Beaver (1327) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 21, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a smallish creamy off white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass.

The aroma is pretty subdued- some nutty malts and a little cola and some floral hops.

The flavor is nutty caramel malts with some slightly fruity bitterness at the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and pretty watery.

Overall, an OK malt forward beer. Itís similar to Fort Collinsí Retro Red. I liked this better on tap.

notalush (4959) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 3, 2010
Dark, cloudy amber pour - probably one of the more complex ambers Iíve had - very malty, with a lot of prune, raisin, and molasses in the aroma and the flavor - some notes of spice kick in just in time for the hops to compliment it - a touch of toasted malt flavor on the back end - a bit of spicy warmth last through the finish - one of the few ambers Iíve had that I would happily buy again.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Rich molasses, malt, and slight chocolate cinnamon nose. Brilliant red amber, small head. Sweet caramel malt and mild bitterness. Lightish carbonation, thin body, finish is malty but ends too quickly. Nose suggests it will be better than it is. The beer is tasty, but it could use something more, maybe more body and carbonation?

dwyerpg (4629) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 24, 2009
This has a pretty good sweet aroma. The head is very tasty. Creamy but with a good graininess. The flavor is grainy as well, but sweet and creamy as well. Really, this is quite nice. 2 for 2 with these guys.

A 12oz bottle. The beer poured a nice amber body and thin cream head. the smell is nutty citrus and so is the taste. Good carbonation.

aplusbreaks (330) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Draft at the brewpub in Grand Lake. Pours a reddish amber with a thin off white head. Aromas of caramel malts, and some slight smoke notes? I think my nose is off today but the flavor seemed to confirm the smoke. Nice hop presence in the mid palate. Interesting beer for sure.

ilherps (248) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2008
The beer has a reddish amber color, tastes caramelized and slightly of hops on the finish. I smell dust on the nose. Flavors are of toffee, malts, and lots of coffee.

Aubrey (3444) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Bottle: Medium amber hue; very thin head. Mouthfeel is smooth and fairly easy to drink; light carbonation. Light sweetness (Boston baked beans, toffee, buttered toast). Healthy hoppy bitterness (grass, flowers, tree sap) with a bit of sourness (grapefruit zing, orange rind). Somewhat bold for the style, but not bad.

desurfer (1222) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Tap at the brewpub in Grand Lake. Pours a light reddish brown with no head. Aroma is sweet and mildly hoppy. More hoppiness in the flavor, with some doughy malts to balance it out. Pretty good.
