3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up single 16-oz can at the brewery’s taproom in Missoula, Montana. Pours a haze brownish amber brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissolves to a fine film and ring. Aroma of mostly toasted multi-grain malt, a touch of grassy hops and pear fruit. Taste is lightly carbonated, medium bodied with mostly multi-grain flavor and just a hint of bitterness. Finish is light, slightly watery, a breakfast cereal aftertaste with a good balance of bitterness.

Canned. Not very good at all. Cloudy brown appearance, which is probably its best quality. Flavor has very light malt and unfortunately some metal.

A can, courtesy of Skyview. Dark amber color with a thick head. Small malt aroma. Fairly malty taste without going too sweet. Just enough hops to make you notice. Simple, good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber with an off white head and nice lacing. Toasted malts with a small floral hint. Blended well. Flavor follows suit fairly well. Not much difference. Good mouthfell and a pleasant finish.

Draught at the Brewpub: Hazy amber color, thick head, lots of lacing. Nose of fruity sweet malts blended with some tangy hops. Decent. The flavor is chewy, little flavor or umami but it’s decent.
