4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Had this beer on 6/22/2006. Aroma is rich with a sweet roasted malt scent and fresh hops. Color is a light brown with light carbonation and thin tight head. Taste is full of flavor from malty richness to a fresh happiness. Starting with medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish burst out at you with a roasted malt flavor followed by fresh hops and a nice bitterness. It seems a bit hoppy for an Amber, but I love this beer.

12 oz bottle pours a dark, brownish-red with no real head to speak of. Biscuit, toasted malt, a hint of light fruits on the nose. Flavor is more sweet and fruity, with a malt presence balancing it out. Smooth but unremarkable.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle pours clear amber with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, yeast, toffee, and nuts. Taste is lots of caramel malts followed by some nutty bitterness until the end, roasted and chocolate malts present. Not great by any means and barely drinkable.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
bottle. Pours ruby red with almost no head. Almost looks identical to their booger brown, which was my first drainpour. This one actually smells ok, caramel, toffee, nuts. Thin, watery body, almost no carbonation, which does not work well for this beer. Flavor presents a sickly sweet molasses aspect, and thatís pretty much it. Unlike the brown, this is at least drinkable, although barely, and not enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from brewery, pours pale amber with flat head. Lighter hops, malt and slight caramel flavor without a lot of complexity. A very drinkable beer; overall not bad.
