Clear deep golden color out of the bottle with a thin off white head. Nose of crackers and a little lemon rind. Actually a very nice lager beer. Crisp malty flavors with some lemon notes, white bread and a delicate bitterness in the finish. Why can’t all lagers be like this? ben4321 (6548) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2013

Aroma: The nose is sweet malts, must, grains, lemon zest, and some bready notes
Appearance: Pours a hazed orange color with an inch of off-white head and some drippy lace
Flavor: The flavor is sweet and malty, there’s a little citrus too, with minimal bitterness
Palate: The body is light, it has a decent feel, a average-plus carbonation, and a tingly finish
This one wasn’t a favorite for me. It’s a little musty, doesn’t have a great feel, and that tingly, lemony finish just didn’t work all that well either. Not bad, but not a winner either.
Bottle poured a clear light amber w/ a small white head slowly diminishing to a thin cap w/ good lacing. Mild aroma of straw. Initial flavor is light sweet followed by a light bitter finish of short duration. Taste is lightly toasted bread and straw. Light bodied, watery texture, and soft carbonation.

June 25th, 2011 - The Fort Collins 1900 tastes, feels and smells somewhere between a crisp, clean pale lager and pilsner, with clear, more distinct notes of pilsner malt. Admittedly, I’m confused, but I enjoy the way it straddles the boundaries between beer styles. Light yellow in color with a shade of orange for depth, and a very clear body, I see why they invoke the image of the crisp, clear Colorado air on the label. The smell is where I first catch the confounding pils qualities, alongside some fresh corn and even a broccoli vegetal quality. It smells clean and inviting, and a taste reveals much of the same. It’s somewhat bitter, and would be unusually bitter for a pilsner, but then it also tastes like it’d be well within bounds to call itself an amber. Suddenly I remember a beer style I sampled once called a classic pils which fits much of the same flavor profile as this. Overall it’s clean with a nice depth of flavor, with only a slight off-taste undisguised by the rigidity and cleanliness of the style. Stldsf1 (616) - Florida, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Nice crisp lager. Easy drinking. Not special but nice on a hot day.

Clear golden color, white head. Sweet, malty taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Sweet malty scent.
Pours a bright, clear orange with a nice, bubbly white head. Bready, malty, slightly skunky aroma. Flavor is light bready malts as well, plus a bit of hop bitterness and more subtle skunk. Very light and mostly crisp, just the skunk throws me off. Know what I mean? boozedude (2228) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Pours copper with a very fruity prune like aroma... Taste is good. ?little under carbonated but well balanced.. Almost more of a fruit beer imo msalm (59) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle. Strong hay aroma, smells like the malt house in my WI hometown. Light amber, sunset gold. Flavor’s got some light grassiness to it. Lands crisp and easy on the tongue. Overall, could be an easy starter beer for someone unacquainted with crafts. Not disagreeable, not exciting. beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Not much aroma from this one. The taste was decent for an amber lager, crisp caramelly maltiness. There just wasn’t much going on other than that.
