Picked this up at the grocery store, in a make your own 6 pack.

Served in a bottle so hard to judge appearance.

Smell was not that great maybe even a little skunky

This beer was like the tale of two beers, initially when I first took a drink it was overally bitter, and left a horrid after taste. However the subsequent tastes where very enjoyable, with good even flavoring, and little to no harsh after taste or bit as it was on the first taste.

Over all I like this beer, but will probably not have it again unless it is offered to me. It is nothing spectacular just a solid beer that is worth trying but now that I have had it probably wont purchase again.

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.

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..

This is called a "classic lager" on the label and that's exactly what it is. No frills, just pure clean fresh lager taste. Those looking for unusual additions or spoiled by novelty might overlook this beer, or rate it lower, but it is true to style and delivers what it promises. Golden color with white or slightly off-white head, moderately good size though not too durable. Clean hops over malt nose, could be bigger, but balanced. Taste is straightforward malt with hops obvious but never out of place. Clean mouthfeel.

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

Appearance: light yellow in color with a nice developed head.

Smell: neutral, some slight earthy scent.

Taste: malty and slight grassy hint.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied, crisp after taste.

Drinkability: This lager is pretty standard, but it really did the trick after a day at the beach

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.

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.
