3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Poured a clear copper brown, slight head. Aroma was mildly of caramel accented Germanic malts. Flavor was a match, with some lingering sweetness on the palate. Almost struck me as a sweetish Munich dunkel in a way. I like my alt biers hoppier than this. A bit more balancing hoppiness would have been welcome. But not a bad brew at all.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the source. Clear light amber color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of freshly cut grass and light pine. Taste is bright pine and bitter lemongrass. Server obviously switched the alt and IPA, so I’ll have to swap these teo ratings when I’m not on this damn iphone.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Pours pale brown with a slight off-white head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malts. Taste is a smooth-drinking, malty, lager-esque beer. Solid example of the alt-bier style. Good to give your friends looking for a smooth transition into new styles.
