Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Perfect bright red in color. Well balanced aroma and flavor, equally balancing malt and hops and providing flavors and aromas of caramel, mocha, toffee and resin. A pretty good"red" ale.

RSRIZZO (1853) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2007
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.

Atom (1344) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2011
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.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
Beaver (1295) - 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. It’s similar to Fort Collins’ Retro Red. I liked this better on tap.

desurfer (1219) - 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.

Zymurgeist2 (1027) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Pours a crystal clear deep amber. Tan head fades very quickly. Beautiful beer with head retention way too short. Aroma of caramel male follows through with a rich, deep malt flavor. The big malt carries through the entire mouthfeel. Falls off somewhat quickly, but a good beer all around.

Blah. Probably the worst beer in my grand lake variety 6 pk. Amber pour w/ a decent tan head. Aroma is of slightly sweet malt. Taste is bland but pretty well balanced. Not great!
