boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Draft at FB. This was like the Un-Alt, but very tasty. Bronzed-over brown body with maroon hues, hazy and oily in appearance. A mid-sized off-white head feel rapidly back to where it originated, leaving scattered lacing. The aroma is cereal grains, light caramel, apricot juice, almonds and varied dark fruits. the flavor is very malty, lightly to mildly sweet, lightly bitter. Noble hops are noted. Acidity is low, balance is nice. Finishes mild, somewhat crisp, lightly bitter and of admirable duration. The mouthfeel is soft, softly carbonated and light bodied. Good, unique, variable.

On draft; dark brown/copper with a smallish white head. Aroma of toasted malt and sweets. Flavor had that strong presence; a slight hops finish.

00cobraR (1103) - Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Pours out a nice copper color with not much head at all. Aroma was malty and somewhat sweet. Flavor had a nice bitterness to it which suprised me a bit. Over all nice brew.

OldGrowth (2617) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Pint @ brewpub 9/23/06. Good nose, sweet. Malty. Nutty, grainy, caramel, little dried fruit, like a cherry maybe. Clean orangy brown color, small head, faded quickly, little to no lacing. Bitter sweet flavor. Initial bitterness that turns sweet. Nutty roasty. Kind of a grapefruity metallic bite. Medium body, lite creamy mouthfeel, bittersweet dryish finish. Tasty. Well done to style.

ross (2075) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2006
Draft at Mellow Mushroom Carmel Rd. Dark brown color. Smell is malty, hoppy, nuts, fruits, sweet. Taste - similar, with a nice refreshing quality. This one hit the spot, not too sweet, and not bitter at all. Rather nice, could pound these in a session with ease.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Pours a deep brown color with plenty of off-white head. Big malty aroma. Beer ends up having a bit of dark fruit and a lot of nuttiness. Solid bitterness at the finish. Another solid entry from Foothills.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2005
Mild, nutty malt forward cereal aroma with some herbal hops. Slightly hazy copper-tan coloured body with low white head that recedes to cover. Nutty malt flavour with strong leafy, herbal hops and assertive bitterness. Light body with very strong, lively carbonation. Sampled at GABF 2005.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - NOV 12, 2005
At the brewery. Clear amber, nice off white head. Sweet malty nose . Flavor dominated by sweet malt with some fruity esters and very light citrus hop flavors. Sweetness coats the tongue, and continues through the finish. A pretty fair example of an Altbier.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 11, 2005
This is a very pleasing session beer. Maroon beer. Khaki head. Nose is sweet and syrupy with a slight carbnonated and papery dry edge. Smells like the Oktoberfest from Foothills. Slight tomato. Flavors reflect overall aroma and then a light carbonation and a slightly dry ale yeast take over and produce some subtleties. Yeast is florally, malts are tomatoey and hops are slightly there. Good beer
