Clear amber in colour with almost no head. Sweet maltiness with some subtle yeastiness. Short flavour full of malt with a very subtle hoppiness. Once again, not my favourite style, but even this could be improved tremendously. I bought this 12 ounce bottle from Total Beverage in Thornton (Denver), Colorado. ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2004
Copper coloured, small head. Sweet aroma of toffee and nuts. sweet caramelly flavour with hints of toffee. medium body. Dry finish with hints of caramel. Just plain boring. arjoseph (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2005
Bottle into pint glass. Insanely drinkable. Not challenging at all. One for the masses, but solid. Copper in the glass with a yellow tan frothy head that was fairly large, retains a thin but noticable dusting. Very little aroma, but hints of citrusy hops and caramel malt. Very malty up front, smooth, but no discernable character. Hops come in citrusy to start the abortive finish, but no real bitterness to speak of. If I could brew something like this as my house brew for like $0.20 a bottle, I’d be happy with myself. I expect commercial stuff to taste better than mediocre homebrew, however, knowing that these guys can make good beer (Mojo). willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2005
10.02.05 Cask at Denver ChopHouse. Clear copper color with thin sudsy head. Lovely floral aroma is subtle but inviting. Simple but enjoyable mix of caramel malts and light floral hops. The finish is mildly bitter and dry. Some lingering toffee.JK (6202) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 16, 2006
They also had this on tap and it was terrible. What a difference between the two. I’m going to average the points, but a cask only score would be 7-3-6-3-13.
A well hopped amber ale. Light red. Aroma is simple hops. The flavor has light hops and some sweet malt, but not much of this. Actually very similar to their Pass Time.

On tap at Bluebricks in Mankato in the fricking huge glass designed for the college drunkards. The pour is a brownish golden color, giving off light, bland aromas of honey and hay. Fairly dominant flavor of the pale honey-lemon malts and no discernable hop presence which might have been nice. A pretty dead brew all around. auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Amber colored pour with medium sized head. Sweet, fruity nose with a hoppy sweet finish. This was ok. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2009
a perfectly adequate copper ale. taste somewhat malty with a strongier astrigency that i was expecting. heavy hoppy backnote. its ok, nothing special. JPDIPSO (6238) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Dark golden to near amber color with a beige head. Typical caramel aroma for an amber with undertones of citric zest. Dry toffee flavors with a sudden sharpness in bite. A bit resinous and somewhat thin in feel. Another ambe that does little for me. Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Singletrack pours the color of oak that was recently varnished. An aroma of fruit, dripping with honey, along with a touch of dried caramel, toasted malt and hops, that are pretty herbaceous. The flavor profile is malt accented, thin and possesses notes of butter toffee caramel and hops, but they are flowery rather than herbaceous this time. All in all, this is just another amber ale that was designed to be very approachable and they succeeded.
