On tap @ Bainbridge Island, shared with jcnielsen. Pours a dark copper appearance with a white head. Herbal, caramel, grassy aroma. A bit on the sweet side. Somewhat toasty, light pear, a touch piney flavor. Slightly goopy. OK.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught into a growler at SB. Pours a clear dark amber color with a very small head on it. Nose has a bit of caramel and toast in there, but is mostly bread dominant. Taste is a nice mix of toastiness and bitterness, and makes for a light easy drink. Better than I expected, I’ll admit.

Serving: sampler from tap at Bainbridge Island Brewing Taproom. (When I tried this beer--January 2013--the style had been changed to an American Amber; no longer an Altbier)
Aroma: light malt.
Appearance: small, off-white, initial head with excellent lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-amber body.
Taste: lightly sweet initial flavor and lightly sweet, caramel finish with average duration.
Palate: medium-full body with oily texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: pretty good.
