2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a dark yellow with very little head. Plenty of carbonation bubbles up from the bottom of the glass. Very faint notes of honey in the aroma, but unfortunately there is a metallic smell as well. Taste is nothing special, kind of bitter with that prototypical Big Sky finish. Was hoping for more honey in the palate but no such luck. Very disappointed. Only Moose Drool is worth checking out from this brewer.

A: Light yellow straw. Barely any bubbles.

T: Floral with low honey flavor. Touch of sourness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks goes to Ed for this one. The aroma is sweet honey, pilsner malt. The flavor is herbal, earthy, sweet malts, honey, slight cardboard. Not bad probably better in the heat of summer, not when it is 10 degrees outside. Still a tasty beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, showing a hazed gold, almost straw color, a bubbly, white, short lived head, and ribbony cling to the lacing. The nose was light grain, honey sweetness, light esters, and indistinguishable spicing. The taste started with a hint of lollipop fruitiness, then continued with a combination of lively carbonation, moderate, somewhat rindy, hop bitterness, and tartness, that was a little overwhelming for a light bodied, summer/sessionable brew. Went down okay, but not thrilled enough to purchase again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2014 Update: Sweet, biscuit malt. Lightly fruity. Some drier bready malt in the aftertaste. Not surprisingly, I enjoyed this more in June than December.
Aroma: Sweet, spiced/floral. A little fruit and bread.
Flavor: Sweet, light bread malt. Floral and lightly fruity.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a shaker. This beer was just okay. Nothing special about it. I got it as part of a variety pack and would not buy again. Not the best I have had from big sky.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a non transparent yellow color liquid with a faint shade of orange, medium carbonation, white ring around the glass for a head after the carbonation destoryed a finger layer. Aroma of grass, some hops, and rotting beehives- ugh. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt tastes like it was partly wheat, honey throughout the tasting, middle holds up, finish is a little watery. It’s ok- just kind of same ’ol same ’ol.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gold with white head. Smell is muted honey and malt sweetness that gets stronger as it warms. Taste is pretty much crisp malt and honey. Easy drinking but perhaps a bit too much on the honey flavor.
