3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
4th September 2009
Hazy amber beer. Small cream coloured head. Semi soft palate, just a tad dry. Light creamy malt blends very well with well behaved and slightly citrus hop. A little more zingy than the 5 Barrel. Seduces with it subtlety and deftness.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear orange with medium off white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is caramel and resin. Medium body, earthy hop, caramel, light bitter finish, good.

Looks deep gold. Barely amber. Has a faint sweerness like an amber but significant enough hop bitterness not to suck.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Looks decent...nice amber colour with a silky head. Smells like a lager and taste is quite bland. Still refreshing though...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
