Cold Hop (bottled) - 3.5

Cold Hop
"British-Style Ale" (whatever that means--it drinks like an American Pale Ale)
Boulder Beer Company
Boulder, CO
Alcohol Content: 6.5%

The sweetness of this beer is too intense on the finish. It kind of tastes like someone slipped some Splenda in my beer. As pretty as this beer looks, it's a tad disappointing to taste.

Surprisingly sweet, a bit like toast with orange marmalade with a decidingly floral aftertaste. Bright, with a golden/orange color and opaque head. Not bad for a change of pace, but I don't think I'd drink it every day.

The sweetness is quite distinctive--almost makes me forget it's a beer! Not used to the heavy carbonation though, which is kind of a turn-off.

I disagree.

I've never tried Colled Hop Beer, but You do suck.

Well Jon sucks anyway.

Carry on, Gentlemen.

Ha- well I don't know about this beer. I just know this was my birthday. So I'll comment on the nasty rum Jon bought me. It's puke-tastic! :)

Love you guys,
