Appalachian Brewing Company Mountain Lager

The Appalachian Brewing Company is in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

This 4.5% ABV beer pours a pale,light golden in color.  There is a short and rapidly dissipating head of white foam.  The aroma is pretty light, some golden grain and a moderate amount of herbal hop bitterness.  The taste is also quite light, some golden grain, a touch of honey sweetness, followed by a moderate bitter hop finish.  It is crisply carbonated, but not overly so.

If this was self-described as a "light" beer, I would give it good marks, but the brewery describes it as brewed in the Dortmunder export style.  As to that type, it is disappointingly light in flavor.
