3/5  rDev -11.8%

22 oz. bottle tried 20 Mar 2010.

Served in a Lakefront Brewing shaker pint. Very small off white head. Minimal carbonation. Clear ruby red amber color. Aroma is very grainy. Starts bready and grainy sweet. A bit of caramel and honey through the middle. Stale finish, slight hoppy bitter aftertaste. Moderate alcohol.

Quite average, but fortunately lacks the bandaid aroma and flavor that were present in several of the other beers we tried from Crabtree.

It is not in fact St. Patrick's Day today but this beer made me want to do a jig.
I said Amber Ale (looking at the bottle, really? why?
unfiltered it is a dirty dark red rock with a big egg shell foam to reduces to light thin cover with minimal lacing.

the smell is light and you start to explore some bready malt with very little hop.

taste followed medium full bodied bread like malt and with hops swirling in the background, diving in further there are notes of cinnamon and nutmeg and light yeast. the light carbonation tickles the flavors on through.

very drinkable and hard to put down. It is only rough that is not here for the whole year.

$1 off (so, $3.48) at Total Beverage (located on 104th). Pours a three finger tanned head over a hazed light brown liquid. Smells chocolate, fruity hops, dry hazelnut. Aromas blend well, but wrong for the style.

Tastes sour tang with brown ale malt character and weak american hops. Metallic iron. Empty grassy hop flavor accompanied by an ashy from dried out brown malt. Esters are absence and could use a presence to fill out the flavor profile on this beer. Tastes and, in particular, smells more like an american brown ale than an amber.

Light body and mildly creamy mouthfeel. Overall, meh at best.

3.5/5  rDev +2.9%

A: Cloudy red/amber color. Poured a 1 finger white head that dissipated quickly. Laced in light, inconsistent broken rings.

S: Sweet caramel malt and grapes. Subtle hint of citrus and spice.

T: Roasted caramel malts and some light fruits; apple and pear. Light peppery bitter in the finish to balance allows some of the sweet flavors to linger.

M: Medium body. Balanced carbonation. Smooth, silky feel.

D: Easy to drink and very smooth. Not long on flavor or complexity.

3.9/5  rDev +14.7%

22oz. brown bottle with a picture of Saint Patrick Church in Greeley, Colorado.

Pours into a pint glass with hazy orange/amber color. The head is like that of soda where is starts big and instantly settles to nothing.

Aroma is slightly sweet with a faint hop presence. Some fruity quality to it but it's subtle overall.

Flavor is mostly sweet with some red apple and pear to it. Slightly bitter finish with some carmel and toasted malt. There is also some vanilla and honey if you look for it.

Mouthfeel is smooth and lightly carbonated, medium body. Drinkability is pretty good in that it's not too heavy or strong. Not a bad beer but nothing to write home about.
