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.

Golden amber pour, minimal head. Aroma of caramel and light fruit. Sweet, malty. So much better than their crappy white.

12 oz. bottle from BevMo. Aroma of caramel, bread, yeast. Amber brown color with three fingers of off-white head. Taste of bready caramel malt upfront, slightly fruity. Little or no hop influence. Light mouth feel, low carbonation on the tongue. Very smooth. A wonderful IPA alternative.

Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Clear, deep, pinky red. Film of off white head. Fruity, toffee, light orange hop aroma. Drinks sweet, fruity, and smooth. Mouthfeel is a tad thin. Finishes toffee sweet, with some spicy dryness. Ok.

BeerInHeaven (210) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2015
pours a clear copper with a medium beige head. Aroma is malty, biscuity. Tastes very nice. Caramel, sweet breads, malt. Mildly sweet finish. I’ve never been a big amber fan until now. This is now my personal benchmark for the style. Good beer!

ARH (707) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Sweet honey aromas are noted with sweet berries and a light cinnamon, as well as a caramel malt note. It’s a deep oily clear amber with an off white, big puffy foam head that slowly dissipates to a good medium thick fuzzy ring and a dusty surface and an abundant soapy lace. The taste is medium malty sweet and medium light bitter. The beer is oily with a light foam carbonation. The medium body holds grass notes, honey, citrus, and light toffee. It finishes with citrus zest and spice and leaves an aftertaste of light molasses. It’s a bit cloying and astringent with notes of spice and bitter citrus membrane with wax and a touch of pine.

Pours a reddish gold colour a creamy white head. Malty taste and aroma. Sweet caramel taste in the mouth with honeyed, slightly nutty flavours. Very pleasant tasting, warm and mouth-filling, with light bitterness. Very drinkable.
