2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
mildly sweet perfumey arom, makes you take notice. a darker iced tea colored beer with no haze. yes, some sweetness on the first taste too. not too many ill effects in this beer except that it may be a little too sweet, almost cloying but not quite. seems to want to let you know that it is more than 5% in alky content. i guess iím surprized that i havenít tasted this yet but i think i got it mixed up w/another one of a hundred blue moon spinoffs. decent co2, makes this a little more acceptable on the finish.

Pours a copper with one finger of quickly disappearing head. Aroma is malty with hints of caramel and a bit of toffee and spice. Taste is quite weak a bit sweet with a lackluster finish. Overall for an Abbey a poor showing but still enjoyable to drink

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Decent-looking mahogany colored beer with a thin fizzy off-white head. Weak flowery nose with a hint of sourness and spice. Flavor is one-dimensional with a mild sugary sweetness and not much else of note. It has a fizzy carbonation and light mouth feel that fail to add any depth or complexity. Fairly monotone and forgettable beer.

Bottle. Holy crap, could the brewer give less of a rats ass about making this an abbey-style ale? Mild raisin and nut in this, and it isnít offensive, but itís completely half-assed. Whatever.

Mountain Abbey could be worse. Itís simple but the malts are sweet enough. However, thereís one little problem with Mountain Abbey. Namely, THIS ISNíT AN ABBEY ALE. No Belgian yeast. No fruity hops. No dark color. Funny, seems like Blue Moon isnít even trying. Probably because theyíre not. This isnít supposed to be an Abbey ale. This is supposed to make craft enthusiast wannabes THINK theyíre drinking an Abbey ale. Sad thing is, itíll work on some people.

Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins. Pours a reddish orange appearance with a light brown head. Caramel, banana, nutty aroma. Kind of chewy, toasted caramel malty, light candy sugar, slightly fruity, nutty flavor. Bleh.

Decent looking amber colored ale. A very sweet flavor full of caramel, brown sugar, toffee, an nutmeg. A spicy finish that is very short. Too sweet for my taste but nothing really offensive. Calling this an Abbey ale is a gimmick though.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Somewhat malty aroma, still smells of yeast. Clear copper/amber pour from bottle light tan head. Feels thicker than it looks, not great mouth feel. A little pasty after film remains in mouth after swallow. Taste okay, slightly malty, more yeast like the scent. Gets a little better as you drink it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear amber with virtually no head. Malty and grainy. Not very complex. The finish is a bit off with a metallic tinge. Nothing special.
