COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our “Velvet M-80” is a hefty, dry hopped double-red ale with a nose full of aroma, a sticky mouthfeel, a malty middle and unctuous hop flavors. G’Knight sports a surprisingly sensuous finish for a beer of its size (8.7% ABV, 60 IBUs). It’s brewed in tribute to a fellow Colorado craft beer pioneer and Vietnam vet who died fighting a 2002 wild fire outside of our Lyons hometown. For all the details behind this tribute follow this link to www.N3978Y.com. G’Mornin’. G’Day. G’Knight.

Pours dark amber with an off white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, citrus fruits and hops. Sweet malts, carmel, mixed with citrus and tropical fruit flavours. It has a good bitter kick with a sweet finish. Excellent beer.

lesifflebiere (1747) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2016
Dorée rouge orange, cette américaine limpide manifeste son patriotisme de suite : houblons bleus blancs rouges fruités et herbeux, avec un peu de sucre d’orge. Les saveurs sont sur la même page, avec une importante amertume aux ananas, bien soutenue par une épaisse et collante vague de malts caramel qui lui donne des airs d’Irish Red. Très agréable, bien balancée et, bien qu’un peu convenue, terriblement efficace.

Cannette. Couleur ambrée-rousse. Mousse beige. Arôme de céréale, caramel et houblon. En bouche, assez ronde, notes de malt caramel, plein de houblon, finale amertume moyenne et malt. Assez corpulente mais agréable et chaleureuse !

Can from the LCBO. Hazy medium copper under a long lasting off white head that leaves lots of lace. Nose is resin, tropical fruit and a good dose of caramel. Flavour is medium sweet with a balancing bitterness and a touch of pepper. Mouth is medium and sticky with average carbonation and a chewy fruity finish. Nice 8/4/8-/4-/15

Frothmeister (753) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2016
355ml can. Pours a slightly hazy reddish amber with a frothy beige head. On the nose, resinous notes, passion fruit, grapefruit, various other notes from the tropical fruit family, and caramel. Taste-wise, sweet with tonnes of fruit-forward notes, tropical fruit, burnt sugar, lighter notes of resinous hops, and faint woody malt notes that lead into more sweet malt, mineral bitterness, and lots of fruit and more of the light woody malt in the finish. It’s a little too sweet, but everything else is so damn good that it’s easy to forget. This is VERY good stuff.

Can, BrewDog online. Deep reddish brown colour, bright, white foam. Nice strong red, quite sweet caramelly malt with a nice fruity citrus orange hop bitterness. Modest pine. Not overly bitter - bittersweet. Drinks nicely for abv. Good stuff.

stantheman (953) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2016
From a small can 6 pack bought at Central City liquor store at Surrey Place. A dark amber beer with generous frothy white head and fruity nose. Moderately bitter with big citrus-fruity flavors, and strong malt background. Nicely balanced. Delicious! 4

tfontana (836) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Can pour into nonic pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Appearance is hazy reddish-brown with tons of sparkle, 1.5-finger width foamy beige head with great retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is solid caramel malt backbone with yeasty dough and danky resin. Taste is caramel malts with danky hops, late fruit, citrus and bitter. Palate is medium-to-full bodied with slightly sticky texture, average carbonation and mix of sweet and bitter finish. Overall, the caramel malt mix with danky resin almost tastes incomplete or past-its-prime--there’s something just a little bit off for me.
