2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Good appearance with nice head, slightly floral flavor, mild aroma. Too much CO2 at initial taste (sting), settles down to a drinkable ale

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear medium amber. Normal head volume, lacing and retention.
Very light nose of biscuit and hops.
Light body with a texture that has smooth moments. Below normal carbonation with just a bit of effervescence in the finish.
The flavor profile is good, in a lawn mower or session sense, albeit not very complex. You get a modest hop flavor accompanied with a modest pine/rind bitterness over a modest biscuit sweetness with a hint of caramel. The finish lingers with a rind note.

Pours clear copper with a small white head. Smells lightly of caramel and soft pleasant hoppiness. Taste is sweet, caramelly maltiness and slight earthy bitterness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Blowing Rock High Country Ale finishes with a lingering sweetness.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer is a light copper brew with a firm head of white bubbles. Nose is mild pine needle hops and maybe a bit of metallic aspect. The taste is slightly sweet with a bit of hops at the first taste, but then broadening to a cloying sweetness in the middle. finishing to a bit of a metallic bitter aftertaste. Body is lively.

Poured from 12 ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Cloudy orange/yellow color, firm bittersweet aroma with prominent citrus features, small white head, moderate bittersweet flavor--not bad at all, could see this as a session brew
