Illinois, USA - DEC 4, 2014
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.
