Glassware: Shaker pint
Purchased: Hotel lobby
Had this on tap on my hotel stay in Denver.
Appearance is a clear amber/brown beer with average lacing. Aromas are malty and sweet, but not overly so.
Taste is smooth and malty, with a nice nut flavoring as well. Some earthy hops are there but this is not a bitter tasting beer.
Refreshing and clean, the brewery's website says this is their best-selling beer. That probably has something to do with the simple and easy-drinking aspect of it. I thought it was very pleasant and went down nice with my dinner.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a clear, copper color body with a thin, white head. Minimal lacing. Crazy carbonation.
Damp grains and light honey notes. Light sweetness. Rather blah.
Lightly toasted malts. Grainy. Fresh biscuits. Earthy hop presence towards the end but is inoffensive.
Smooth and light. Semi-sweet finish. Crisp.
Nothing special here. It's easy to drink and inoffensive. I wouldn't run out trying to find this one, but on a hot summer day, this could be a fine grilling companion.
