Notes/Commercial Description:
Eddy Out Pale Ale has been a favorite of the locals at the Kettlehouse Brewery since 1996. Brewed with a healthy dose of Cascade aroma hops, Eddy Out is a classic American Pale Ale. This style is characterized by a citrusy American hoppiness balanced with a slight biscuit flavored malt character. The light copper color in this ale comes from caramelized malt which also aids in head retention. All this to describe a highly quaffable brew with a crisp hop finish. Great on a hot summer day, or a cold winter day while dreaming of a hot summer day.

look: 2.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Finger and a half cream-colored head atop a pale yellow body. Retention of the large bubbled, active head is fairly weak. Lasts about 45 seconds. Not a terribly appealing beer.

S- Starts grassy, but manages to really pop with caramel malts. Aromatic and appealing.

T- Spicy, some bitter northwest hops. Caramel malt body. Can't complain too much about it.

M- Medium bodied, wet and slightly sticky with a barely perceptible roasty feel.

O- Oscillates from good to bad. Lands in the middle.

Picked up a four-pak at Wolds Valley Market today for $8.39.

Brew poured a light copper with a nice head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose is malt based with a hint of floral hops.

Taste is well balanced between the biscuity malts and citrus hops.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth, with moderate carbonation that makes it refreshing as well.

Overall this is a very well put together pale. I like it the best of the 3 Kettlehouse brews i have tried this week. A very nice APA that is worthy of a shot!

Pour - light golden or straw colored with a good inch of fluffy white head on top and some lacing beginning to streak the inside of the glass. Looks clean and clear and as it should Nice looking beer.

Aroma - lemons, fresh cut grass, orange peel, tea leaves, mango along with toast and honey.

Taste - one sip and the citrusy hops certainly shine. This has some zip to it with the hops really being the focal point and a solid, yet subdued, doughy, malt backbone providing the necessary balance. A little tangy and lemony in the finish. Very crisp and refreshing and just the way I like my pale ales.

Overall - This on leans a little more towards an IPA with it's assertive hop profile. If you like you're pale ales hoppy you'll be happy with this one. Definitely worth picking up and enjoying somewhere outdoors on a warm sunny day!

Would I buy more of it? - definitely. I'd love to get some more of all of Kettlehouse's beers. I haven't been back to Montana since 2000, it's way overdue.

Poured from a 160z can into the ol' trusy shaker glass. Poured a coppyr color with a foamy white head that lingers for a bit. Aroma of citrus with some malt. Taste was very nice: citrus, malt, with a small amount of hop bitterness at the end. This is definitely a go-to beer and I hope to score more in the future.

I have been diddling around with Russian and Eastern European beers for a more extended period than I had intended, thanks to hitting on the concept of markets here in the US that sell beer and Kvass from those regions. It is time to get The CANQuest (TM) back in action!

From the CAN: "Hand Crafted and Canned in Missoula, Montana"; "We at the Kettlehouse love to play on Montana's big rivers. After hooking a native cutthroat trout, or running a pucker-producing rapid, fellow boaters will circle a hand in the air to signal it's time to "eddy out" - catch the next eddy, relax, regroup, tie on a new fly or plan the next big move. River eddies provide us with the necessary time to gather our thoughts, slow down a bit, relax, chill out. Brewed with a generous helping of Northwest grown Cascade hops, Montana grown and malted barley, and pure Montana water from the aquifer below the Clark Fork River, Eddy Out Pale Ale is our straw colored version of a classic American Pale Ale. We encourage you to slow down, enjoy, Eddy Out, plan your next adventure and oh yeah ... pack out your empties! Slainte [undersigned] Tim O'Leary Kettlehouse Brewing Company LLC".

The Crack reveled yet one more craft CAN filled nearly to the brim! What is with this phenomenon? I rarely, if ever, see it in a macro and it happens with a good deal of frequency with micros. Do they want us to REALLY get our money's worth? I am not CANplaining, but it just seems unusual and noteworthy. The Glug went off without a hitch and produced two foamy tawny fingers of head in the process. Color was a deep golden-amber with NE-quality clarity. BUPGOO! Nose had a minty quality, like spearmint or peppermint, along with the citrusy notes that I expected. Wild! Mouthfeel was medium and it struck a nice balance between the hops and malt in the mouth. It was initially more hoppy, but then I began to taste caramel sweetness. Finish was likewise initially hoppy, followed by a wash of sweetness that lingered well after the swallow. This would certainly be a cooler CANdidate, if it were more readily available to me.

Thanks to woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a cloudy golden color with a small head. Smell is rather mild, some hops are present. Taste is of piney hops, not much else going on, no malts to speak of. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and has average drinkability. Overall this is a decent brew but nothing great.
