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

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.

TheJestersBeer (2291) - SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2013
Draught @ Wynkoop. Pours a deep ruby read, with an off-white head. Hoppy, fruity aroma, light roast, spruce, resin, apricot, grapefruit, caramel. Semi-sweet, full bodied, high bitterness, balanced CO2. Hoppy, spicy taste, spruce, caramel, apricot, light chocolate, quite resiny and harsh. Powerful, yet a little off balance. (2013-10-07)

12 oz can from Evergreen Discount Liquors. Dark red and slightly hazy with a lasting, off-white head that leaves thick lacing. Aroma is citrus fruits, caramel, sweet malts, light pine, light alcohol and toffee. Similar flavor, medium bitterness and mild sweetness. Medium bodied with a bittersweet finish. Not bad.
