Served on tap at Fort Collins Brewery:

A- Dark red color with a nice healthy head

S- Malt smell, with a nice hop character to it

T- Nice hoppiness up front, but the beer is extremely grainy, so it loses all of its flavor

M- A bit watery, but the carbonation build makes up for it a bit

O- Not a fan of this beer at all, just seems like no effort was put into it

Nice clear orange hue with amber highlights and 2 fingers of still white head. Very subtle nose, perfumey with a little bit of caramel.

Nice but simple. On the lighter side of being medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Some sweet caramel honey flavors balanced by an herbal floral hop. But all the flavors are very subtle and light. Easy drinking, would definitely be a better beer if it was priced along the lines of full sail session stuff but for an $11 dollar six pack i was really expecting a lot more than an approachable amber ale.

This isn't a bad beer, but it's not a good one.
