From Jul 2007
Purchased at Wilbur's Liquors in Ft Collins as part of a mixed 6 Pack.
This pours from 12oz bottle(brewed and bottled in Ft Collins) a clear amber with a quickly dissipating head of foam. By the the time I finished typing that, the only remains of the foam is a ring around the glass and there's almost no lacing.
The smell has some caramel malt and nutiness in it. A good nose, imho.
The taste is nice. I get some sweet malt, a heeping helping of grain, and a nice nutty flavour. Over all, this is a sweet Amber but it doesn't go overboard and become cloying. I like sipping on this Amber and I'm not a huge fan of the style. The body is on the thin side but the flavours kind of cover that flaw and it's pretty lightly carbonated so for me, it has a nice drinkability factor going on. I'd say that if you see some, try some. You may be pleasantly surprised as I was. Good stuff.

From draft flight at Ram Columbus on June 22, 2017. Dark amber hue, nice sweet malty aroma, sweet malty flavor marred by medicinal taste. kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Pours a clear dark amber body with a small wispy beige head. The nose is sweet caramel and toasty malt with just a hint of hops. The flavor is pretty off though, a weird grape like fruitiness that dominates the malt, especially on the finish. Lacking in hops, and slightly husky. Medium bodied and a little clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Not the best, this one.

Draft at Boise brewery.Pretty bland.l Light, clear amber. Faint aroma and taste, genetic maltiness. Not much of a finish. Just all around weak. Homer321 (5191) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Draft at source. Aroma of nutty bread and bread crust. Brownish red pour. Initially s bitter husky flavor followed by an underwhelming flat and thin mouthfeel. Tastes like bitter watered down coffee bnokk (545) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 27, 2016
very dark amber color. Light beigh head.
NOSE- slightly malty scent, nothing overwhelming.
FLAVOR- slightly bitter at the start of the sip, maltiness comes through at the end. I don’t love the aftertaste. mintzmeet (458) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2016
woah, looks pretty dark brown for an amber. no head. on draft at Rams in Northgate mall. Love the aroma, almost like chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Tastes like it smells but no roasted flavor really. nice carbonation pop to it. Some of the more nutty flavors taste "young."
