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.
