boxofrane (2046) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Draft at the brew pub. Pours clear copper with a small white head. The aroma Is very malty with mostly caramel, maybe a light smoke. The taste is lightly sweet and lightly malty as well. There is a slight hopliness. This is good but sticke and double sticke set a crazy expectation for the style.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2012
On tap. Pours a mostly clear darker shade of orange, with a big, dense foamy cream-colored head, leaves good lace. Nose has some good earthy hops, chocolate malts, rich dark fruit characteristics. Light body. Smooth, light carbonation. Clean finish. Description is spot-on, it is impressing how easy to drink and refreshing this is, yet it still has a great flavor. Altbier has been a confusing style for me so far, because most of the ones I’ve tried have been imperial versions, and each one tastes drastically different. This, I think, is an example of the style that makes sense, finally. Good chocolate, nutty flavors, light earth, little herbal. Light bitter / sweet taste. Good stuff, a really unique experience.
