Tasty, nice hop profile refreshing with nice finish. Not quite enough carbonation though

A - As I began to pour this one I immediately could tell there would be little to no head, so I intentionally tried to finish the pour rough and still could not produce enough of a head to speak of. Looks flat, barely any carbonation can be seen. Is a clear amber/red color.

S - Not much smell, so it makes it kind of hard to rate. Some bready malts and some hops, but not much of either. I would rate it a 3 for average, but there is a slightly metallic smell underneath that caused me to knock this back to 2.5.

T - Again, just not much here. Average at best. Not a lot of hop flavor, not a lot of malt flavor. What is there is a balanced bready malt, so nothing offensive but nothing really good either.

M - While not quite as watery as it looks, it is still average at best.

O - Not horrible, not great. Its alright, but I wouldn't buy it again and wouldn't recommend buying it to others. Plenty of better beers out there that are readily available. Disappointing that a beer named after such a great place like blowing rock isn't better than this.
