Pours a lovely amber with a solid head that has OK retention and delivers decent mouthfeel.
It smells very malty with no hint of the hops.
Has a lovely, smooth malty flavor. Little hop flavor.

Amber colored. Good sized off white head that fully diminishes. Aroma of caramel. Sweet malty caramel initial flavor balanced out by some hops in the end. Not a bad beer.

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.

Bottled. Very malty, caramel taste. Rich, creamy finish with almost no aftertaste. Lack of a hoppy finish was disappointing. thought it could have used more depth in the flavor and was a bit sweet.

This is a really good, malty amber beer. It has more flavor than most beers in this category and it is very smooth. A great everyday beer!

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.

a nice amber color with hints of sweetness and a light hoppiness in the aroma. a medium to light bodied amber with a nice light maltiness and a light doughy taste. a light finish with a mild hoppiness good to style

12 ounce bottle from the sampler pack. Pretty nice looking amber beer with good carbonation. High viscosity through the use of caramel malts with low hop bitterness and no hop aroma. I do like the fact that this amber ale is not dry hopped, but if it is supposed to be similar to German Altbier, it is way off the mark. Nonetheless, a quite enjoyable amber ale which I think many people will find quite pleasant.

Bottle - Bought it in Oregon at a business trip. Pours a beautiful amber color with a lightly caramel colored head. heavier on the malt and hops, but balanced very well. Finishes well. Great for your afternoon barbecue with family and friends.

Alright, what's the difference between and altbier and a bock? Malty and fruity with a slightly sour finish. Good enough that I ordered a second, but more out of lack of selection. Thought this was a bock (similiar but not as good as Dead Man's).
