Draft. Looked amberish to me, but was hard to make out in the dark bar. Toasted caramel and a little floral and even yeasty aroma. More of the same in flavor. Fairly sweet upfront and a little spice in it too. It’s not bad, but not my favorite.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A nice amber ale sometimes with a hint of orange. Appearance can be sparkling,with a tan foam head. A nice caramel, woody aroma with a bitter-sweet taste, full body, thick feel, and a lively, long finish. A great beer with foods, on the slopes, or for savoring after a long hard day. If you can make it to Fort Collins it is worth it to take the New Belgium Beer tour... A personal favorite.

Not bad. A couple of bottles of these before going off to a Mariners game. Robustness all up it in. They seem to love this one here in Washington, even though its from Colorado.

Bottled. An amber coloured beer with a nice white head. The aroma is malty with biscuity qualities some fruit and some dusty chocolate. The taste is malty and dry. There is a metallic off-putting taste in the back of the mouth. OK but uninspiring.

Out of a bottle. Aroma biscuity and wet basement. Poured a nice amber with a white head. Flavor was ok sweet malts and hops, pretty even. It was ok nothing spectacular.

Color is very nice, aroma betrays the taste however. Taste is sour and bitter with a raw finish. Definitely will not purchase again.

great amber coloring with a white head. Floral aroma with a good mix of maltiness and hopiness. The bike theme makes this a mainstay at my team parties.

Dark copper with a large white head that is mostly diminishing. Smells of hay, silage, straw and grass. Rather sweet flavor, brown sugar, over-ripe apples, caramel, and dates. Nice mouthfeel, moderately carbonated and full. Better than average. Thanks to Crash for bringing this back for me from Tejas.
