Mountain Jam by Southbound Brewing Co. was judged under the 2015 style guidelines established by the Beer Judge Certification Program via category 34B Mixed-Style Beer.

Although categorized as a lager, many ale-like characteristics were evidenced here. Hop flavor was well pronounced in a citrus flowery fashion that suggested a generous amount of dry-hopping while fruity notes were omnipresent in both the flavor and aroma. Malt was lightly bready yet mostly complementary.

In terms of appearance, this beer was pale straw in color, hazy with a white medium rocky head that fell away quickly.

The body was more lager like, well-conditioned, crisp and refreshing with traditional alcohol levels that enhanced drinkability. No astringency or off flavors with a dry but not bitter finish.

A good summer beer with enough character to satisfy your palate.
