COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our version of the American Amber Ale style, and is amber in color (of course), medium bodied, with toasty malt flavors, and a subtle hop finish. This beer is brewed from Montana-grown and malted Metcalfe 2-row barley, two kinds of English crystal malts and just a hint of torrifed (toasted) wheat, and is lightly hopped with Magnum and British East Kent Goldings. Easy drinking yet always satisfying.

A-. Pours a clear copper color with white head. Easily drinkable but also flavorful

Draught. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose had an interesting balance - some toasty malty tones coming off of it with a subtble bit of hoppiness. Taste was much the same, striking a nice balance between sweet and bitter there, too. Decent brew.

Draft at the brewery. Beer is a light amber color with not much head. Smell is sweet and slightly malty but aroma is not very pronounced at all. Taste is malty with a light grassy hop flavor. Beer goes down easy, nice sessionable beer but could use a bit more richness in the flavor and aroma.

A decent beer, rather dry but mild amount of hops. Kind of flat aftertaste. I probably wouldn’t get another.

DuffMan (10665) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2012
On tap @ the pizza place in Whitefish. Deep dark golden amber with a pillowy white head thatleaves thick rings of lace. Aroma and palate are equal parts toasty malt and fruity hops with a medium bitter finish. A nicely flavorful amber that would make a great session ale.

3.5
Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Pours clear ruby amber with a thin beige head. Aroma of mild toast, caramel and floral hops. Taste is nicely hopped but with not much bitterness, very floral, bready malts, smooth texture, soft carbonation. Very refreshing and easy drinking.

3.2
oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2010
Pours a bright amber color. Aromas of caramel, malt, and berry. Flavor has a touch of roast coffee taste, some caramel/toffee, and a nice hop finish.

3.2
Berley31 (230) - New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 21, 2009
On-tap at Mackenzie River Brewing Co. in Whitefish, MT. Poured with a very small, off-white head, and a clear, dark-amber body. Aroma of light malt. Not too much carbonation, with a medium-bodied, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is initially malty, but finished slightly bitter. An interesting, if not fantastic amber.
