COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Behold the subtle power of a beer whose simplicity of elements belies its complex spirit. Pilsener malt, noble Hallertau hops, lager yeast, and deep well water. By scaling up these simple ingredients we’ve turned the German pilsener "imperial" and made one of the world’s most refreshing styles of beer bigger, rounder and even more enjoyable.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Sampled on draft at the 2nd annual Virginia Beer Festival at Capital Ale House Midlothian. Pours a clear golden color with a thin head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of grainy malts with strong earthy, spicy hop notes. Taste is very bitterly hoppy with spicy notes. Also fruity peach notes and caramel. Full bodied. Blue Mountain impresses.... again.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014
750 cc from Whole Foods. Pours heavily effervescent gold with 3-finger frothy white head. Nose is pale malt, hops, caro syrup. Tastes somewhat sweet, with honey and sugar syrup notes, pale malt, heavy hops, and a complex finish. Starts and stays somewhat hot. Not a technical masterpiece by any means, but an interesting example of this style, and a well above average beer to get you to your limit tonight.

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle, caged and corked. Drowning my football sorrows. I love the artwork on the bottle. Pours like an imperial pilsner should, I suppose ... deep golden, slightly hazy, with a giant, firm head. The nose is sweet and slightly lemony-citric. This drinks exceptionally smooth, easy to gulp, little to hint at some 7.6% ABV. Full-bodied for sure. This is some really good stuff ...

jredmond (5624) - Manhattan, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2012
Sampled and then thrown (unintentionally) thrown on the floor. I cant believe this beer is rated so high. Pots a clear yellow golden body with thick white head. Aroma is reminiscient of lionshead. Mouthfeel is thin and grainy with notes of a cheap pale, grainy lager. Bland. Eh.

TheBeerGod (5336) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle - 750mL corked and caged.Hazed gold with a tall, dense white head. Aroma is sweet and malty with flora and grassy hops, fruit notes and soft funky yeast. Doesn’t really smell like a pilsener or an imperial pilsener. Kind of smells like a Belgian beer or at least uses a funky Belgian yeast. Taste is sweet malt, toasted grains, soft honey, dusty yeast notes, grassy hops, light floral notes and fruit notes. Body is medium with a strong, dense carbonation. Finishes with more sweet malt notes, fresh fruit, floral hops, grassy notes, light biscuit malt and dusty yeast. I’ll rate the beer as it is irrespective of style.

Pale yellow pour with white head. Light floral hops and malt on the nose. Sweet start with a nice floral bitter finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Decent drinker

dmac (4206) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2013
750ml bottle from Spirits Red Bank. Poured s chunky orange body with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma was big and boozy with wet dough, grapes, wet nut shells, old wet grains. Full bodied with a boozy finish and lots of chewiness and heat along with strong carbonation. Flavor isnt much different than aroma, booze, wort, grains, and grapes. Not a good beer and definitely not good for the price.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Location: Draft at Amity Hall, 9/27/13

Aroma: The nose has some earthy hops, grass, spice, grains, some citrus, and floral notes
Appearance: It pours a hazy golden color with a decent sized head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is well-balanced, malty, grassy, earthy, and grainy, with some fruity notes
Palate: The body is medium, it has a crisp feel, average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this one was really quite enjoyable. I’ve been pretty impressed with Blue Mountain lately. Between the likes of Hardywood, Blue Mountain, Devil’s Backbone, and the classic Legend (among others), my home state is turning into quite the beer state. Virginia represent!
