Crazy Mountain Amber Ale
(Crazy Mountain Brewing Company)

Crazy Mountain Brewing Company opened it's doors in January of 2010. Their Amber Ale is their first, and only as of right now, beer that they're canning. We love the design of this can, it's so simple yet very eyecatching and altogether unique. That's something it might need to be as it's got a lot of canned competition out there in Colorado!

From the Crazy Mountain site:

"This delightfully floral American style Amber Ale displays a wonderful balance while still maintaining a profound hoppy goodness. We load this beer with a ridiculous and obscene amunt of West Coast hops that are added late in the boil, resulting in a hoppy beer without any bitterness"

Here we go...

Pour - dark, rubyish-red to auburn. Almost reminds me of a rbown ale as this is a lot darker than some of the other amber ales I've seen. The head is pretty tight and foamy. At first I wondered if this was under carbonated but it all came together nicely and left some lacing inside the glass.

Aroma - Tootsie-Rolls, honey, brown bread, pumpernickel bagels, caramel and Fudgesicles. Lots of maltiness in this one with only some faint hints of citrus from the hops.

Taste - lots of those malty flavors come out on the tongue. That Tootsie-Roll aroma certainly is a major flavor component. Lots of caramel malt and again some slight hints of hoppiness but not much in the way of bitterness. Well put together ale with some nice toasty notes and a brown sugar sweet finish. 

Overall - There is plenty of flavor packed into this 12 oz. can of amber ale that is for sure. If you're a fan of a malt-forward brew in this category than this is for you. We could easily find our way through a six-pack of this in no time at all. Crazy Mountain Amber Ale is crazy drinkable. 

Note - a big thank you goes out to Jonathan Cowan and Kevin Selvy. Jonathan lives locally to Crazy Mountain and wrote to us telling us how much we needed to try some of their beer. He got in touch with Kevin, who is a co-founder of Crazy Mountain Brewing Company, and he sent us some cans. Awesome. Cheers guys!
