Alewife and I swung by the brewery on 24MAY14 for a quickie. She had the Mountain Ale; Hop Session for me....

It was a clear, medium golden, topped by a creamy white head. The foam was fine and tight and left OK lacing behind. Aroma was a mild citrus; pleasant but not too strong. The bier felt fairly smooth, and was almost medium in body.

Flavor had lighty sweetness, with a bit of bready/crackery malt. Hopping was citrussy, with pithy action hitting the palate.There was not a real lot of hoppiness, though, and it was mostly bitter. It was dry and lightly refreshing, though I didn't find a lot going on here.... Not bad....

Poured out of a growler into a pint glass. Spotty lacing and deep gold color. Nice floral aroma, but not quite as strong as I was expecting. Taste is slightly bitter and a smooth finish. Overall its not a bad beer, but not my favorite session ale. I was hoping for more of a bitter taste that never came, but don't get me wrong I wouldn't turn this beer down if given to me or if I saw it on tap.
