Tap at DC Hamamatsu. Spicy hop nose, caramel malt. Brown-orange color. Rather bland flavor, ok malts, sweet caramel, spicy hops. Doesn’t work as well as their lagers.

On tap at Chuckanut, pours a hazy dark amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out bready malt, some herbal notes, and German lager yeast. Flavour is fairly bland but well-balanced, with a very malty character, with German lager yeast and bready malt. Decently balanced and clean, but pretty boring. Meh.

Blairgus (3722) - California, USA - JUL 19, 2015
18 July 2015, tap at Chuckanut Brewery. Light copper, clear, no bubbles. Nose is very toasty malt, some red fruit. Med/thin body and mildly fizzy. Slightly sweet, dry toasty malt. Nice.

IndianaRed (3220) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 17, 2015
On Tap at the Bellingham BP Mostly clear chestnut color. Full lasting white head and persistant clinging web-like lacing. Light and clean like a brown but with a little more noble hop bite. Quite dry and refreshing.;

Clear brown color. Aroma is a slightly syrupy sweet malt, then a toasted character under that. A little roasted brown malt character. Flavor has less of the syrup, which is good. Just that sweet character doesn’t work.light body, soft carb.

From tap at Beerfes Tokyo. Brown, thin layer of foam. Looks like I would imagine an alt to look like. Aroma has some slight bitterness to it, some fruits. Taste is soft, slightly bitter, malty. Easygoing and drinkable.

Amber. Caramel malt nose. Taste - malt forward. Caramel malt with some mineral and grassy hop flavors. Good easy drinking alt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at the brewpub
Dark amber to brown color, with white creamy head. It has a nice aroma of roasted malt and caramel. The caramel flavor is good, with a lean and dryish body; the bitterness level is correct, quit low.
This could easily be sold in Düsseldorf too; well made.

22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2012
On tap at the Beveridge Place Pub. pours a medium copper, good clarity with a moderately weak head which dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma has notes of pilsner malt, light caramel, and a bit of sulfur, biscuit, and a bit of toast, no distinct hop presence. Taste rings true of an alt bier, somewhat malty, not very sweet, balanced by neutral noble hops. No distinct hop flavor. Finish is fairly decent, albeit a touch of acidic sourness. This is a drinkable alt although it does not display any unique or excellent characteristics.
