I know I had this in 2007 on my first trip to Vail, and probably a couple times since (we were at Vail again last year and it is available here). But I never reviewed this one.

It is pretty in the glass, which is a requirement of this style - the prettiest of brews. The aroma is clean (missing in action). The taste is of an extremely well balanced amber ale - nothing stick out. It is exceedingly refreshing and easy drinking because of this.

Overall, this is a nice, easy, refreshing drink and highly recommended for a session brew.
