The Fort Collins Brewery is, not surprisingly, in Fort Collins, Colorado. This is their 5.3% ABV red alt ale.
The beer pours amber and red in color.
There is almost no head, what little there is has a very light tan
color. The aroma is mild, malty, caramel, very light toffee, light
plum. The taste follows the aromas, adding in some nuttiness. The
beer drinks easy, soft, with a tingling of carbonation. The finish is
dry with light to moderate bitterness. Mild, malty, and enjoyable.
Had this back in 2011: This beer pours dark brown and ruby, but translucent. There is a quarter inch of off-white head that leaves light to medium lacing down the glass. The aroma has roasted nuttiness, a touch of caramel (slightly burnt) and some dark fruits. The taste is very malty, slightly sweet, fruity, very nutty, with a bitter edge on the finish.
