Served on draft at the Golden Hotel in Golden, Colorado. Poured a copper color with a thick creamy head with tight white bubbles. Brilliantly clear. Freshly baked bread aroma with hint of hops and fresh brewery cellar. Clean malty taste able to cleanse my palate of the ahi tuna appetizer that accompanied the beer. Plenty of malt body nicely balanced by citrus notes of hops. Very pleasing in the mouth and it finished very cleanly with just a hint of hop bitterness on the back of my tongue. So good that I ordered two more to follow.

Had bottle at Osteria Marco in Downtown Denver. I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by this beer. It was darker than any other Coors product that I have had. Deep copper color with a nice white head. Nice hop aroma, with a good malt backbone and a nice clean lager aroma. The taste was good. Nice clean finish, with a nice bready malt taste and well balanced hop bitterness. The beer is well carbonated and very drinkable. One of the better lagers made here in the US, especially for one of the big 3. A little dark for a Pilsner (the bar was dark so that may explain it). Good beer, cool to try as I hear it is pretty limited distribution.
