Colorado is one of the best states to visit if you are looking to expand your beer horizons. Boulder Beer Company takes the prestigious title of being the first brewery to open in the state post-Prohibition, and it has been brewing up great beer since that day. This amber ale is a fine addition to its offerings with its brilliantly clear body and soft, tan head. The beer has a soft malt palate, and there is a decidedly smooth balance between malt and hops. It also has a moderately dry finish for an amber and a pleasant earthiness in the flavor. Notes of rich, dark fruits are also evident, but minor.
