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.

Bottle pours deep amber with a quickly diminishing head and lively carbonation.   Lightly roasted malts greet the nose.   I get a grassy/oat tinge as well.   Immediate hop kick on first sip quickly giving way to a malty aftertaste.   A slight sweet grain flavor on finishing.   Lacks good lacing, fairly full bodied.   Tiz a good Alt.

This beer is some really good stuff. It is nice and smooth with a good aftertaste. I would definitely buy this again if I could get it here.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2005 This is a decent brew but nothing special to go out of your way for. Not much taste but is still beer

Hazy apperance, caramel flavor but with a weird metallic finish that I didn't care for at all. Very boring.

Pretty amber color out of the bottle with a small beige head and a slightly roasted malt nose. Some white sugar sweetness with apple juice notes. Faint hop notes keep it from being entirely one dimensional. Okay beer with food.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2004
It took some warming up to get this beer to have much flavor (was served too cold). Caramel predominated, slight grainy-ness decent hops, solid head.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2005 Amber color (duh) with a nice malty and candy aroma. Decent tan head that didn’t last too long though. Smooth, malty and bitter. Nicely done. Re-rated the head retention in a tulip glass and it did a bit better.

Medium-dark amber ale. Slightly toasted aroma with woody undertones. Wonderful, slightly sweet first impresion that turns to a warm, complex taste that is reminisicent of Newcastle, only much better. Slight hop finish that integrates well with the flavor profile and leaves a very smooth, wonderfully pleasant finish. One of my favorite beers.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2004
Dark amber or rusty red with decent head, but it quickly subsided. Vague caramel tones on the nose; the flavor is similarly understated, caramel and lightly malted with a sweet finish. Disappointingly still.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - FEB 17, 2004
Quickly disspating head, deep copper color. Nice malt, very slight bitterness. Really nothing great, but it is fairly balanced and the carbination level is good, but the head went down so fast...
