Pours out a hazy light amber/orange-tinged copper. Thin head. Smells worty, kinda like Grape Nuts. Toast and fruity esters. Taste reminds me of a couple other Colorado flagship brews: has the toasty cocoa of Fat Tire with the big fruity esters of a Great Divide Denver Pale Ale. Mouthfeel is moderate in body with a calm carbonation. Overall, this is far from great, but the characteristics that it shares with the two aforementioned brews gives it nostalgia points with me.

Extremely malty, great nose for an Amber!! Light in hops in my opinion.

12 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, biscuit, toast, light roast, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/floral hops and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, light roast, floral, grass, slight pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, citrus zest, caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance and solid robustness of citrus/floral hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a pretty solid amber ale. Good balance and solid robustness of citrus/floral hops and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A fairly enjoyable offering.
