3.78/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Poured from an oddly shaped 12oz brown bottle into a pint.

Pours a dull copper with a slightly tanned head. Head is light, frothy, recedes quickly but never disappears entirely. Nose is biscuity malt, which this seems to be renowned for, with an earthy quality to it. Taste is again (pleasantly) murky biscuit malt with a very, very, faint fruity quality. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, not really a major infraction. This is something of a icon here in Colorado; therefore, at any major event here there's a good chance this will be available to save you from the usual macros you'd be forced to endure. While there may be better local brews this has served me well at more than a few concerts and sporting events, so drinkability is a definite high note.
