Pours thin with a little soapy head. Very thin mouthfeel with a bitter carbonated taste. This is very drinkable and almost tasted like a bitter Coke soft drink. Not really my style. GarrettB (1581) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Summer 2011 - The second brewery on our day of touring Ft. Collins beer scene was Fort Collins. Although in the smaller side (and without much of the identifying ethos that O’Dell and New Belgium ooze) it packed a few gems. In between them were the middling beers, and the Edgar Lager Amber was one of those. My first note remarked on the happiness. Or, as I wrote, "Hella hoppy for a lager." Cashew and a sort of aged pilsner taste permeate the brew, but then drop off suddenly leaving the flavor of mineral water. Not my ideal start to a line up of beers. rhialistic (156) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2012
Pours a clear light amber with small white head. Faint aromas of yeast, caramel, bread, some earthy hops. Taste had the same earthy hops, biscuit, and caramel malt sweetness as the aroma with the addition of strange notes of cardamom and fennel. Medium mouthfeel, dry finish. arminjewell (9584) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2012
Pour on tap at the brewery, orange pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of slight caramel, spice and grass notes, very slight yeast. Taste had slight toffee and spice, hints of grass, slight mineral note finishing fairly dry but clean. adnielsen (10601) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 Tap at the brewery. Clear red orange appearance with a small head. Dull amber malty aroma. Dull amber malty flavor with a slight roastiness and somewhat bitter. Ok to average.

Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an inch and a half thick, frothy off-white head that faded to a bubbly ring and left a good amount of lacing. Malty aroma with hints of toasted grain, cereal, light caramel, sweet nuts, and a faint earthy hoppiness. Smooth, sweet entry with some caramel and a touch of brown sugar leads into a lightly spicy, toasted maltiness that is offset by a very light, dry bitter hoppiness that subsides quickly, leaving a light caramel sweetness lingering in the finish. Moderate carbonation and average mouth feel. Overall, this is a simple, smooth beer that is really easy to drink. It’s simplicity without being dull make for an enjoyable beer. mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2009
Copper color with a medium off white head and a little bit of carbonation. Pale aroma with a hint of caramel. Malty body with a rich, roasted flavor, a trace of caramel and a dry finish. Taste is sweet and slightly fruity. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Pours copper with a thin white head. Smellds of sweet malt and wildflowers. Tastes earthy and crisp with a peppery splash on the finish. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Cloudy amber with a small layer of scum atop the amber goo. Aroma of caramel and pale malt. Taste of caramel with some mild hoppiness. Mild dry finish. Overall pretty bland a joe average beer. 00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2008
I didnt care too much for this one. the aroma smelled bad. Reminded me of milk that is going sour. Flavor was very malty, but the aroma kept taking away. I ended up dumping this one as it didnt appeal to me at all.
