COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Five types of malt and easy on the hops. A very different beer for a very different celebration. Available St. Patricks Day till it's gone.

truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2008
12oz. bottle. Muted bronze appearance, with a good head on the pour, which then dissolves rapidly to a light ring. It has a plum/currant/fruit sweet aroma, with just a hint of breadiness. The taste follows the nose pretty straight. Not much hoppiness in this brew, which perhaps makes the malty sweetness a little too prominent. Thereís an astringent effect on the tongue that I find intriguing. Not a typical red.

RSRIZZO (1850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Aroma is very faint with just a hint of malt to it. Color is amber with a slight haze, good carbonation and a very thin head. Taste is light and German. Starting with a light body it goes down smooth with a clean feel. Finish is a mild sweet malt flavor with an easy hop taste and very mellow bitterness. After taste is a very German beer like taste, so much so that if I didnít know this was brewed in Montana I would have thought it was imported. I am not a big fan of German style brews so I donít really like this but its not a bad beer.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle during the ABAís Annual Meeting beer swap. Pours a burnt reddish amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a nice white ring and film. Just some spotty lacing. Aroma of light roasted caramel malt, some peppery spice, some dark bread dough, and a touch of flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, semi sweet, lightly carbonated with flavors of caramel malt and some apple bread character. Finish is semi-sweet with a bready aftertaste that sticks around.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle. Pours deep red with thin white head.. Sweetish malty aroma. Malt sweetish taste Thin but pleasing finish. This is good, but not oustanding

loren01 (4) - USA - JUL 1, 2007 does not count
Pours copper color, good head, no lace. Smell is sweet/caramelly. Nice malty smell. Taste is slightly malty up front with peppery/bitter bite at the end. Also finishes with a good bit of dryness and ETOH. Pretty good beer, reminds me a lot of their amber.

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Malty aroma. No detectable hop. Nice coppery color with a beige head thatís substantial. A bit thin bodied. Starts with malt medium sweet, develops a bit more body, finishes not very dry. Hard to pick up any bitter. Decent drink, if you are not looking for hop.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2006
From the bottle pours a clear amber with a soft white head. Light caramel flavor up front, faintly toasty character shows. Has a mild hop bit to the finish leaving it kinda dry. Much lighter on the palate with a light carbonation.

jimhilt (2387) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Pours a two finger cream head that fades to a ring leaving a little lace. Nearly clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Starts malty, becomes more balanced with slight hoppy finish. $1.19 for a 12oz bottle from Johnís Market Tigard, Or. Best before July 2006 and still okay.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Bottle: Amber hued caramel, mild sudsy off-white head, a few splotches of lacing, very light carbonation. † Malty nose, semi-sweet, seems to be caramel malts and perhaps vienna. † Lightly roasted malt on the tongue, slight breadiness, not as sweet as I thought it would be. † Clean, very low hop bitterness, smooth, somewhat dry, with a pleasant sticky malt accentuated exit. † Light, but still enjoyable. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † I only wished it would be a tad sweeter.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Amber-red with a small filmy head. Caramel aromas with rich malts and floral hops. Some bitter notes. Nicely malted flavors that are bitter and floral. Caramel and some roast. Cloying, though not too bad, bitter finish.
