3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Originally reviewed: 5/9/11. Spent a day in the mountains with my family, and stopped in to MM in Blowing Rock for dinner and got this on-tap. This beer came out in a mason jar which was a nice little "mountain" touch. Was a dark ruby color with a small beige head on top. The nose was sweet with candied malts, floral tones, syrup.
Smooth and creamy mouth on this one. Really a mellow gulper. Nice sweet malty backbone with plenty of nutty flavor that I really liked. Caramel and toffee notes noted. This really was a refreshing beer to sip while waiting for my food. I definitely much preferred this on-tap to the bottle form. But this makes me want to revisit it for sure. Another solid offering from OHB.

Bottle---the pour finished with a large head. The color is a pale brown with lacing around the edge of the beer. Aroma was malt, caramel and sugar. The taste was the same with some candy like toffee, slight bitter taste in the finish. OK beer but it needs to get everything together to improve. Bruisin Ales 4.50

Bomber. Clear, bight red color with a small white head. Touch of yeast and grain on the nose. Only a bit more malt sweetness than a pale lager and a similarly short finish. Not bad, but boring and not worth going back to.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark red with a good head. Malty-sweet aroma. Hints of brown sugar, but not much else. Mild, with a thin body and no aftertaste. Looks good, but not really interesting.

Draft at balloon fest. Just confirmed that I don’t like lagers. Couldnt wait to drink an IPA to get the after taste out.

From the bottle poured a tea colored brew with a large head. Medium bodied with aromas and flavors of malt, butter, and tin can, with a barely noticable hop finish.

Tried during a paddle taster and was glad that I only had 2 oz. of this beer! Not a favorite or a second taster.

Tasted at twin city taps. So so beer. They did hit a ruby colored lager but missed the taste it is just an unbalanced mess.
