At Beartooth Cafe, Cooke City. Pours clear dark golden with a minimal, off-white head. The aroma contains hops, fruits, honey, grass and malt. It tastes medium sweet and medium bitter. Smooth clean finish, not too dry and rather malty. Medium body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Enjoyable but lacking a decent IPA punch.

A mate introduced the concept of a shower beer to me a couple months back.I, along with our other beer nerds, was astounded at the prospect. Tonight, having put the kids to bed and wanting both a shower and a beer before dozing off myself, thought of the shower beer and made it a reality. The location made this beer cooler, but it didn’t make it a winner. The aroma is orange rind and papaya and is very sweet. The taste is more akin to those little hard candies I get at christmas time. All in all, okay, but not fantastic.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 12 oz bottle. Aroma is floral, fruity (berry, citrus), caramel, ginger ale. Pours hazy new penny copper with a thick bone-white head with good retention and some lace. Taste is sweet, mildly bitter. Mouthfeel is a little watery. With that ABV, those IBUs, and that mouthfeel, it seems more like a straight pale ale. Kind of boring whatever it is.

Pours a hazy copper color with a short lasting white head. Aroma of malt with a hint of caramel. An unpleasant malt taste with a dry medium body. A funky malt finish.

Bottle from Marcus. Pours orange gold with a white head. Aroma is floral. Med body or so. Flavor is an odd sort of cooked pale stone fruit with some slightly roasty malt and after notes of diacetyl. I don’t like that. Not a terrible beer, but for me it’s not too enjoyable.

marcus (10671) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle from my friend Bob. Pours light amber with a thick off-white head and a faint citrus aroma. There is a light pale malt flavor with a moderately bitter finish.

Other than the looks, this is subpar. It’s dominated by bittering hops without bring that bitter. A bit tinny. Bad finish, very metallic.

jgb9348 (6480) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Nice copper and bronze glow to a thinnish, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of earth, toffee, pears and apples and a bit of very mellow english or low a.a. hops. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong earthy and biscuity malt flavours with some caramel and toffee and a touch of light herbal hops and a touch of grass coupled with some sweeter elements on the end, but nothing too deep or strong either way. Aftertaste is rather bland with only a touch of biscuits and earth and a little hop bitterness, but not much. Overall, not such a great beer, which is too bad, because the name and beer bottle are nice, but that’s the way it goes. Definitely not worth carting this all the way from rural Montana to Washington then up to Maine, but still, neat for me to try. However, if you are based out West, there is no real need to sample this one at all. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Vintage Cellars in Great Falls, Montana on 20-June-2016 for US$1,75 sampled in my hotel room here in Portland, Maine on 29-July-2016.

12oz pour from tap into shaker at the Porch Public House in Hayden, Idaho. Orange, clear, great head. Medium body. Citrus sweet taste with a mild bitter finish. Nose is dank
