Our “Velvet M-80” is a hefty, dry hopped double-red ale with a nose full of aroma, a sticky mouthfeel, a malty middle and unctuous hop flavors. G’Knight sports a surprisingly sensuous finish for a beer of its size (8.7% ABV, 60 IBUs). It’s brewed in tribute to a fellow Colorado craft beer pioneer and Vietnam vet who died fighting a 2002 wild fire outside of our Lyons hometown.

Pours red/brown, with an off-white head. Aroma is hops and malt. Flavor is much the same. A solid brew.

Yum, this is a different beer. I have never had beer from a can that was this good. It looks like a red smells like an IPA and tastes like a malty IPA, I’d drink this again.

Pours brown with lots of foamy white head. Strong hop and citrus aroma. Taste much the same but with some nice malt flavor. Reminds me a a good IPA.

A nice mix of styles coming together in this great can. Kind of hits you in the face without thinking twice about it at first pour. Amazing great things like this can come in a can.

cheap (5123) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Big glass at Bocktown for $6. Big foamy off white head. Color is hazy iced tea. Big hoppy aroma, like clean pine needles. Big citrus grapefruit rind flavor. Quite an impact on the taste buds. It gives me the feeling like there is perfumy dish soap in this brew. Some mild carbonation. Hops are very one sided and overwhelming. A little sweet initially with each taste but that turns into an offensive bitter bite after it’s in your mouth for a while. A little too much for my girlie lager taste buds. Very coarse and very annoying on the finish, as expected for this style. Will not buy again.

Wow the nose on this baby is like walking through the hop farm while eating caramels. Smells like an IPA but is dark amber in color. This must be poured from its can. Medium bodies with sweet malts and and big bitter hoppiness that lasts to the finish.

Dedollewaitor (15325) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 5, 2007
Can, tasted with beermouth: Paid around 8,50 US dollars for this 33cl can. (Lets keep that a secret) Clear red amber with a full white head. Sweet malts, caramel & sugar & a power hoppy aroma & taste. Far from thick body, though filling & very smooth. Oily & sticky palate. Good lacings. Medium carbonation. Bitter hoppy lasting end - soapy & flowery hops... Wauw... Great Ish!

On can, thanks to dedollewaitor... Clear reddish amber like with good solid white head. Nice hoppyness and good fruity caracter. Lot’s of caramel, malt and sweet spices. Fine lacings.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2007
Nose is orange and piney hops, orange/copper colour, pours a small off-white head. Flavour has loads of orange, pine and malts. Full bodied, well balanced, bitter and ever so tasty. Great example!

Svesse (7683) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2007
(Can, Bishop’s Arms, Järntorget, Gothenburg, 1 Aug 2007) Dark amber colour with frothy off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of grapefruit, pine needles and resin. Frutiy, hoppy taste with pine needles, resin, grapefruit and citrus peel. Full body with slightly oily mouthfeel. Sweetness is rather balanced, with notes of marzipan coming through the wall of hops towards the finish. Great beer, the best canned beer I’ve tried this far.
