look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a pale, clear gold with a two finger head. Nice lacing. Smell is a subtle noble hop aroma with some cooked grain coming through.

Sweet grain dominates the malt bill. There is a bit of biscuit and bread, along with a touch of mild fruit. Candy-like on the palate. A touch sticky. Finishes semi-dry with an appropriate-for-style hop flavor -- a bit of spice and grass. Medium-bodied. Fairly easy to drink. Carbonation is really good and helps lift the bit of heaviness (for a lager) that presents itself mid-way.

This is a style I admittedly know less about but find this overall pleasant and relatively easy to drink. I like the use of Noble hops and it tastes "classic" in a sense and think it runs in the pack with some European lagers. It might work well with spicy food, as the sweetness and body will help cut through and ease the mouth. Really spicy pepperoni pizza would be great as would a Thai green curry.

Blue Mountain produces consistent, decent beers and this is no exception.
