tap at the brewpub - Pours amber with an off-white head. It has a mild, grainy malt aroma. The flavor is sweet with a touch of caramel and fruit. I certainly wouldn’t say, as the brewery description does, that it has "assertive hop bitterness". It’s very mild bitterness. Decent beer, that’s about it.

Four pack of cans packaged on April 28 purchased from King Soopers. Pours a hazy amber with a bubbly white head. The aroma is pretty malty with hints at caramel, bread and earthy hops. The palate is light with medium carbonation. There are biscuity notes with a little earth, caramel, mild spicy hops, and a slightly coppery finish. A few sips let you know there’s a decent amount of hops in here and it’s not just a cheap lager. Honestly not too rough, but not particularly rewarding either.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is medium to dark amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, malt syrup, sugar cookie), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot), with a light note of diacetyl.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Medium body, syrupy/watery texture, lively carbonation.
The sugary nose certainly portends the syrupy sweet mouth experience. Mediocre. notalush (5866) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2014

Soupy-goopy American amber malt dullness (amaretto / marzipan, caramel chew, toffee) with apple / pear esters as seen in so many Oktoberfest "lagers" which never see a day below 60 F. Nutty, woody, peppery and pithy hop bitterness with mothball and ethanol off-notes. Moderately carbonic / acidic and slightly lactic / yogurt-like starchy and bitter finish. Basic Amber ale disguised as a lager. travita (4988) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Can. The look is clear, off white head, and orange copper in color. The smell is weak, grain, malt, bread, and light. The taste is grainy, floral, malt, and ok. jkwalking05 (4731) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 8, 2014
16 oz can. Light copper in color with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of malt, light grassy hops, and light pear. Taste is of grain, malt and herbal hops. onceblind (9419) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Clear copper with a lasting foamy white head. The nose is a bit biscuity with some honey and toast and grassy hop notes. Mild fruity tones right at the front with a touch of pear and yellow apple mix with yeasty toast and bread dough, with a finish of earthy sweet toffee. Pretty neat and surpasses expectation. gmellison (427) - Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Can thanks to wade1point0. Aroma is caramel, roasty malts, fruity, almost like a barleywine even. Light bodied but full flavored, i get caramel, some chocolate,even some smokiness. Dope.
