BeerandBlues2 (9081) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear amber with an average, frothy and bubbly off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus, and floral hops, pear and apple esters, biscuit and caramel malt. Flavor is medium hops and bitterness, caramel and lightly toasted malt, fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Concealer (649) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours an amber red with a caramel white head that sticks around. Smells of caramel, toasted malts, and toffee. Flavor is the same but with a bitter finish and some cereal. Medium bodied.

Beaver (1219) - 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.

A beer that drinks like a meal. Hoppy flavor. Became more difficult to drink as the night wore on.

Atom (1212) - 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.

Nutty, some mild fruit flavor, but otherwise forgettable. Grassy hops, light body.

tennessejed420 (927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2010
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 that’s pretty much it. Unlike the brown, this is at least drinkable, although barely, and not enjoyable.
