excellent beer! Scents of caramel, brown sugar, and butterscotch. Very clear amber color with little carbonation. The head dissipates quickly but that is to expected with this kind of beer. Tastes sweet with a good amount of malt. Very smooth.
Overall an excellent beer. This new brewery is started to give the other Colorado natives a run for their money!

22oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 45°. Color is a bright ruby with good carbonation and a small head. Aroma has a light chocolate and orange scent. Medium body and a very smooth mouth feel. Flavor is mild with toffee and a hint of dried orange then a bit of hop spice shows through ending with a gentle bitterness. After taste is clean with a faint sweetness popping up. Overall its a very good brew, much lighter then I was expecting. Its very easy drinking with mild flavors.

This is a pretty solid beer. A fairly interesting attempt at this German style from Fort Collins. It isn’t anything overly exciting, but it’s a spring seasonal, and it finally feels like spring today, so this one is enjoyable for sipping while I watch the tourney.
