Rare treat from Colorado. A coworker's relative brought some and she was kind enough to share with me. Pours a clear copper in color with a light khaki head. The nose consisted of caramel and toasted malt, with a slight ale fruitiness to it. Medium-bodied in mouthfeel, with a slight crispness around the edges of the tongue. Buttery toasted biscuit flavor and plenty of malt sweetness on the front. Texture and taste slides to a grainy flavor in the middle. There's just the right amount of hop bitterness to contrast the malty sweetness. It's perfectly balanced in that aspect. Finish has almost a slight nuttiness to it with alcoholic vapors. This is amazingly quaffable. Probably one of the best ambers I've ever tried.
