3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rustic copperish hue, with a small white head. Aroma of big toffee and a certain creaminess. Taste was actually pretty wheaty, with sweet caramel and amber malt tones. Nothing much on hop flavor, just enough bitterness to get by. A big meh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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?

Sampled on 9/9/2010. This amber ale pours a medium amber brown color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, malty and sweet. A medium bodied amber ale. The malts are caramel, cereal and semi-sweet. The hops are earthy and floral. Minimal carbonation. More caramel malt and less sweet than your typical amber. Seems more in the style of an English mild or bitter. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Grand Lake, Co. - on tap at Sagebrush BBQ. Medium copper pour, decent white head. Sweet aroma with hints of caramel. Flavor has some of the same caramel essence to it with a bit of a nutty back end. Decently thick mouthfeel. Somewhat solid. Went well with the sausage I had for dinner.

Pours reddish with white head, aroma has notes of slight pine, caramel, some earth and spice notes as well. Pretty simple but clean tastes, notes of bitter pine and grass, some biscuit, toast, slight bit of caramel, finishing slightly bitter, dry. Easy drinking.

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.
