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.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2005
Light cherry wood color with a full stone/khaki head and very good lacing. Floral, spicy and malty aroma. Rich and balanced flavor with a solid malty backbone and a bit of fruity sweetness. Some hoppy bitterness in the extremely dry finish. This beer was very hard to get but the search was well worth it. Too bad I don’t have easy access to a lot more of it!

ruby brown with a large light brown creamy head. sweet malt nose that doesn’t give a hint of hops. bubblegum flavor. this is very malty with a lingering candy finish. there is a slight tartness in there that is a great counter point to this sugary sweetness.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Bottle. Stop the presses. I have found the most perfect session beer! Amber body with a one finger off white head. Nice dry spicy nose. Smells like apples and nuts. Notes of spice, banana, bubblegum, malt, and light cherry come through. Great clean finish. This is an excellent beer for any occasion.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Bottle poured a dark amber with a head that was gone in seconds. Aroma of malts and spice. Flavor is sweet and fruity. Seems plain to me , not bad...whatever.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2005
The name’s a little confusing (beyond a simple colour label) because this is an Alt rather than a classic Irish-style amber ale. However, the beer is a treat. It poured with a thin head but the aroma was light and invitingly fruity. The palate is sweet and oily, with fruity notes and a hint of spice in a smooth finish. Very easy to drink. Even better on tap, I imagine. A gem.

i’ve had this beer on tap and from a bottle. on tap is a bit creamier with less carbonation, but bottled is good too. this beer pours dark reddish-brown with a medium sized fluffy head. taste is mellow fruit with a fair share of maltiness. pretty well balanced with a pleasantly bitter finish and no nasty chemical aftertastes. cheers!

elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 11, 2005
On tap. I really liked this beer, it has a unique sort of creamy-sweet taste like flowers and fruit. The taste seems to be one thing at first, and then there is a very odd but wonderufl aftertaste that lasts. Not very bitter if you’re into that, and not very thick, but definitely one of the better widely available american beers I’ve had.

steve23mj (273) - Essexville, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Pours deep red with light brown/tan head. Nose is fairly malty with notes of caramel and toffee. Flavor continues with slightly fruity, malty well-balanced character. Finishes with a clean bitterness.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Bottle. Nice looking pour, light malty aroma. A malty, light bodied brew that would be a good session pick, but for me there is a middle taste, sort of metallic, that spoils the experience. Would like to try this one on draft and re-rate.
