Pours dark bronze with 1 finger of medium white head. Good retention and nice lace points.

Nose is sweet with bread malts. Raisin and fig combine with the bread malts for a nice aroma.

More raisin and fig in the flavor with thick chewy malt body. Hops take a back seat here, with only a suggestion of cascade coming in. Mild finish, with a flash of molasses sweetness very late.

Very thick for the style, but works well as a winter beer.

Overall a tasty representation of the style.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a stange. The appearance was a decent looking hazy amber to red color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within seconds. The lacing was somewhat there and slid for the most part. The smell was yeasty and malty with a touch of light cocoa inside of a subtle breadiness. The taste was mainly the same thing. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat subdued and carried a fair rolling smoothness over my tongue. Overall, pretty good altbier I’d have again.

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.
