Poured from an 11.2 ounce Euro-brown bottle into a shaker pint. A moderate pour produces about one inch of a creamy, pale tan head that proves quite sticky. The color is a deep copper with high carbonation.

I perceive that old familiar aroma of minerals and faint, tea-like hops that distinguish many of these beers from the Brittanic isles. The flavor is malty and a little sweet but with a fairly dry finish. The malt tastes of caramel, but hints of a honey-like quality can be detected as well. The body is medium thin and lager-like, but with a creamy mouth feel from the head and carbonation. A little bit of grassy hop bitterness settles on the tongue.

This is a fairly light, sessionable and refreshing beer but with a good deal of flavor. Nothing special, but nothing overbearing or off-putting- just an all around good beer. Bought as part of a six pack for about $8.50 (on sale) at Hennessey Market in uptown Butte. Believe it or not, this is a fairly rare beer to find in these parts.
