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.

12oz can

A) Pours with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Clear amber colored body. No lacing on the drink down.
S) Subtle roasty malt notes. Not very aromatic.
T) Earthy caramel malt. A thin taste profile. Finishes with mellow hop bite.
M) On the lighter side of medium body. Not much carbonation
O) An OK beer. I won't be clamoring to drink this again.

Handsome dark amber color, but brief coarse foam. Some pleasant, slightly sweet malt taste with a nice roast flavor. After that the hops make an appearance and linger long. The malt is mellow and caramel flavored, with a slightly rough hoppy edge to give it some balance. A touch of the leafy and herbal but overall a decent aromatic hop flavor.

Unfortunately, this is nearly dead flat after a couple of minutes, which doesn't add to the appeal. It might be quite drinkable in better condition. From the 12 oz can bought at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins.
