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.
