3.3/5  rDev -6.5%

Picked this up at the grocery store, in a make your own 6 pack.

Served in a bottle so hard to judge appearance.

Smell was not that great maybe even a little skunky

This beer was like the tale of two beers, initially when I first took a drink it was overally bitter, and left a horrid after taste. However the subsequent tastes where very enjoyable, with good even flavoring, and little to no harsh after taste or bit as it was on the first taste.

Over all I like this beer, but will probably not have it again unless it is offered to me. It is nothing spectacular just a solid beer that is worth trying but now that I have had it probably wont purchase again.

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.

3.9/5  rDev +10.5%

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..

Appearance: light yellow in color with a nice developed head.

Smell: neutral, some slight earthy scent.

Taste: malty and slight grassy hint.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, crisp after taste.

Drinkability: This lager is pretty standard, but it really did the trick after a day at the beach

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.

3.53/5  rDev 0%

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

4.33/5  rDev +22.7%

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.

3.39/5  rDev -4%

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.

3.3/5  rDev -6.5%

Poured into a pint glass.

4.0 A: Pours a clear golden yellow color. Two fingers of frothy head. The first finger dies very quickly, but the last one has decent retention. Just a touch of spotty lacing.

4.0 S: Earthy spiciness and grassy hops. Somewhat sweet neutral malt aroma. Not bad.

3.0 T: Soft bitterness. Grassy and earthy hops again. There's definitely some corny DMS going on here.

3.5 M: Light body. Carbonation is a little higher than I'd prefer. Would be smooth, but has corny aftertaste.

3.0 D: Not terrible, but definitely much better lawnmower beers out there.

This is a solid local offering. This is my local Go-To Beer. Pours a Clean straw color with a great two finger white head. smells of roasted grain and fresh hops. Tase it great. Again, it's grainy, mild bitterness due to hops, hops lend a faint piny note balanced malts. It's not overly complex, but solid enough to return to over and over. If you "just want a beer" this is your ticket. This is one local brewery that i speak highly of often.
