2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I am rating this as an Alt Bier per the bottle and Rate Beer. The aroma has more English caramel notes and less hops than a normal Alt. The hop aroma is not far but not quite the one of an Alt. The bitterness level is lower than an Alt and it has a caramelly sweet mid palate that is not appropriate for an Alt.
The finish is not as dry or as hoppy as an Alt.
Ok beer but not close to a Dusseldorf Alt.

pours amber with a thin tan head. Flavor and aroma are heavy malt. slight metallic aftertaste. Drinkable but not something I would get again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
650ml bottle from Lee’s discount liquor store Las Vegas. Red brown, good head. Malty toffee aroma. Caramel malt flavour. Sour aftertaste. Not good. Only chose it because I liked the artwork and have a matching glass.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark copper w/ a thin white head & not much lacing. The aroma is caramel & malt. The taste is clean & smooth. Not a ton going on flavor wise but nicely balanced & easy on the palate. Solid beer overall!

On tap @ The Hickory Lodge (Worthington, MN). Poured amber in color, clear, medium off white head, nice lacing. Aroma of malts and caramel combined with fruits. Taste is sweet and malty, nutty, and grain, some hops for good measure. Very easy to drink, quite enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - Nice Amber color. Good malt sweetness but overly so. There is a nice hop bitterness to cut the sweetness almost perfectly. After the brewery tour the BBQ style of fermentation (low and slow) really helps balance out the flavor profile and nudge that alcohol percentage up.

12 ounce bottle from the sampler pack. Pretty nice looking amber beer with good carbonation. High viscosity through the use of caramel malts with low hop bitterness and no hop aroma. I do like the fact that this amber ale is not dry hopped, but if it is supposed to be similar to German Altbier, it is way off the mark. Nonetheless, a quite enjoyable amber ale which I think many people will find quite pleasant.
