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 (2959) - 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.;

beastiefan2k (2867) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2015
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.

jinroh (802) - ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2014
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.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
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.

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Pours mahogany with a finger of white head. Smell is fluffy malt, lager yeast. Taste is somewhat like a bock, lager and biscuit. Decent.

kathouse (1288) - Nevada, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Nice golden brown with a thick foam. Earthy aroma with slight floral. Stale fruit flavor and dry hop bitterness. Finish is dry and bitter.
