Pours a brown/red amber color with a short lived almond colored head. Fair lacing. Tastes starts with a crisp hoppy and malt and a dry finish. Has a nice kick for what i think is an amber ale.

This beer is exactly as advertised -- "an irresistibly smooth and delicious medium-bodied amber ale." I really enjoyed this ale, with a mild aroma, smooth malty flavor, and a nice mouthfeel (not too watery, like most amber ales). Overall, I would recommend this. I drank this one while unpacking our stuff after we moved into our first house, and it really hit the spot.

Good to try; wouldn't turn one down(but wouldn't search for either). A nice English style ale that could benefit from more hops.

Tap. Mahogany. Small head and good lacing. Little aroma. Malty with some creamy hop. Reminds of a red ale, but with a different twist.

Mountain Brewers Beer Fest 2006. Lack of appearance judging reflects opaque plastic sampling cup.
Only average brown ale, a style I’m not a huge fan of to begin with.

Caramel, malt, slight bitterness are the main flavors. I found it somewhat uneventful for the palate, but still enjoyable. I think I just expected more.

A nice, malty ale. A hint of toffee sweetness. Plus, it just helped get someone I know off Budweiser, so bonus points for that.

Amber-orange color, with a dark tan head that disspiates quickly. Sweet, malty caramel head. First flavor is hoppy and clean, then slightly smoky and smooth.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2006 This is an incredible Scottish Ale, straight out of Fort Collins. At the time of this review, I couldn’t give it good glass-pour treatment, so no head report, although the aroma is very malty and pleasurable. The before, mid, and finish are as smooth and as slightly-malted as you would expect from a great ale.

Bottled - red/brown in appearance. Fruit and malt in the aroma. Flavor is slightly peaty with some nice hop bitterness. Very smooth. A decent 90/.
