Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2004
Aroma of caramel, lightly toasted grain, herbs, dandelions and wet grass.
Soft palate. This is a marzen style lager, if I am correct. Not a lot of solid flavor to identify with. Sweet malt notes, some fruitiness. The finish is mildly herbal with some almond and cardboard notes. Not a whole here. The total lack of bitterness made this cloying. Beaver (1821) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2004
The Edgar pours a clear amber with a fine off-white head that quickly goes to a collar.Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Its aroma is sweet, grassy, caramel malt with some subtle hops.
The flavor is sweet, caramel malts with a subdued metallic bitter hop finish. It almost seems a little smoky as well. As it warms more toasted caramel comes out. The mouthfeel was kind of acidic and harshly carbonated.
Overall, not bad but not very exciting either. I remember more fruit notes when sampling this at the brewery.
Pretty basic, and not too much different than the Doktor. Still a well balanced and drinkable lager, not over the top or skunky. GarrettB (1618) - 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. jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2006
From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a blurb about the lager on the side of label, no freshness date. Made a good appearance, poured a chill hazy amber with a foamy, bubbly topped off-white head that settled into a semi-sticky, bubbly thin lacing, highly carbonated. To the nose, it had a earthy, fruity aroma with an underlining toasted grainy maltiness. Some musky notes as well. A slick, carbonated light bodied mouth feel, average drinkability. Had a strangely sweet taste, veggie and berry, a buried toasted maltiness and a earthy bitter finish with an unpleasant subtle veggie and metallic aftertaste.

Almost sorta nasty with funky flavors and aromas going on. Barely drinkable and what the heck? waolsen (1376) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2006
tap. very clear amber. descent white head. hops and malt aroma. orange and a bit of cherry. strong malts, grasses. grainy finish. luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 31, 2005
This beer pours a clear, dark amber color with a small, mostly diminishing head with a tiny bit of lacing, Aromas include a beautiful, big fat, sweet blast of roasted malt, brown sugar, and sweet cookie. The flavor starts moderately sweet and ends in a long, lightly sweet finish. The palate is thin-to-medium with a watery texture and soft carbonation. glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2006
On tap at the brewpub. Brown with a medium head. A decent Amber. One of my least favs at this place. biznizness (1128) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Thought this was actually pretty good. I love this style of lager. Malty as balls. Will probably buy this one again.
