Beer Friday. Born Colorado, Opposite Day Amber Lager


 Hey kids. If you like coming here for the ride reviews and such we hate to inform you that after today's post there will be about three weeks of nothing on here. Not even a scabby music post. 

"What gives Lonebiker!?"you probably yelled out, most likely dropping that five day old cold pizza you found in the back of the fridge as it is a good food accompaniment when one reads lonebiker. 

I am heading to the literal middle of nowhere, a diamond mine 280 km northeast of Yellowknife. Gahcho Kue is the spot where I will be working. We were told the job could be three weeks, maybe a little more or maybe a little less. Yes, I am obviously hoping for a little less.. 

There is a camp with very limited internet so I am not sure on bringing up the Lonebiker Laptop, if I do post it will just be videos so I don't really see the point. Ya I see those executives giving me stink eye and all I have to say is does the world need another Duran Duran video dump?

Born Colorado was on here last week. Mrs Lonebiker unknowingly got this as she doesn't read this here blog (I know right?) Normally I don't like doing the same breweries on a repeat but I am in quarantine until I fly away so the options are quite limited. 

From Calgary, the owner who was born in Colorado is evidently quite proud of this and threw the name on his brewery. I rather like the name to be honest.

It poured a dirty golden hue and had a two fingered head that faded quickly just like my life will for the next three weeks, smells of dark plums and light roasted hops with a odd tracing of new asphalt. The first sip was fine but not memorable. It was a light tasting and smattering of dark fruit. A definite light feel to this. Not one I would knock grandma out of the way to get. 

This beer gets 2 suds out of 5. 




happy Sunday eve
