Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
This is our version of the American Amber Ale style, and is amber in color (of course), medium bodied, with toasty malt flavors, and a subtle hop finish. This beer is brewed from Montana-grown and malted Metcalfe 2-row barley, two kinds of English crystal malts and just a hint of torrifed (toasted) wheat, and is lightly hopped with Magnum and British East Kent Goldings. Easy drinking yet always satisfying.

On tap at Mackenzie River Pizza in Bozeman, this beer is suprisingly good! Quite cloudy for an ale, so appearance gets low points, but the flavor is wonderful. A good balance of hop flavors and malt, with a nice head that stayed and left lace on the glass. I look forward to trying more.

On-tap at Mackenzie River Brewing Co. in Whitefish, MT. Poured with a very small, off-white head, and a clear, dark-amber body. Aroma of light malt. Not too much carbonation, with a medium-bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is initially malty, but finished slightly bitter. An interesting, if not fantastic amber.

On-tap at Mackenzie River Brewing Co. in Hayden ID .nice pitcher with 3 fingers of, off-white head, and a slightly un- clear, dark-amber body although hard to see with such low lighting. Aroma lightly malt. drinkable carbonation nice for a restaurant , with a medium-bodied heft,mouth is creamy.

Flavor is evenly malty,very clever balance ,finished slightly bitter sweet and floral. Wow intriguing interesting, really left me wanting to share another pitcher.
