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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
