Dependable beer, good taste. By dependable I mean it’s on tap almost everywhere so it should at least save you from the dreaded "big three". I might ven stock a few bottles now and then.

Awesome awesome beer. Good on tap good int he bottle. Besides its nice 5.3 is better than the light beers all the frat boys around here drink.

Interesting if you know the story behind this beer...an "American representation" of a Belgian beer...very thin head, very thin bodied...never found the "crisp hoppiness"...very malty with little hops to be found in my bottle...can be found at most bars around Dallas though...better than a lot of alternatives...

Clear amber color. Light toasty malt nose. Toasty malt flavors light hops in finish. Not much to say about this one.

A cult Classic in CO. A different take on the amber ale. Thin head, fruity hops, and a bit of spice on the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Slightly dark amber with a small head. Fruity and malt flavor with a little cocoa and a light citrus. Easy to drink, but nothing special.

I only bought this one based on the name (and they make a decent Tripel). Poured an amber color with a small head. Not much to this beer - average is as average does (nothing to write home about). I’ll on this one...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2004 The standard from New Belgium. A little head and a golden-umber color. Solid aromas of biscuit and malt. Drinkable and smooth, but with the very real hops of a good ale. Complex enough to linger on the palate, but not fruity, astringent, or acidic.
