COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. For all the details behind this tribute follow this link to www.N3978Y.com. G’Mornin’. G’Day. G’Knight.

Mmm.....beer in a can. Already having had Old Chub and Dale’s Pale Ale, I know better than to be surprised that there’s a quality brew under this pop-top. The head was big and short-lived. The aroma is huge with lots of piney hops. The flavor, though, is a bit of a let-down at first. Kind of weak, flat and unfulfilling at the start. The flavors continue to resonate and develop after each sip ultimately making this a good one to sip.

I ranked this beer high in aroma, appearance and palate but the flavor was lacking complexity and fullness so overall it got low marks. Mahogony colored pour with large head. Aromas full of hops, oranges and cherries. Taste is mostly alcohol with a background piney and light fruity and resiny. The body is very chewy and thick and the finish is alcohol and grapefruity. Not bad at all for a canned beer.

Dark ruby-orange color with a thin white head. Sniffed the can after opening, before pouring, and got a nosefull of hop aroma. Real piney and fresh. Taste begins with sharp resiny hop flavors. The finish lacks any lingering hop flavor, but the beer is so drinkable, I can’t knock it too bad.

It pours a rich amber color with a pretty stable light white head. Very nice and inviting looking. Big piney hops aroma, quite monstrous. Very sharp. Also has some grapefruit hints and citrus. Very big taste although the hops arent overwhelming, but still bigger than normal. Very smooth finish, which I wasnt expecting. Pretty bitter towards the finish and I get alot of funked out citrus as well. Hard to imagine canned beer being this good and complex.

The aroma has grapefruit and pine hops along with caramel. The appearance is deep amber with a three finger head. The palate is sticky as advertised. Good beer in a can? Thanks Gordon.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2007
Slightly resiney aroma, some citrus, and caramel. Pours a dark amber. Hops are definitely the defining flavor, citrus, pine, spicey, a little alcohol, resin, with a dry hoppy finish with a dash of caramel in there somewhere.

12oz can. Pours a dark, reddish-amber appearance; fluffy, off-white head with big-bubbled lacing. Citrus and grapefruit and minerals in the aroma; set against a backdrop of tea-like malts. Full, chewy mouthfeel: lots of grapefruit and citrus; dank hop presence; wet malts and maple syrup backdrop; well-balanced. Lengthy, citrus hop and wet malt finish.

Deep amber colour with a tan head. Sweet, close to buttery aroma with a hoppy floral and fruity note. Buttery flavor, seems diacetyl infected.

FoolishMortal (989) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Can. Dark orange with a medium sized rocky white head. Candied citrus and ruddy floral hop aromatics with tinges of buttery malt underneath. Metallic citric hop character up front, mildly toasty malt follows with a deeper pine hop flavor. Stale caramel in the finish with some residual toastiness and a lingering earthen hop bitterness and astringency. Mouthfeel is medium, fairly dry.
