4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Ehrenfelder Alt has a thin-to-medium, cream-colored head, with rather big, soapy bubbles, some lacing left on the glass, and a very dark brown, with red highlights appearance. Lots of caked, brown sediment, at the bottom will give this beer a milky look, it that junk is swished loose and poured in. The aroma is of rich, dark bread, raisin, prune, and a touch of both wood and smoke. Taste is of those elements, with possibly some rounding bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Ehrenfelder finishes on the crisp end of it. RJT

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep brown pour with a very lift carbonation. A rich toasty malt aroma with a bit of toffee and clean yeast profile. There’s a touch of oxidation but still some clean toasty character. The hops just add a woody accent to the malt sweetness. Straightforward and tasty alt.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate caramel, toffee, light fruit, smoke (although I didn’t initially notice it until after I took a drink) and faint nuts. It pours a dark brown that becomes a transparent reddish-brown when held to the light. It has a small beige head that fades to a thin film outlined by a soapy ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with very mild caramel/toffee. There is a quick dose of light fruit in the middle. The finish has light smoke with some hints in nuts to barely sneak past the smoke. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.
