22 ounce bomber. Hadn't had this in a while; figured it was perfect for LeBron's return to Cleveland.
Golden, honeycomb color. Two-fingered head that seems to be dissipating fairly quickly, leaving minimal lacing.
Almost no hops to speak of. Malty undertones. Fairly plain, all things considered.
I think this beer is pretty overrated. I hate to say that, and I really do like almost all of New Belgium's offerings. This style of beer just isn't for me.
Whatever. I'll drink up and watch LeBron.

Looks fantastic. It is a perfect coppery-reddish amber I look for in an amber ale. Soft white foamy head dissipates soon after. Smells like a great amber as well, somewhat modest with a sweeter scent. Not too much of a punch in the flavor however I find the mellow quality desirable. THere is a bit of an alcholic taste at first then dies down to a numbing sensation. Mouthfeel is incredible. Full thickness of the amber brew lingers in my mouth.
Had this beer had a better flavor, I would raise the overall score. As is, this beer rates a 4.25-4.5...Since it was room temp when I reviewed I will give it a 4.5.
Impressive ale here that I will enjoy again and again.

I first had this from the bottle and though it was a decent beer, it was nothing to recommend to a friend. Then I went to my local Irish Pub, with the intent of having a couple Guinness with lunch, and found they had this on tap. I ordered one.
The head was minimal, but the appearance was a nice amber. The taste had a bit of hop but finished sweet. I'd describe the flavor as hoppy bubblegum. Surprisingly, I liked it. It was much better on-tap than from the bottle. I liked it so much I had another and never got to my Guinness (Sorry Grandpa McBride).
Serving type: on-tap
