a local brewery,beaver creek is just a newborn in what i concider to be a growing tradition in this area of wibaux MT.

A: poured into a growler it has a decent amount of carbonation from the pour...typical light amber color with small head that laces fast at the start and tapers off

S: the aroma is of a high hoppy and low malt. some fruit,and earthy tones.

T: tastes of a medium bitterness and grapefruit. the low malt helps

M: high corbonation and again the malt is on the low end. its all hops here

O: this is one of a variety from beaver creek, like most breweries there is a relationship and similarities between their other recipies. but as far as a pale ale, this is not a bad beer. its one that takes a while to convert the mad mass of coors and bud lovers. unofficially I give it a B

A: A hazy yellow with a thin white head-didn't see thr pour, so can't comment much on that-a decent amount of active carbonation. Looked pretty much like a hazy pale ale.

S: Wet citrusy hops dominate, no malt whatsoever. Something sort of funny, almost minerally, that I attributed to the Montana water as well. A good strength, not weak, but not overwhelming.

T: Again, a wet citrusy hoppy taste and no malt. This is what bothers me about so many American Pales, that think that Pale means lots of hops, as in India Pale Ale. This is a good beer I guess, but too dominated by the hops.

M: Light and airy, smooth but the chill on it here makes it maybe a little too biting.

D: Very user friendly, especially if one likes hops. I can see why this was the only micro on tap at a place dominated by Coors and PBR. Not to mention the brewery was down the road.
