06/20/08- Had via the tap on my two week Montana vacation.

Presentation- Via the tap into a standard pint glass.

Appearance- Light amber colored pour with a 1/2 inch head. Nice lace patchwork as well.

Smell- Sweet caramel malted scent with a light hoppy nose.

Taste- Very well balanced with the sweetness coming from both the caramel flavored malt and the lemon and orange hop flavors as well. Mildly bready and lightly nutty.

Mouthfeel- Medium carbonation with a slight sweet and hoppy aftertaste.

Drinkability- One of the better ambers I have had. Probably top 5 at that. Brews are picking up at Kettlehouse.

This is a nice light amber. The aroma is very light with just a hint of the malt within. The predominant flavor, yet not heavy, is of caramel. This is another quality beer from this surprising brewery.
