3.12/5  rDev -12.6%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle with clearly marked freshness date. Brewed to 13P, hopped to 22 IBUs and lagered six weeks at the brewery. Nice clarity on the pour yields an amber hue reminiscent of a marzen, with moderate carbonation and an inch of frothy head that leaves some wisps of lace. A bit fruity in the nose, vegetal, with perhaps some caramel and hops. Tastes toasty (Munich or Vienna malt?), with a light fruitiness, and some green hops that impart a mild bitterness on top of a light and dry body. Not too bad; could be a bit more fresh (was in the back of the fridge), but reminiscent of a Vienna lager. Worth a try when down in Virginia. (635 characters)

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)

3.53/5  rDev -1.1%
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)

4.3/5  rDev +20.4%
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)
