Bottle. Aroma of malted wheat, and some citrus. Pours pale straw yellow with a thin white head. A hint of grassy hops on the palate. Medium bodied with high carbonation. Smooth and quite drinkable, though nothing special.

Not a lot going on. I feel like this is barely more than a blonde ale. A hint of spice and a little wheat. Quite refreshing, which is it’s redeeming factor.

It’s always oddly rewarding to drink refreshing wheat ales in the cold months, so I couldn’t resist the urge to crack into trout slayer. I must say, in more appropriate weather, Trout Slayer might be a god send. It’s an approachable thirst quencher with a fair amount of hop character. I liked the pale yellow color, the spicy aroma, and the somewhat creamy mouthfeel. In all though, I wished Trout Slayer was headier and more flavorful. Still, this is a sweet, smooth wheat ale. Though it did not slay my trout, it certainly gave it a nice tickle. That has to be the weirdest euphemism I’ve ever given on this site.

Meh. Not my most favorite kind of beer to begin with. Great brewery from Montana though.

EtTuCthulhu (1290) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - DEC 24, 2014
The color of this beer is a very clear brownish orange with a medium white head that fades quickly. The aroma blends wheat, yeast, earthy hops, and orange peel, and the taste is mildly sour, slightly bitter, and a touch sweet with a purely sour aftertaste. The palate fuses a light body, slick and thin texture, and a soft carbonation.

It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was light and wheaty. The taste was similar to the aroma with crispiness, wheat and a tad earthy.
