COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Levity was named by our brewers to reflect the lightness of color in this highly drinkable golden amber ale. Extremely refreshing, this is a mild, crisp, hoppy pleasure to consume.

Looks decent...nice amber colour with a silky head. Smells like a lager and taste is quite bland. Still refreshing though... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

this has an interesting, fruity/citrus aroma and a more golden appearance than most amber ales. the taste is nice and fruity, hoppy without being overly bitter, and refreshing. i like this one pretty well. im not a huge pale ale person because lately it seems to be a contest to see how bitter a pale ale can be. but this one is just bitter enough. most hoppy beers are not that refreshing to me, but this one is.

Notes from my recent Denver trip: Light amber pour, no head. Nose is vague grain. Bittersweet. Middle is more roasted grain. Finish is lightly sweet. OK.

August 7th, 2013 - Levity is a staple around Colorado - it’s that go-to brew for board game night when everyone’s too lazy to drive to their favorite liquor vendor, but walking is still an option. Most corner stores have this, or something like this, which means it is often brought to parties and bundled up with fruits and vegetables on grocery runs. Drinking this straight from the bottle, I’m blind to the color and head, but the smell from the bottle’s neck is deep with maple syrup, caramelized carrots and sugary sweet potato ooze. I often give the amber style a hard time because they tend to be boring, but this is a deep, gripping taste. Sugars are dominant, but they’re not too candied. Instead , there’s plenty of almond, roasted carrots, and more of that sweet caramelized sweet potato. A little warmth adds another sugar layer, and it begins to be a little too sweet for me, but I have to acknowledge that given the style, this brew packs a lot of flavor.

12 oz. bottle from Chambers Liquor Mart. Best before April 9, 2015. Pours amber, a little on the lighter side of the style. It’s nice and clear with a bubbly white head. The aroma is crisp, grassy, sweet and balanced. Hops are more piney than anything. As I expected, this is very clean and devoid of any off flavors. The malt is a little sweeter than I thought, but not sticky like Fat Tire can get. It’s very enjoyable for 12 oz. worth. Multiple bottles may get a little sugary for my taste. There’s a reasonably biscuity flavor with a suggestion of light honey. No assertive bitterness is noticed. The finish is quick and balanced. It’s not aggressive, but rather a smooth, sessionable amber ale. Pretty nice.

This is one of those odd beers for classification. The first few sips establish a solid ale, but then it begins to sweeten on the tongue -- and this sweetness tinges the subsequent swallows.
