COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most complex of our beer line-up with a combination of five different malts and four different hop varieties. Buttface has the broadest popular appeal of our beers. It has a high malt character and lack of evident hops. This surprises people because it is easy to drink, but has a higher alcohol content than what is perceived.

Can remember which Ram I had this at. It is a fine amber ale. Not to bad but not to great neither. Serving: Tap

Unibonger (163) - Mount Shasta, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Growler. Pours a medium brown, slightly khaki head with good retention. Very fruity aroma, slight notes of the hops, definitely sweet smelling too. Really mellow flavor, good balance of hops and malt with hops dominating a wee bit, finishes quickly. Medium carbonation, a strange sensation that reminds me of cola, real light body and slightly slick texture.

This is a pretty typical American amber ale, which is the same as saying it’s sort of bland and vaguely malty. The style can be done well but this brownish amber beverage is not an example of that. It is a bit oversweet, medium bodied with mild carbonation. It is pretty much utterly forgettable.

Strykzone (5074) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Sampled at the Indy brewpub. Reddish color with a nice head. Some nice and complex stuff going on here. Sweet spice, nice malt, and some bittering hops. Nothing here is big and a good word for this beer is "subtle." I though it was a well done beer. One to please the novice beer drinker and beer geeks, too.

The all encompassing category of Amber ale does not really define this particular offering from Big Horn. Meant to be a crowd-pleaser this beer does not fall short. Relatively non-existant hops and a slightly malt-forward presence make this a very easy drinking brew. Those same qualities that seem to make it popular are also the same ones that do not really appeal to me. The malt flavor is fairly blah, a fairly sharp caramel and a touch of toast. They advertise the usage of 4 different hop varieties yet they don’t really make a big impression on this beer. Average at best.

Pours a nice amber, not too much aroma, not too nutty. It’s a solid amber. Meh.

Draft at C.I. Shenanigans Spokane. Clear amber, frothy white head. Aroma of toasted biscuity malt, caramel. Taste is also roasty with caramel and biscuit malt. Medium light body, lively carbonation.

Pours a hazy amber brown with a white top. Caramel and toffee notes in the aroma. Sweet flavor but not so much from the toffee. Hops cut the sweetness well though and it goes down smooth.
