I enjoyed this one. It places somewhere on the amber spectrum between Killian's Red and Bell's Amber. Nice malty taste with a slight hop presence throughout and on the finish. I can see this being a good session ale as it goes down very easy.

I drank this repeatedly on tap on a trip to Grand Junction and was consistently under-impressed...definitely not highly hopped and the malt did not break through rather than being quite "bready" and neutral, unlike a Full Sail (as one example) that will establish a flavor profile...color was good but I find this one of Colorado's most over hyped brews.

Pretty good for what I find as a typically boring amber ale catagory.

This is a good ale. Nicely hop flavor and well balanced.

Presentation: 12 oz slender brown bottle with raised glass around the neck of the breweries name.

Appearance: Deep golden amber with a patchy white lace.

Smell: Mildy fruity with a malty nose of toasted and biscuity aromas.

Taste: Crisp and medium in body, big malty palate with a restrained hop bitterness that seems to only balance the brew. Toasted malt with a bread crust flavour is the theme, good amount of grain in the finish also. Hint of fruit and yeast adds to the complex flavour.

Notes: Very tasty, good focus on the malt. Great American style amber ale ... very drinkable to say the least.
