3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer poured great with a nice dark amber color that passes very little light through it, a nice tan colored one finger head and good lacing on the glass. The beer has a great blend a caramel sweetness, some roasted malt, and mild chocolate scents that come together nicely. The taste is much the same with a sweet caramel taste up front that blends into a roasted malt and mild chocolate follow up, it works well together. The mouthfeel is average with good carbonation but a mild flavor from the chocolate. Overall, a great Altbier from a brewer I have never had before. Recommended.

Malt forward beer. Rich brown sugar and tropical fruit malt notes. Didnt get the hops very much. Balance was off for me.

Deep copper-brown with a small, off-white head. Aroma is malty and slightly floral. Taste is malty, well-balanced, and deceptively robust. Nice brew.

Bottle, thanks Russ! Strong caramel malt aroma with a touch of hops. Pours dark amber colored with a medium, white head and good lacing. Sweet caramel malt flavor to start. Finishes smooth with only a touch of hops on the finish. Good amber ale.

Decent beer I've had this both in a bottle and on tap in Lawrence. Wouldn't buy it over other examples out there.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is nutty malts, and a marzen malt quality. Appears brown with red tint and small off white head. Taste is malty with brown sugar, nuts, and some darker fruits like raisin. Crisp yet full bodied. Great session beer.
