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.

Draft at the Vista Tavern, Harper’s Ferry, WV. Dark Amber pour with just a little head. Not much aroma but the flavor was decent. Nutty and malty. I liked this more than I thought I would based on its ratings.

yngwie (15605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2015
Can. An unclear, dark amber colored beer with a minimal sized off-white head. Rather bready, caramel aroma, with some fruityness. Citrus hints. It’s medium bodied, quite dry on the palate, yet with sweetness in the flavor. Nice, soft carbonation level. Caramel, bread, nuts and some generic fruityness and a faint touch of orange in the flavor. Some bitterness too, lasting for a while. Not much to write home about this one. 150618

Dried leaves, orange peel, pencil shavings aroma. Clear amber, thick firm tan head. Husk and grain, light kibble, leather. Medium body, easy carbonation, even a little creamy. Sessionable, clean, enjoyable.
