Smooth initial flavor, but an odd fruity finish detracts from the overall flavor. Really pretty disappointing - most other Colorado microbreweries are much better. guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Slightly cloudy amber appearane with a small head and decent lacing. Malty, toffeeish aroma. Flowery, fruity, taste displays some sweetness. Not real hoppy. Medium-bodied with average carbonation and a short lived finish. antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Bottle. Pale amber with very little and quickly fleeting head. Aroma reminds me of a slightly skunky cheap amber lager. Has some sweetness, but not a lot of malty flavor. Sourness in the finish. Tastes like I’m drinking it from a can. Watery with a lively carbonation level. Must use a very clean ale yeast, as there is no character there also. I had a Full Sail Amber the other day, and it’s amazing how far apart beers in this category can be. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Light Amber Coloring. Smells of Bad Hops. Burnt Caramel/Malts and Bad Hops. HOW is This Their Best Selling Beer?! Tongues Must Have Been Numb The Day They Made the Recipe. sloth (2923) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Small white head, short lived with a bit more lace than you,d expect. Hazy amber/orange colored brew. Faint malt/hop nose. Light/medium body, watery. Lightly malty, earthy. Fairly thin all around. Finish is dry, quick. Thanks to kaggie97 for the trade.

This is bad. Cloudy, brownish red pour with a thin white head. Strange aroma, sour grapes, oily, somewhat hoppy and basically skunky. Worse taste, strong, metallic, sour grapes, almost lambic like. The overall consistency was good with a good carbonation zing. Bitter aftertaste, but not a good bitter, sour. Pass it up. steview (1037) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 6, 2004
UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 blah blah blah... it tasted good with dinner.

Dark amber color with a smaller off white head. Sweet almonds and caramel aromas. Somewhat grainy and earthy in flavor. Yeah, I know, it’s an amber. Just another one that does little to incite the senses. obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - NOV 27, 2004
Light golden amber with small white head. Malt nose with faint hops. Med weight with a drying finish. Light carmel, malt, and faint hops....Pretty average. Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Pours a dark red/orange, small white head towards the edges. Aroma of Malt and rusting metal. Flavor is malty, and a little spicy. Palate is thin. Thanks to Heemer for this one.
