12oz bottle pours clear amber with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, yeast, toffee, and nuts. Taste is lots of caramel malts followed by some nutty bitterness until the end, roasted and chocolate malts present. Not great by any means and barely drinkable.

12 oz bottle pours a dark, brownish-red with no real head to speak of. Biscuit, toasted malt, a hint of light fruits on the nose. Flavor is more sweet and fruity, with a malt presence balancing it out. Smooth but unremarkable. Zymurgeist2 (2213) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 21, 2011
Pours a crystal clear deep amber. Tan head fades very quickly. Beautiful beer with head retention way too short. Aroma of caramel male follows through with a rich, deep malt flavor. The big malt carries through the entire mouthfeel. Falls off somewhat quickly, but a good beer all around. RSRIZZO (1986) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2007
Had this beer on 6/22/2006. Aroma is rich with a sweet roasted malt scent and fresh hops. Color is a light brown with light carbonation and thin tight head. Taste is full of flavor from malty richness to a fresh happiness. Starting with medium body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish burst out at you with a roasted malt flavor followed by fresh hops and a nice bitterness. It seems a bit hoppy for an Amber, but I love this beer.

Perfect bright red in color. Well balanced aroma and flavor, equally balancing malt and hops and providing flavors and aromas of caramel, mocha, toffee and resin. A pretty good"red" ale.

Bottle. Caramel and toffee malt aroma with some hoppy notes. Pours reddish amber with a thin tan head and very good lacing. Sweet caramel and toffee flavors to start. Finishes smooth and dry with a slight hop bite at the end. Good red, but slightly watery in the body. Beaver (1791) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 21, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a reddish amber with a smallish creamy off white head that retains fairly well and laces the glass.jb43 (1650) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2010
The aroma is pretty subdued- some nutty malts and a little cola and some floral hops.
The flavor is nutty caramel malts with some slightly fruity bitterness at the finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and pretty watery.
Overall, an OK malt forward beer. It’s similar to Fort Collins’ Retro Red. I liked this better on tap.
