3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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).

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.

Pours ruddy amber with moderate carbonation. Not much in the way of aroma, just light and sweet. Starts sharp, really the only hop bitter in there - then the malt quickly takes over. Moves on pretty smooth.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber color with reddish tones and pretty much no head on this beer. Aroma was very low, just a little malt aroma. The flavor has malty sweetness and a slight alcohol flavor. The palate is mile yet the aftertaste is satisfying. Medium bodied beer that is a staple for West Coasters.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 22 oz. bottle purchased locally. Aroma is fruity - apples with some plum. Color is a burnt amber orange with a tan head that went away fast. Malty, toasty, some biscuit and evenly balanced with bitterness. Medium bodied and finishes dry but just sits on the tongue. Still an easy drinking beer.

A decent beer, but not my favorite. It is a very smooth beer with a very mild flavor.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 Bottle courtesy of jake65, pours hazy copper with little tan head. Aroma is sweet malt and taste is similar with some citrius notes. Nice mouthfeel with clean finish. Really like this beer. Wish I could get it regularly.
