Clear but dark amber color. Malty, nutty aroma. Smells old. What can I say. it’s an altbier so its better than an amber and worse than a pale ale. How’s that for favoritism? It leaves good lacing on the glass and has good head retention and you can tell there are a decent amount of good hops in it. I guess I should be more fair and say its good for the style, which it is.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium brown. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, nuts), lightly (apricot), with notes of sour fruit (green grapes, kumquat). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Light, watery, and sour (both in nose and mouth). Not very good.

22oz bottle. Brewer’s Share Series. Pours a deep copper\ mahogany, stained- Cherry Wood color, thin eggshell colored head. Aroma of toasted malts. Some spicy, herbal, grassy hop notes as well. A good amount of sweet caramel and bread in the nose also. Simple, dry body. Bread, toasted grain, caramel. Smooth and soft Lager-ed character. Perfectly balanced. Finishes with a light herbal hop flavor, which is mostly hidden under the toasted malt backbone of this one. (3374)

Poured a nice clear amber color with a slightly reddish hue. Creamy off-white head. Lots of caramel in the aroma with biscuits. Taste is quite bitter with some light fruit and more caramel. Slightly thin bodied at first. Aftertaste has more biscuits and hops. Good!

bhensonb (10343) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 23, 2012
Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aroma of smooth roast malt and perhaps a bit of grassy hop. Med body. Flavor is primarily smooth roast malt, and I think the hops are grassy. The finish approaches astringent, and the malt seems to provide bitter. It’s certainly bitter, and it tends towards dry. Excellent.

Decent amount flavor but not as powerful as I would have hoped. Touch of smoke and roasted caramel.

A toasty almost vanilla aroma sneaks through the soft pillowy head which laces very nicely. Although the abv isn’t anything to brag about, it is layered very nicely. I’m not sure if it is the type of malts they used, but is is a unique, still German tasting Kolsch. By far the one of the best smelling beers and one which will not disappoint.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours a deep reddish orange appearance with a big, light brown head. Quite rich caramel, Munich malty, toffee, light citrusy, straw aroma. A little fruity (apple, pear), toasty caramel malty, toffee, grassy, earthy, a bit nutty flavor with a floral, herbal, grassy aftertaste. A little too sweet for my taste. A bit of a disappointment but not all that bad.
