My first taste said...this is a good lager. Nice head, somewhat cloudy appearance(which I don't take points off for) and an overall malt dominated taste backed up my early impressions.
After drinking a couple of more samples, I say this one is well tucked in the very drinkable category. Good show, Yellowstone Valley Brewing!

12 oz. bottle. Pours amber, with white head. Aroma of malt. Taste of grains, slightly bitter. jandd1983 (4689) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Sampled at ESBLS. It poured a clear amber color with a white head. The aroma was of malt and yeast. The taste was similar, not much going on. Strykzone (7797) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Sampled at esbls. This has some nice fruit with a bit of tartness. Malts and yeast. A hintof grass. A nice feel. jake65 (4033) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle: Pours a dull copper/orange color with a thin sandy head. Nose is malty and sweet, lights bits of grass. Taste has much more character than the nose; citrus, grapes, a sweet malty backbone, and a surprisingly crisp floral finish. The finish really helps out as the majority of the taste is very sweet. I can imagine the similarities in flavor to adding wild honey and herbs, but retaining mostly the sweet aspects. I feel like I should give this a few bonus points since my wife liked it… I could really see this being a good base for a hoppy lager or bock.

12oz bottle thanks to Jake65. Pours a hazy amber with some lacing white head. Nose of apple cider, some malt vinegar, a little red grape, some medicine cabinet. Uh oh, infection alert. Tastes of apples, rusty nickels and malt vinegar. Mostly clean finish. No idea what this would be like on a normal day, but this bottle is infected. vomit (273) - Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2013
UPDATED: APR 10, 2013 After suffering a cross-country trek with the family, we arrived at Devil’s Tower. It was true. Imagine my glee as we perused the trinkets in the gift shop, as I spied DEVIL’S TOWER LAGER. I plopped down the requisite cash, and hoisted my prize back to the motel room. After my many sufferings I was ready to pour this down my neck and let my worries fall far behind me. Well, I am sure you all remember the classic scene in "Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind" with the UFO’s plopping down on Devils’ Tower...well do you? Do you? After traveling ONE ZILLION LIGHT YEARS those rascally aliens needed relief. But if they would have had a DEVIL’S TOWER LAGER they would have lit out in a heartbeat and reduced our planet to ashes. The only viable explanation for them lingering as long as they did, is that the locals were getting them all Blatzed up with Val’s finest. And if that’s good enough for shapeshifting reptilian entities from the far reaches of the Universe, it’s good golly-gee-wizz, good enough for me. And you too! That’s how I roll bitches. douglas88 (9795) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a clear amber color. Basic, sweet nutty malts, very clean, almost dominated by grains. Light honey. OK. Sledutah (7977) - Utah, USA - NOV 12, 2012
