From Jul 2007

Purchased at Wilbur's Liquors in Ft Collins as part of a mixed 6 Pack.

It pours from 12oz can a very nice clear deep amber with a very large head of billowy foam that shrinks slowly leaving a fine broken layer.

The smell is very floral and borders on chemical-like. Not a good nose in my book.

The taste on first sip has some caramel malt that is semi sweet and. there's something odd here....after the swallow, I smack my mouth and I get a really foul taste. Tastes like..umm...ashes???
Yucky yuck. I've taken about 3 mothfulls and that's gonna do it for me. The rest is going down the drain. :^( As a side note, the can has these numbers on it: 6 04 04 A 1 B A. If this was canned in 2004 asw the numbers may suggest than...it's sad that this one was still in circulation but I have to say, I've been to Wilbur's many times and this last visit was the first occasion that I saw this beer. Anywho, I can't recommend this one from the experience I'm having...

Clear deep Amber hue under a bubbly rocky ivory head. Very faint aroma of Amber biscuit. Smooth and crisp flavor that’s very minimalistic. Slight doughy biscuit and Amber malt but offers a smooth body and super gentle sweetness. Not complex flavor but very clean.

Originally rated on 9/12/08. Pours a decent amber hue, thin tan head, medium carbonation, fair laceing left. Aroma of toasted malts and slight hints of friut. Flavors of toasted malt kinda mellow. Overall a little above average lager, not too bad."

Tap at the Brewery. No head and poor lace. Loads of caramel aromas. Clean and fresh. A little fruity. Mid weight. Maybe a little short.
Simple beer but pleasant.

Can. Clear amber beer with a large white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, bread, herbs, vegetables and hay. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, herbs, strawberries, hay and grass. Well balanced.

Toaster maltiness, mildly sweet, really soft on the palate, pretty orange color. Very good. I like this more and Anchor Steam.

Grand Junction, Co - College Liquors - 12 oz can. Medium copper pour, initial bubbly off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma is pretty much neutral, a touch of bubble gum. Flavor has some nuttyu accents, a touch of dates and raisin sweetness, hints of toffee in the back end.

12 oz can from Tipsy’s into a pint glass. Amber and clear appearance with a beige head and light lacing. Mild aroma of toffee, caramel malts, toasted grains, light hop spice and light bread. Similar flavor, moderate sweetness and light spicy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with soft carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel and a pretty clean finish. Pretty straight-forward and easy drinking amber lager.

From can poured into a pint glass. I really like this. It's not very bitter and has a nice malty flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2014
12 oz. can. Appearance: finger of white head, diminishes quickly, clear, amber/copper color, .Aroma: bread, caramel, wheat, resin, floral, slight citrusy zest. Palate: light-medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, metallic and bitter finish that lasts, watery. Taste: nice full body malt taste with a mellow hoppy bitterness at first, giving way to much less pleasant hoppy metallic taste. Overall, like the look, but the metallic and watery sensations did this beer in for me, not a fan really.
