COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A generous amount of Munich and Vienna malts give this beer its copper color and toasty-caramel aroma. German noble hops provide complimentary

I’m somewhat inexperienced in this style, but I enjoy this one. Solid caramel malt base flavor. A slight tinge of hoppiness. Very drinkable.

jefcon (1376) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2014
A nice alt, with standard malt aromas and a nice caramel finish. Lots of cereal on the aromas, and a burst of acidity from the noble hop.

8/11/14. Bomber. Pours a nice dark copper with a thin head. Strong carbonation. Nice malty nose. Noble hops are very prominent in the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bomber. appears a little viscous from bottle to glass. iced tea color. no problem with the aroma. wew, quite strong initial impression like more than 6%. lots of body. has a kick. decent co2 in this, cutting at times. finish is strong bitter blunt.

Auburn and translucent with a thin head. Weak malt and nutty aroma. Tasty nuttiness but bitter finish that kind of kills it. Medium body.

crazyvin (1930) - New York, USA - JUL 8, 2014
A clear copper body with a thin white head that had excellent retention. Lacing was decent. Aroma had a nice caramel malt presence initially. Some fruit notes and a slight spicy hop note. Flavor was mostly sweet from the caramel malts. A nice estery fruitiness to it. Mild noble hops. Light on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mensch (246) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Beautiful clear copper color. Minimal aroma. Fruity, and a mineral note, then the dry finish. Not my favorite style, but this is a very drinkable example.

fishonmyplane (422) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 22, 2014
A pretty basic, straightforward altbier. I found it a little boring. Light hops, a little toasted malt flavor.

GreatDane1632 (327) - Louisiana, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Rated from notes taken on 25 Sep 2013 -- A blind taste-test side by side with my homebrewed Alt. This had a nice woody flavor, I thought it was highly overcarbonated. Flavors were nice but didn’t meld well together. I thought my alt was better, side-by-side this one didn’t taste as authentic. Of course I’m biased, right?

llcooldave (1076) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Reddish amber in color. nice off white head with a hint of caramel. Toasty malt lager-ish aroma. Crisp and dry with a bit of dark toasted bread note mixed in. Overall, not a bad find for $4.99 per 22oz. I’ll buy this again...
