COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nut brown in color and lightly hopped with Willamette, this beer is dominated by a pleasing caramel finish that is darn close to heavenly. 5.2% ABV. The Almost Heaven Amber Ale is named after John Denver’s ode to West Virginia, Country Roads. The picture on the tap handle is the Mountain State Brewing Co logo. It shows the peaks and summits of the Allegheny Highlands, part of the vast Appalachian Mountains, where our Brewhouse is located.

Nice beer. Very smooth and quality beer. Not overly bitter or malty. Amber look to it impressive.

Eh, not a fan of the abrupt dry finish. Pours & feels ok. Aroma is fairly light & not all that enticing. Ok.

A very nice amber. Light red with a thick off white head. Caramel malts but the kicker is the nice hop kick at the end. Tried in Harper’s Ferry with Matt in 2014.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5188) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a red-orange color with a small foamy beige head that faded and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tart and bitter vague fruity hops. The flavor was tart and bitter fruity hops with a bit of orange and perfume. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Tap at the McHenry MD location. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is dates, caramel and nutty malt, and diacetyl notes. Flavor is caramel, diacetyl, fruity esters, and a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

VenomousViper (25) - Oak Hill, West Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2013
On tap at Hooters in Beckley, WV. Smells of molasses and nut. Tastes of malt, hops and nut. Tad bitter on the back end. Great local brew. Have had many times and will continue to get.

toast crust nose, dusty banana esters. Flavor sweeter, honey strong with some pumpernickel bitterness in the finish. As much mild as amber, controlled sweetness again appreciated.
