First had: on tap at Blue Mountain, Afton, VA

Light straw-yellow color, clear and bubbly, with a thin white head. Light grassy aroma, thin pale malts. Taste of pale malts, lightly toasted grains, crisp but timid grassy hops, lager yeast. A pretty standard Euro lager here, good, if that's your bag. Light body, slightly bitter in the aftertaste. An easy drinker, but not exactly my style.

A: Clear yellow pour that hints towards brown at the center. A few fingers of white head. Retention and lacing are only ok.

S: Sweet, malty smell. Pretty much like you would expect a lager to be.

T: Clean taste. Again, what you would expect from a lager. Sweet, malty, and bready.

MF: Light, crisp, and crazy drinkable.

O: Easy drinking beer, just nothing special.

12oz bottle labeled Best Before 03 2008 (tasted on 2/19).

Poured a deeper golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of general grassiness and some grains. Subtle tastes of grass and some malty sweetness.

Notes from and tasted on 02/19/08.

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.

A - pours a murky copper color with way too much off white foam. It took 3 pours to get it all into the glass.
Lots of sticky lacing throughout the glass

S - balance of grassy malts and hops

T - malts and hops, a basic lager flavor

M/D - I think this is an ok brew from Blue Mountain. Not my favorite, but i'm glad i got to try it. It might have been my bottle, it seemed way overcarbonated and took forever to get it into my glass.

Courtesy of Strykzone. Pours a metallic gold with an off white head that hung in there well and left good lacing. Nose of caramel malts and some floral hops. Body light to medium and palate is clean and crisp. The flavor is well balanced between the malts and hops. Well made lager can be very nice to drink. This is a nice one.
