Amber pour. Yeast roll aromas followed by light hops and stone fruit. Flavor is sweet, malty, golden raisins, and apricot. onceblind (10113) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 1, 2011
Rustic copperish hue, with a small white head. Aroma of big toffee and a certain creaminess. Taste was actually pretty wheaty, with sweet caramel and amber malt tones. Nothing much on hop flavor, just enough bitterness to get by. A big meh.

Pours reddish with white head, aroma has notes of slight pine, caramel, some earth and spice notes as well. Pretty simple but clean tastes, notes of bitter pine and grass, some biscuit, toast, slight bit of caramel, finishing slightly bitter, dry. Easy drinking.

Grand Lake, Co. - on tap at Sagebrush BBQ. Medium copper pour, decent white head. Sweet aroma with hints of caramel. Flavor has some of the same caramel essence to it with a bit of a nutty back end. Decently thick mouthfeel. Somewhat solid. Went well with the sausage I had for dinner. Ernest (7748) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2007

On tap at the Arvada location. Red and clear appearance with a diminishing white head. Notes of caramel, toffee, toasted grains, rich malts and light earthy hops. Mild bitterness and mild sweetness. Nicely balanced and pretty easy to drink. One of the better offerings here IMO. RobertDale (6650) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 18, 2012
