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.

MAN’S BEST FRIEND, AM I RIGHT? You sure are.

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.
