Attractive light golden amber with a quite decent head in the snifter. Sprightly in the mouth. Faint beery aroma. More than adequate carbonation.
Tastes like a Pilsener at first sip. Just a touch of malt, though there are some roasted grain notes in the background. Interesting gummy, resiny tang. Hints of butter. Herbs in the back of the mouth. A mineral tang. Bitter finish adds a substantial note.
A very light brew. For a beer so close to the four percent mark, it provides a pleasant quaff. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Wilbur's Total Beverage in Fort Collins.

Pours out to a limp head but with decent lacing weirdly enough. Color on the light side of style. Aroma is caramel malt, yeast and faint hops. Flavor is doughy, biscuity, buttery and malty with a hint of cheesy hops in the finish. Mouthfeel is crunchy and co2 is ok. Overall, kind of weird and not what I was expecting. Of course this sample may be past it's prime.

Pours a golden orange color with a soapy white head. Retention is good, definitely has staying power. Smells like yeast and bread, with a mild tea like hop aroma. In the flavor, mild earthy hop, a bit of lemon, and crackery malt notes. Kind of like an English pale ale, but a lager, as there is a bit of toffee behind the stewed hop flavor. Just a hint of butterscotch. Bitterness is mild but with good balance. Medium bodied with a yeast slickness. Overall, decent brew, not really amber, but good.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.
Look: Light amber color. Off white head recedes to a wisp, light watery lacing.
Aroma: Faint bready malts, some sweetness, more hops in the end.
Taste: Very faint caramel sweetness, some bready notes, then a more piny, hop finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.
Overall: Not much in the way of caramel sweetness but it is balanced.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Pours medium dark amber, mostly see through. Touches of foam remains after fast fizzy carbonation. Bready caramel nose jumps out of the glass. Taste is a sweet caramel. Sweetness hangs around. Pretty good amber.
