Served on tap at Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton, VA.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with heavy amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall white head that reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to heavy amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of pale malts with just a touch of grain adjunct malt sweetness. Light aromas of grassy hops.

T: Moderate flavors of pale and biscuit malts with a touch of grain adjunct malt sweetness. Light flavors of lemon citrus and grassy hops towards the finish. Light amounts of lingering bitterness.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly dry in the finish.

O: Very easy to drink and definitely a session beer. Nice flavors and very refreshing.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

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.

Looks like a lager! Straw colored body with slight withe head on top.

Smells like a lager! Very subdued malt aroma with slight hop scent, but barely.

Very bready taste followed by a quick snap of bitterness.

Extremely smooth mouthfeel and completely drinkable. There's no crazy aftertaste, it's not too bland, this is one to keep in the fridge.

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: light yellow in color with a 1/2" head that lingers around a bit.

Smell: hint of grass is all you can detect.

Taste: grainy malt presence with a hint of lemon zest, grass, and a mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Crisp to start, less start to finish. Relatively clean aftertaste.

Drinkability: easy to drink this beer. Not overly exciting, it does hit the spot on a hot day.

Serving type: on-tap

Served in a Blue Mountain pilsner glass.

They tried way too hard to come up with that name. It pours a clear pale straw topped by about a finger of white foam. The nose comprises light wheat and some light citrus hops. The taste holds notes of light wheat, greens, and a vague floral bitterness. The body is light, with a lightish carbonation and a crisp, dry finish. Overall, a decent pale lager, but nothing special.

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.
