2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Hazy copper-amber colour, nice frothy off white head. Honey, caramel, some skunky aroma. Unpleasant bitter taste, soft, easy to drink but, well, resistible. Medium body, weak carbonation, not fresh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of light graininess, some slightly toasty malt, caramel hints, some floral hops and light fruity notes. Slightly sweetish malt flavor, a bit toasty and caramelly, continues dry with hops bitterness, a bit earthy. Medium-bodied. Pretty quaffable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice clear amber body with a off white head that had some retention and even less lace. Aroma did have some great malt, mostly caramel but some biscuit notes and some mild hops. Flavor was a little on the sweet side, but not anywhere close to it being cloying. Some citrus hops in the finish. Finish was smooth and light and easy to drink.

Fizzy like champagne, beautiful bottle with amazing wrapper, buy it for the bottle alone, and Montana needs your precious tax dollars. Light, canít get drunk drinking this, prove me wrong.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer of the Month selection - Nice clear amber/red, very faint head. Minimal malt aroma. Some toasted malt flavor follows initial hop bitterness. Thinner palate. Finishes clean. Pleasant but nothing memorable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour is a clear dark amber with a small white head. Aroma is sugary sweet malt maybe a little gingerbread. Flavor is bland sweet malts, no hop presence and a little plastic toward the end. Very watery and bland.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle. Pours copper with small off-white head. The aroma is caramel, catty hops, a little bit of candyish fruit, and some sort of spice (caraway?). The flavor is thin and dirty with lots of catty notes. There is a sort of caramel malt backbone, but itís very muddied and tastes almost like rust, but not as metallic. Thereís a harshness to it that is hard to pin down, a strange organic bitterness. Separate from the earthy hops. Finishes with cherry pits, ash, salt. Very unpleasant aftertaste. I couldnít finish it.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle pours a hazy copper/orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, dough, grain, and nuts. Taste is mildly sweet caramel into a empty fading bitterness. I have the same sediments as matthewjk. BotmC has really sent some crap and this month took the cake. This was a gift from my family and has been a waste of their money, honestly I would have been happier with a case of PBR.

12oz bottle via "Beer of the Month Club" - Of course this is underwhelming because it came from BofMC. Itís off topic, but donít use Beer of the Month Club! You will regret it--even if you get it as a gift like I am. I donít even look forward to opening the box every month because the selection is almost always terrible. This amber is missing on almost all marks and Iím sort of mad right now because I got a box of crap beer and I donít feel like typing anymore.
