Poures into a becker a dull light goden with a half finger bone white head atop that leaves a few broken globs of lace behind as it settles.Grainy with a light smack of herbal hobs in the nose but it's pretty clean.Quite dry on the palate with a decent crispness and pretty full feel.A good after work beer and will go good in my homemade German sausage Iam making tomorrow. (374 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle pours a hazy amber with a healthy offwhite head. Good retention and lots of patchy lacing.

Aroma has spicy and floral noble hops with a vague fruitiness underneath. A hint of toasted malt.

Creamy moderate carbonation and a light medium body.

Taste has a bitter and earthy hoppiness that is balanced well by a subtly sweet malt profile. A hint of ripe pears adds some depth. Finishes clean, with a lingering bitterness.

A very drinkable lager. Thanks to mntlover for my first Blue Mountain brew.. (507 characters)

This was my very first offering from "Blue Mountain Brewery" and I wasn't disappointed.

S = There was a slight citrus/floral aroma.

T = Mildy sweet with a nice fruity taste upfront with a hint of hops bitterness near the end. The finish was dry without much bitterness and I was left with a very nice sweet/fruit flavor.

MF = Moderate carbonation.

Overall = I felt this beer was well balanced and very easy to drink. (420 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pale yellow in color, with a slight bit of haze. Smaller white head on top, that dissipates rather quickly.

S: Malty and crisp. There is a very grassy or herbal smell to it.

T: Light malt, some grassy notes form the hops, and a good amount of carbonic bite.

M: Light and crispy. Tons of carbonation, with an almost acidic finish.

O: Overall pleasant, drinkable, and refreshing, but I think I would pass this one by for others in similar styles. (458 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

a: standard pint, the pour produces a bone white head that falls slowly and exhibits average retention, the beer is a clear, light amber in color

s: lightly caramelized pale lager malts with a mild, grassy noble hop aroma, whole grain crackers, good balance

m: carbonation around medium in level with body that's light but not thin, a bit dull on the palate

t: some mild, grainy caramel from a base of pale and lightly toasted lager malts, just a touch sweet, grassy hop flavors, finishes with flavors of grain crackers and a moderate hop bitterness dries things out a bit, good lager if not really a standout

d: easy enough, not quite as drinkable as the style can be

six-pack from the brewery in Afton (708 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a clean gold, about a finger and a half creamy head. Looks like a nice lager should... rather nice.

S: A nice, light citrus/fruit nose, a nice touch of hops in there.

T: Fruity, sweet malt flavours, followed by hops. Quite a nice balance of malts/hops, with a rather hoppy finish. This is a good, straight forward lager, and I'd say it's quite honest to the commercial description.

M: Not at all overly carbonated, though perhaps not too crisp, either. Again, a decent balance, and a nicely rounded lager.

D: Could be a touch high in ABV for some, but I would certainly treat this as a session brew. Quite good for its class, and fortunately, it's a local brewery. It serves as a good respresentative of its style. (730 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Crystal clear and golden to tawny orange in color. A 1 1/2 finger off white head and light lacing.l Decent carbonation.

Rich sweet malt and herbal/grassy hops in the aroma. A bit of earthiness seems almost doughy.

Primarily sweet malt upfront with light grassy hops and faint bitterness. Light citrus lays on the tongue.

Medium bodied and crisp leaving a light syrupy coating.

An easy drinker and rather sessionable. A nice light offering suitable for the season. (467 characters)
