Brewed by:
KettleHouse Brewing Co. (Southside Taproom)
Montana, United States

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Eddy Out Pale Ale has been a favorite of the locals at the Kettlehouse Brewery since 1996. Brewed with a healthy dose of Cascade aroma hops, Eddy Out is a classic American Pale Ale. This style is characterized by a citrusy American hoppiness balanced with a slight biscuit flavored malt character. The light copper color in this ale comes from caramelized malt which also aids in head retention. All this to describe a highly quaffable brew with a crisp hop finish. Great on a hot summer day, or a cold winter day while dreaming of a hot summer day.

Bright copper but certainly not perfectly clear. Good head quickly fades. Ok lacing.

Flavors are certainly robust. Bitter hops and burnt malts. For a pale ale this is certainly out of character. To be specific it's light bready malts followed by pines and general burnt then acidity as the carbonation tapers off.

Pretty good.

Picked up on a whim on a road trip, and I'm glad I did. Very nice beer, with a nice balance of hops and malt. Will be sure to pick up another pack next time I'm in Missoula

Impressed. This beer comes in a god-awful looking can, with a pixelated kayaker looking like she needs to find an eddy to pull out into so that she can get away from whoever captured this moment in MS-DOS.

But you're not on beerlabeladvocate.com, so I'll focus on the contents of the can. The beer pours like a medium bodied amber, head isn't quite as persistent as it could be, but any head is good head, right? The color is a pleasing amber, which really sets you up for the caramel malt and slight grass, slighter floral, and slight melon nose. The first sip takes you way aback, as the kayaker on the can really didn't excite you, and you continue to sip with fervor, allowing all of the complex malt character to play out on your tongue as though blossoming into a full blown gingerbread house in your mouth.

This beer surprised me quite a bit; the excellent blend of crystal malts with caramalt and good old two row really makes you feel like you're having a decadent pastry, with just enough hop aroma and kick to balance it and bring you back to beer-world. I would drink these all day.

Crisp. Hoppy, slightly sweet. Light-medium. Solid beer.
