Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Formulated with Montana grown 2-row barley, northwest Goldings hops, and lotsa love, this hearty ale drinks very smooth. Not bitter at all and not too sweet either. Novice beer drinkers have been known to take a taste and then say, “WOW! That’s not what I expected… that’s GOOD!” A hint of roasted barley lends a slight coffee-like smoky finish. With a 6.5% abv, this beer is perfect after a day of rippin’ lines on area or your favorite back country getaway.

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

A- One-finger brownish head that evaporates pretty quickly. Brown body with low clarity. Fine looking beer. Maybe I waited too long on this.

S- Malty, roasty notes and well-balanced. Mild.

T- Sweet, roasty and malty. Not much to say about it. Surprisingly sweet.

M- Middling body. Fairly wet finish.

O- I wish I had reviewed it fresh.
