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.

The aroma is of malt & honey and is the best aspect of this beer. In the flavor, there is lots of malt, sweetness and oak. It finishes a bit on the sweet side for my taste. A very drinkable beer otherwise.

adnielsen (9090) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2012
Tap @ THE Steakout Saloon. Four years ago, I was drinking this constantly. It’s been awhile since I burned out on it. Pours a dark, clear copper appearance with an off white head with poor head retention. Sweet caramel malty, a bit dark citrus fruity, pear, earthy aroma. Apple, pear, light toffee, a bit toasty caramel malty flavor. Ehhh, not as tasty as I remembered.

Sammy (8636) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2010
A serviceable amber, passable beer. Enjoyed on tap at The Yard House, Scottsdale. A little sourness, which also gave it an edgy drinkability. A bit amber, a little lace.

Drake (8560) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Bottle from my Secret Santa. Thanks! Copper-tinged red w/ a medium head. Biig malt aroma with spicy hops, dark fruits and toffee. Delicate tea and grain taste that finishes with a caramel sweetness. Subtle off flavors (ammonia, chlorine). Smooth, medium body.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2007
(35.5cl bottle, with thanks to Papsoe!) Clear, amber to copper colour with a mid-sized, light-beige foamy head. Sweet and toasty malt aroma, nutty with toffee and a faint fruity note. Sweet flavour, moderately toasted malty and nutty taste with toffee; light to medium bodied with a moderate, slightly crispy carbonation. Sweet and slightly bitter, also a bit slim finish with a light hoppy blend. Not overly demanding but still pretty drinkable.
