COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 2001 Silver Medal Winner at the North American Brewers' Association competition. A deep-copper colored medium - bodied ale. Its fresh flavor is smooth and carefully balanced with a nice mellowness and hint of caramel malt balanced by medium hop bitterness. It is an all malt beer that is naturally carbonated. A very drinkable beer all on its own and pairs well with all kinds of foods.

(draft) Clear medium copper body, minimal head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, malty. Taste is mild -- some caramel, but generally bland maltiness. No hoppiness to speak of. Palate is soft and smooth.

Medium amber color, medium head. Mildly malty, slightly sweet, even somewhat fruity. Lighter tasting amber ale, slightly hoppy. Lighter body and lighter flavor. Good taste. Mouthfeel is full and smooth. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Light and refreshing beer.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2004 The beer after its disinterment from the 12-ounce brown bottle sets in the glass a clear dark amber color with a modest and frothy head that is an off white color, the resident lace a thin but covering sheet. Nose is malt, sweet, and buttery, grainy, with the start nicely malt laden and a bit sweet, the middle is light. Finish is middling on the carbonation and the hops decent in their spiciness, dry aftertaste, a decent beer but not a great beer and would make a good session beer.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 7, 2002
Hazy amber with a light head and light carbonation. Toasted corn aroma. Weird yeasty/popcorn/caramel taste that seems to be dominant in this brewers beers. Light crispness and hop bitterness. Don’t care for that ’flavor’ though.

TAR (2497) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2002
Butterscotch/crabmeat aroma??sure smells like it. With those characteristics, I can’t say anything too good about this beer other than having a ’clean’ finish.’ I am not a big fan of refreshing beers.
