1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours extremely light yellow in color with almost no head, no lacing and not much carbonation. Smells of floral hops, and fruits. Tastes is severely lacking any flavor at all. Not worth boiling hotdogs in! If you did the resulting oily liquid would have a ton more flavor. This is not good at all.

12oz bottle. Pours clear yellow. Aroma of a grassy hop and a hint of Elmer’s Glue. Flavor is of the bitterness of a corrogated cardboard box. Very nice pale malt flavor. The bitterness seems to be overpowering the rest of the beer.

Straw yellow, moderate white head with early lace. Sweet pale malt, lightly hopped (herbal, grassy), with a mild bitter finish. Maybe this would be better on tap.

Tap at the Mont Lake Ale House.
Pours a very light gold with a modest head. Grassy, slightly sour aroma. Bready malts yield to a mild hop bitterness on the close. Perfectly refreshing even if unexceptional.

Fizzy yellow gold head leaves quickly. Nice bready aroma. Sweet bread, floral and grassy bittering hops in the finish. Not complex, but pleasant and crisp. A nice pils.

Draft at Oregon Brewers Festival, Portland, OR. Small white head that mostly diminished, virtually no lacing, minimal carbonation, transparent, and a yellow hue. Nose was malty,hoppy and grassy. Flavor was mildly malty, hoppy, crisp, and hints of citrus. Tingly mouthfeel and medium body. Quaffable and good given the style which I am not a big fan of. Worthy of a try.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle Pours a hazy light golden witha fizzy white head. Spotty lacing. Light pilsner malt aroma. Just enough citurs zing to compliment. Mild soft malts, a little metallic note and a quite lively palatte. Crisp quick finish. Not bad for a style I have trouble with.

As usual, this Montana beer finds its way into my glass courtesy of the most generous Skyview. A slightly hazy dark yellow beer with a solid grainy nose and a little bit of hops. The grain in the body tasted a little stale and the hops yeilded a somewhat metallic taste, but that was ever so faint.
