A- a deep reddish-amber with a thick, mouse-like light khacki head with long retention S- Deep layers of sweet caramely malt with hints of fruityness similar to raisins, dates and figs comingle with the layered earthy, spicy and citric hop notes. T- surprisingly hoppy considering the nose. Dark, fruitbread like notes. Slight caramely, malt sweetness, is balanced out by the sweet, fruity citrusy notes offered by the hops M/F- a smooth medium boddied ale that has found a way to use hops as a major player without abusiing the palate, instead offering bittsrness in the long, dry finish.

3/3/14. With Michelle. Single can. Lake Dillon, CO. Very nice aroma and color. Solid malt profile, but I think it could benefit from a little more hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (6216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Can. Head is initially average sized, creamy/frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough), with a note of butter/diacetyl. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Kinda clunky and simple, basically a resin bomb (although not very aromatically strong in general) with some raw doughy yeast.
