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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle - Pours clear amber with a small off white head. It has a mild caramel malt aroma. The flavor is sweet and light with a little caramel. Itís light bodied, smooth, and okay to drink but not worth getting again unless the other options are really bad.

It tastes like the mass produced beer that it is. From the looks of it the roasted malt description is over-stated, brown food coloring fits better. Taste is sweet, slightly sticky, with a flavor just above a Coors regular.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours clear brown with off-white head. Aroma is light caramel, medium body and carbonation. Taste is caramel and toffee. Not bad for blue moon line.
