Poured from a bottle: Nice, rich & nutty aroma. Copper-colored with ruby edges. Decent tan head that settles into a good lacing. Initial taste is nutty toffee followed by mild hopping. Full mouthfeel and "just right" carbonation. This brew is very good. mobrew (19) - Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2005
This has a very nice ruby color along with flavors of carmel and licorce. the hop bitterness is only slight and makes this a very will liked and easy to drink brew. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 6, 2005
Pours a dark amber. Aromas of malts/toffee/spice. Flavors of malts, caramel and some backend hops. tennisjoel (1496) - 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 isn’t too bad. Maybe a little sticky on the palate, otherwise pretty good. shadey (2171) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Dark ruby color with a thin creamy white head. Doughy aroma and flavor. Smooth mouthfeel and a clean finish.

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.

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. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2008
bottle. pours a deep copper with a thin white head. aromas of caramel. nice medium body surrounds the palate with more caramel and some smooth sweet malts. a bit warming and overall very enjoyable. A really nice beer from a great brewery. GTAEgeek (2502) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, 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 don’t wreck your palate. This is an enjoyable, well balanced Amber Ale which seems to be under rated and misclassified here. I didn’t fully appreciate this one until beer number two was consumed.
