Poured from a 12oz bottle into a conic pint glass in high elevation Libby, Mont. Bottled last September. Reviewed live.

A- One-finger cream head. Semi-hazy walnut body with moderate clarity. Retention on the head is rather low, only about one minute. Some thin lacing is left when agitated. Decent looking beer.

S- Caramel maltiness, semi-dark fruits. Rich and dark for a red ale. Some earthy hops.

T- Metallic bitterness from the hops, some caramel malts. Rather undeveloped flavor, but not bad.

M- Creamy and surprisingly thick. Nice feel!

O- Not a great beer, but has a nice feel.

12oz bottle bottled the end of february

Look is a deep red/amber filled with very fine sediment. Thin covering of lacy head. Smell is light malt, citrus hops, maple syrup, oak, alcohol. Taste kinda has a dry leaves thing going on, but that is removed from the mouth by a boatload of hops.

A pretty decent amber ale. Consistent and fairly thick bodied tones. It doesn't really give a lot of variance on the flavor, but it's pretty good for what's there. Smooth feel overall. Pretty easy to drink. Not too shabby, but not too memorable either.

A: The beer is slightly hazy reddish amber in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a half finger high beige head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a thin head covering he surface and lots of lacy rings of bubbles down the sides of the glass.
S: A rather complex mixture of citrusy and floral hops is present in the nose along with notes of caramel malts and hints of pine resin hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but has a little more balance with the caramel malts and citrusy hops. A light amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a nice balance between the citrusy hops and caramel malts.
