3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Pours mahogany with a finger of white head. Smell is fluffy malt, lager yeast. Taste is somewhat like a bock, lager and biscuit. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery.
Beautiful amber coloration and lacing that is nothing short of astounding for a 5.0% beer. Complex yeast-driven aroma, powerful flavors that veer only slightly into the territory of fermented fruit. I’d love to try this one side by side with Ulrige.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft at the brewery. pours a slightly hazy and deeply burnished dark amber. loose off white head and decent stringy lace. nice rich caramel and brown bread toast nose. creamy medium body with nice soft carb. beautiful caramel, nuts, and toast mid palate with a nice toasty, earthy finish. puts alaskan amber to shame...clean and drinkable, but so much flavor.
