2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Decent, but quickly receding head. Decent lace. Has a VERY lagerlike taste to it. Minimal malt taste. very different from other Alts I have had and NOT in a good way.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Pours a dark reddish amber with a small whitish head that quickly disappeared. No lacing. Aroma is of citrus hops and nutty malt ... pleasent. Flavor is of bitter hops with some light malt mixed in. I would classify this more as a pale ale than an altbier ... not malty enough for the altbier nomenclature. A very average beer.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Microbeer Club selection: Poured amber with a disappearing head. Nice nutty aroma. Thin bodied, and it was hurt by a nasty coppery aftertaste that dominated anything else.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is malty, sweet and a touch of cereal. A medium bodied Alt. Malts are nutty and fairly sweet. Hops are a touch spicy and only a little bitter. A mild flavored alt. A little thin perhaps. Crisp and clean tasting. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Has the potential to be a decent light ale - decent head. Metallic taste screws it all up though. Aftertaste makes me think that someone threw a handful of mothballs in with this beer. Another beer club disaster.

Smells sweet and nutty with some sulfur notes. Is a hazy amber with a minimal head. Tastes sweet and smokey with a metallic finish. Also, watery. Not so hot.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
malty and mild not much in the way of character to this beer. Some hops where present they seemed to be in a very watery background. Appearnce was avrage at best amber body and thin white head.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 This pours a nice clear copper color with only the slightest of heads. The aroma is mildly tasted malt with hints of hops. A creamy, slighty sweetish and fruity mouthfeel with a bit of hoppish tartness to the finish. This is a pretty decent American alt. I’d keep some in the ’fridge if it was on store shelves here.
