COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer is based on a turn-of-the-century recipe that quenched the thirst of miners during the Klondike Gold Rush. Smooth and richly malty, this altbier goes well with any meal.

Tap@toad in a hole. Reddish orange body, hazy, off-white head; nice lacing. Lightly musky; malt-laden; caramel, honey, brown sugar, molasses; yeasty--baked bread; toasted grains on aroma. Light bodied with lots of foamy carbonation; fairly dry. Flavor is musky; sour fruits and rising dough; caramel malts, toffee, chocolate; finish is grains and lightly toasty. The body is WAY too light to have such foamy carbonation and while well designed, the beer is pretty plain.

Bottle. Large, white head with light aroma with hints of apple. Clear amber appearance. Decent start, with a light hoopiness with a strong touch of malt. Light bitter finish. Very drinkable and tasty.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2005 I could session beer this...but it didn’t take me back to Gemany. Not to much head. Decent amounts of malts on the nose. Not to much mouthfeel, I have a smoked porter, and i’m am looking forwrd to tasting that.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Nose has apple, pineapple, cherry, strawberry, dusty almost bocky malt. Flavor is soft fruitiness, strong rich malt, a bit of cola in the finish. I don’t remember liking any other alts this much.

Pours a clear dark amber color with a large 2" head. Head settles slowly and leaves spotty lacing.
Aroma is sligty caramel, with some light graininess.
Body is light.
Flavor is lightly sweet, caramel, toffee with just a sint of hops to keep the sweeness in check.
Overall an easy drinking sesion beer.

Thanks to Buck Dich for this. Alts tend to be "middle-of-the-road", but this one has pizzazz. Pours deep copper with medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, toffee, cognac, slight brown sugar. Tastes malty, with caramel, toffee, slight honey and brown sugar, and some finishing hops. Extremely smooth palate. Fabulous. A top notch altbier.

Nice amber color.... the head is gone fairly fast. This beer is very sweet... light hops. This is a overall good beer. Especially if you like it a bit sweet.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2005
Hops and malt come together in a harmonious blend in the nose. A bit on the maltier side up front, quite creamy smooth for an amber. Medium/heavy mouthfeel was a pleasant surprise. Quite nice

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2005 Had this on tap at Pap. The 7 for aroma is the malts. Reminded me of as a kid ridding past the malt house in the back of the Brady wagon. Otherwise not a beer for me.

9/15/05 Had one at the BOB in Phoenix. Missed something in this beer first time arround. More balance in the flavor that gave me a better impression of this beer.

Has a dark amber, iced tea color. Light malt aroma. Very clean on the palate. Smooth malt character, nice and refreshing. Some mild hop bitterness, ends with a clean dry aftertaste. From a 22oz bomber but I bet it would be great from the tap.
