12 oz. can poured into Willibecher.

A- Clear straw. White head. Minimally hangs on, and not lacing.

T- Grainy, subtle sweet bread character. Hop character is crisp and earthy.

M- Body light and wet. Finishes clean, a bit crisp.

O- For this style and class, and compared t others in that class, I think this one is well done. It is clean and has a nice flavor character to it.

Appearance: Not pouring this one out of the can so... A beautifully crafted light blue label with the silhouette of a stallion in front of a mountain range. To me it asks the question, "ain't country livin' grand?"
Smell: Beer
Taste: Beer
Feel: Light Beer
Overall: It's beer, relax everyone.

Exactly what you'd expect from a low abv pale lager. Not good. Not too bad. But at $6.99 for 6x16, you damn well better believe it'll be in my fridge again and again. Cheers!

Pour a clear piss yellow color with a small fizzy head. Head retention is non-existent. Lacing is very mild. Smells like your typical lager. More like a Budweiser to me. Taste like a very fizzy adjunct lager. Made with rice for sure. Light bodied with moderate to heavy carbonation. Would drink on the river when already drunk and desperate but not otherwise.

In the mood for a "Fizzy Yellow Beer"? Montucky Coldsnack will likely push those buttons. $9 for a sixer of 16oz cans, at 711, on Fourth of July? Sure, I'm in.

It's a basic "American lager", but surprisingly solid for it's genealogy. Don't go out of your way for it, but, fuck it, try it if you see it.

16 oz can from a six pack from the grocery store. I’ve been meaning to rate this, the "unofficial beer of Montana," for a long time. Aroma is corn, vomit, generic beer. Pours clear yellow with a medium white head with good retention and even some lace. Taste is sweet and corny, finishes a bit dry. Not much different than a typical macro lager. Not good, but not bad either. It does what it sets out to do. "It is what it is," as thousands of dipshits say every day.

I'm surprised to see so many people disappointed with this beer, it's not trying to be anything fancy, it's a low-key light logger with great flavor perfect for drinking on a hot sunny day or pounding with your buddies at the ski mountain. This beer is way better then the mega lagers like bud or Coors and it comes with a comparable price. I would recommend totally recommend it as a light cheap poundable beer. My only really issues with this beer is the branding, it's not really from Montana, it's brewed in Wisconsin, not cool...

I don't know. Of the cheap beers this isn't all that bad. Drinking out of the can so I can't accurately rate the first two categories. I can see pounding these on a camp trip though in the mountains on a hot day swimming at a mountain lake. Although there are a lot of good beers canned now. So it would come down to price. Ok beer that's cheap or good beer that's expensive in the can. I'll have to explore this pale lager style more though. It is 10x better than Budweiser.

Poured from 16oz can into pilsner glass
A frothy 2" white head falls rapidly with little to no lacing. Color is clear pale straw, plenty of streaming carbonation. Mild aroma of grain husks and a bit of biscuit. Light and watery mouthfeel with a mild finish. Flavor is thin and watery with some barley and corn sweetness, maybe a hint of hops in the finish. Overall, half decent for a light beer.
