2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It’s been a long time coming, finding a beer made by a brewery in Nevada. You’d think that as big as Las Vegas is and how many people frequent that city, along with Reno that there’d be more craft breweries. Guess it’s just gambling and more gambling in those cities. Still glad to see Ruby Mountain at the store with all it’s different styles.
The beer pours out a hazy light copper/amber color with a nice off-white 1-finger thick head. The aroma is mostly made up from light fruits (peaches?), caramel malts, with a light floral bitterness to it. Mouthfeel is slightly watery and sptrizy. Flavors started off with a subtle caramel maly roast quality and then finished with just a touch of floral hops. Decent beer, given how boring some beers in this style can be. Not a barnburner, but not bad for my first beer from Nevada.

Pour was caramel golden brown with a thin layer of soapy head. Smell of caramel and fruit. Starts a little bitter and then nice and smooth at the end. Tastes of caramel and fruit overtones.

Bottle:Clear dark gold color with a white head and sticky lacing. Floral hop aroma. The taste is off a bit - farts, peppery hops and a little cardboard aftertaste. The feel is pretty thin, too thin for an amber that I like. Ok - my wife liked it though.

got this at Trader Joes in Las Vegas. After having this brewery's poor porter, this tasted even worse. Very coppery/metallic with very little flavor. I never heard of the brewery so I can't be too disapointed

On tap @ JR’s, Elko, NV. Pours medium amber, slightly hazy. Pretty average amber, a little on the watery side. Decent hoppy aftertaste.
