UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 i asked for the hoppiest thing they had and got this on 7/18/10.
reddish tinted brown pour/caramel with a creamy off white head.
it smells biscuity... mixed with caramel, toasty malt, nuts, faint chocolate and spice.
the flavor mirrors the aroma with a nice crisp hoppy finish. it is clean and fairly satisfying. 6/3/6/3/14/3.2
can from the brewery rating holds except it is on the fuller side, very creamy and soft. 6/3/6/4/14/3.3

On tap at Silverton Brewery. What a surprise this was. Nice mild aroma of malt. A robust red pour with a nice loose head. Malty flavor finishes quickly with a soft hop presence. Not sweet, nicely dry and easy to drink.

Had this beer at the All Colorado Beer Fest on 11/10/2007. Aroma is malty with light hop tones. Color is brown with good carbonation and a loose head. Its got a bold malty body with light hop flavor and mild bitterness. Its a good Amber, much hoppier then most.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at All Colorado Beer Festival. Pours clear amber with a spare, fizzy, off-white head, diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (cookie, caramel), light hops (herbs, grass), average yeast (dough, meat) with notes of dates and toffee. Medium bodied, slick texture, soft carbonation, and a bitter finish. Average duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 DRAFT: Deep amber-red hue with a nice and lasting head. Soft and smooth with a mild carbonation. A little chewy, even. Big caramel, with lesser notes of nuts, toast and a hint of earthy wood. Sticky caramel surfaced here and there. Hops were lightly grassy and a little herbal. Dryish finish wrestles with the cloying sweetness. Sweetness got a little heavy at times, but it wasn’t too bad. I would’ve liked to see less sweetness or more bitterness, or both, but it was surely drinkable. RERATE Can: Somewhat meaty Irish red ale with a light carbonation. Hints of dark toast, toffee and bitter chocolate. Zingy hops give it an earthy, plant-like quality. Something in the sweet malts made me think of the candy coating on Boston Baked Beans.
