Poured from a growler into a pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Coppery color with a nice lacing and head. Attractive looking brew.

S- Subtle aroma, but warm and inviting. Some citrus and tropical fruits.

T- Surprisingly watery taste. Citrus and mellow. Not bitter at all and a very low alcohol profile. Highly sessionable beer.

M- Watery feel.

O- Part of an IPA tasting, with growlers coming courtesy of Nate, the sales rep at Flathead. Good seasonal beer with Galaxy hops. I did enjoy it.

Stumbled across this small microbrewery and tasting room on our recent trip through Montana and had to sample each of their 3 offerings. Served in a logoed Flathead Lake pint glass, had a nice coppery golden color, short white head. Clean, crisp citrus hoppy smell that mirroed its flavor. Well balanced malt kept the hop bitterness from taking over. Very tastey, could easily be a favourite session beer, and a nice fit with their other offerings of a scottish ale and a porter. If you are headed past Flathead Lake, definatley worth a stop.

Just checked the website and see they have added a Steam Ale and a Winterfest to the lineup
