3.78/5 rDev +5.3%
Brewed about three hours south of where I had it, the Whole Foods in Vienna, Va.
Poured into a standard pint.
Slightly yellowish orange amber color, little head or lacing.
Smell is faint, OK.
Taste is more hop-forward than expected for this style (but not from this brewery),;mainly citrus, only a litte bitter. Balanced with adequate malts.
Overall a good, drinkable beer.

a: shaker pint serving, nutshell brown with a coating of white carbonation showing decent retention
s: dominant aromas of heavily toasted malt give a nice nutty, slightly sweet character, autumn tree fruits -mostly red apple, grassy hops
m: carbonation around moderate - appropriately lively but still smooth, body medium but retaining a crisp feel
t: nice combination of flavorful, nutty toasted malts and a clean, refreshing lager base, a balanced maltiness leaves this one lightly sweet with clean fruit flavors, hops grassy and light impart a nice cleanliness the the finish
d: easy - a flavorful lager with plenty going on to keep things interesting, nice balance for a malty lager, it's tasty and well crafted as are most offerings from Blue Mountain

Lovely golden amber color. On the nose- rich malt and barley with a caramel overtone. Leaves a slight lace on the side of the glass. Lively and rich, extremely drinkable with a nice complexity that prevents it from being boring. One of the better VA session beers that I've tried. Purchased a growler on draft to go at The Wine Seller.

Served on tap at Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton, VA.
A: Pours a crystal clear dark copper in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and just a hint of garnet red highlights. The beer has a half finger tall light beige head that slowly fades to a large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of light fruit malty sweetness (apple and pear) with some floral and herbal hops.
T: Moderate flavors of toasted malts which give it a slightly nutty flavor that combines with the light fruit malt sweetness (apple mostly but a touch of pear as well). There are light amounts of floral and herbal hops that contribute a light bitterness which fades quickly.
M: Just shy of medium bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Now I need to state upfront that I have been to Dusseldorf and visited and tried all of the altbiers available there which probably has made me a touch overly critical of the style. I think there was an excellent balance to this beer with the upfront sweetness and light bitterness in the finish. Definitely an enjoyable beer.
