This beer is HOT! So smooth and crisp, Santa Fe Brewing Co has nailed this one! Light, malty, and infinitely sessionable. This dark amber hued ale is as smooth as they come and man does the slightly sweet maltiness really come out in the ample body of this beautiful beer. The first one I had was during a long mtb trip out in western deserts and it was the bee's knees for an after ride barley pop. It is so good as a post ride refreshment that these guys have wrangled a solid MTB race squad that is taking the world by storm in the same fashion as their great beers. Come on how can you not love, great canned craft beers and mountain biking? Two of my most favorite things!
Their racers are killing it in the early season races and doing it in style. Check out Macky Franklin, Karen Jarchow, and hometown hero Steven Thompson as they keep it real thanks to the help of some top notch sponsors that make their work easier in this year's season including the amazing Big Mountain Enduro series.
Back to the beer… It can be found in six packs of cans…my favorite deliver mechanism, but you better get it quick, it is only a spring seasonal and soon will be gone! Then of course you can switch it up to either the Happy Camper or the Imperial Java Stout, which we have reviewed in the past or any one of their other beers, which I have no doubt we'll be reviewing in the future.
