Instant At Home Left-Over Beer Review: Trout Slayer Wheat Ale

HEY: Hey.

HOW’S IT GOIN?’ Good. My legs are asleep.

YEAH? The dog’s on ’em, snoring away.


WHAT ARE YOU DRINKING? Trout Slayer Wheat Ale from Big Sky Brewing out of the great state of Montana. The beer was left-over from a gathering I held at my abode a few weeks back. I’m a big fan of Big Sky’s Moose Drool Brown Ale, but I can’t say that I’ve had any of their other stuff.

HOW IS IT? Interesting. It has a kind of grassy taste that I do not dislike but was not expecting. Once you get past the not unpleasant barnyard flavor, the beer rounds out nicely with a good, pilsnery-yeasty crispness. Not overly sweet with a bit of a citrusy finish. It’d be nice with a lemon wedge. If you like putting bar fruit in your beverages. Which I don’t. Bar fruit is a luxury five-star resort for icky germs in most establishments.

WHAT ELSE YOU GOT? A nice, light-amber color and an ABV of around 4.5% make Trout Slayer a nice little session beer with more complexity flavor-wise than your average lager or lighter beer equivalent.

AW, WHAT A CUTE LITTLE SESSION BEER. I know! Look at the cute little session beer trying to be a big beer but being content with what it is. Adorable.
