Draft at the Coors Brewery. Pours amber with thin off-white head. Strong aromas of fresh hops, primarily pine. Some malt with hoppy bitterness and some subtle pine notes. Not as flavorful as the aroma would lead one to believe. BelgianBeerGal (4140) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2017
Draft compliments of Zac at the base of Purgatory on a cool, wet day watching Mud Runners go hypothermic. Okay this makes more sense now seeing the style; I expected something hoppy from CO. It was a nice malty, yeasty brew with a hint of hop bitterness for balance. Pleasant. ZacM612 (751) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2017
Draft at Paradise, Purgatory, CO. Deep amber color with a medium off-white head. Malty, caramel hints. Smooth with a lightly hoppy finish. Not bad. GTAEgeek (2343) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 4, 2017
Drunk from a 12 oz. bottle. The aroma is pretty good caramel malts, rye, brown sugar, and dirt. Malty sweetness, with a light bitterness. Light to medium body, grainy, chewy, and clean. This is a solid, flavorful, and easy beer. StefanSD (2451) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2017
12 oz bottle. I bought a sixer of this to marinade some bratwurst in, I find that amber lagers work well for this purpose. Amber-copper color with a small off white head that soon receded to a fine film. The aroma is rather weak and indistinct with just a trace of sweet caramel. The taste, like the aroma, is rather weak with some caramel and creamed corn. The palate is where this really falls apart--It is weak and watery with prickly carbonation that is distracting. On the plus side it does have a nice crisp finish, but with a weird aftertaste. God I hope this works well with the brats. Overall: In the world of hits and misses this is a miss. Did not know this was a crafty one when I bought it, I really should pay more attention.

Mediocre amber lager. Sharp bite hides the slightly sweet/stale malt character. Very little aroma. foyle (425) - Wyoming, USA - DEC 6, 2016
Served from 12 oz bottle in pilsner glass.
2" cream colored head drops slowly with plenty of lacing. Color is clear amber with abundant streaming carbonation. Aroma of toasted malt and grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with a fairly crisp finish. Flavors of toasted bread and cracker with a nice grassy hop bite. Overall Nicely done to the style, enjoyed this one.

Draft. Amber color with a beige head. Aroma and taste is caramel malt. Smooth finish. kajser27 (1963) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 13, 2016
Clear, copper colored, small non lasting beige head. Aroma is of some malt, caramel, some brown sugar and bit herbal notes. Taste is medium sweet caramel, biscuit and brown sugar, medium- herbal bitterness with a hint of citrus, bit bready, somewhat dry, actually a pleasant finish and aftertaste. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Not that bad.
(bottle from the brewery) altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2016
On tap at United Lounge, DEN airport. Hazy dark amber body with thin lasting head. Nose is toasty, caramel, a tad sweet. Taste is similar of malts, caramel, spices. Creamy finish. Okay, but just a bit too sweet in the finish.
