Review: Big Sky Brewing Co. Montana Trout Slayer Ale
Does one really “slay” a trout? I’m not much of a fisherman (and it turns out “Trout Slayer” has a long history which I’m not going to begin to go into), but this is indeed as close to a “gone fishin'” brew as I can fathom.
It’s a very light wheat ale, starting out with a nice level of bitterness and then fading into a sweet, apple-like character. It’s not particularly wheat-like, but it’s there if you look for it. Very smooth and clean, this beer may not overwhelm you with complexity, but, hey, you’ve got fish to concentrate on.
