tennisjoel (1180) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2005 Malty aroma. Caramel / Toffee, nuts present. Thin lasting head. Decent lacing. Attractive dark red in color. Would be a little better if a little more hops were present, but this isnít too bad. Maybe a little sticky on the palate, otherwise pretty good.

coldbrewky (1428) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle in trade with BeerandBlues2. Pours a nice deep burnt amber with frothy and slick head. Gentle nowe is of Hops over malts. Body is dry and malty with a good coating of hops that diminsish and blend with malts well. A bit of a watery finish but overall a fine representation from Montana. Thanks!

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2008
This beer pours a clear, dark copper coloured body with a thick tan head. Aroma is slightly hoppy with light coffee and a significant amount of floral notes. Tatse is light, but comfortable and satisfying. Finishes slightly bitter but balanced.

thetmaxx (750) - West Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Poured into my 12oz. Powder Hound Glass. Color is light, with a white head that remains throughout the duration of enjoying the beer. Lots of lacing it left along the glass. Lots of carbonation can be viewed. Aroma is hoppy. Almost smells like pine. Flavor Starts bitter, but is smooth, and finishes dry. Mouth feel is medium light bodied, with lively carbonation. Overall a decent beer, but nothing special enough to make it a seasonal. I also found this beer to pair well with a red sauced sausage pasta dish Iím enjoying.

GTAEgeek (1238) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours a bright copper with a small off-white head and no lacing. The aroma is light caramel, apples, lemon, and cinnamon. The flavor is mildly bitter, and sweet. The palate is light to medium, crisp, and sticky. The aftertaste is long and bitter. Overall, this is a good, easy drinking and well made beer.

Quasimodo (217) - chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Hops, caramel and maybe cinnamon/nutmeg in the nose. The taste is like the nose. The hops hit you first and then the taste fades to caramel, malt and subtle spices with a pleasant, lingering aftertaste. The hops donít wreck your palate. This is an enjoyable, well balanced Amber Ale which seems to be under rated and misclassified here. I didnít fully appreciate this one until beer number two was consumed.

cbfobes (2304) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 16, 2012
12oz bottle at 7.2% ABV, pours a clear dark amber/brown with a huge head, I took my time to pour this and it was still four fingers worth of head, aroma has a good amount of hops to it with some caramel sweetness as well, the flavor has a sweet front end with malt and caramel and a slight bitter finish, actually pretty surprised with this one.
