On tap at Volo
Aroma proper malt profile. Malty front with good hop character. Proper to style yet hops were bit subdued.
Appearance fine haze on deep woody amber look. Bright white (lighter) top.4-
Flavor and Palate : Proper Alt. As in aroma nice malt expose. Slight citrus noted coming from hops. I am missing characteristically nutty tad earthy elements. Does Spalt hops provide that ? Clean with no esters showing. Get more bitter as it warms up. Solid effort.

A lightly hazed amber alt with a thin off white head. In aroma, loads of grassy malt with toasted character, smooth, ginger notes. In mouth, smooth nutty malt with a strange soapy character, nice and balanced. On tap at A Night with Amsterdam and Friends, Feb 2 2013.
