3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Safeway. Clear, medium amber pour with a medium, off-white head fading to short but with good retention. Nose is lightly malty sweet. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Toast, medium-roast malt, some fruits and cedar. Finish is medium, dry and tasty, with a light sweetness lingering. Not a big altbier fan, but I reckon this one is pretty solid.

Pour is a murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a decent dark bread malty. Flavor is a little bland. The malty backbone is there but this really show its lager side by being a bit watery and some wet paper bag showing. This was just ok. Too watery to give it a better score.

Looks great. Big foamy head like in the beer halls in Düsseldorf. Clear light brown color. Light toasted malt. A little to sweet and to bitter in the end compared to a tie alt but very good. Reminds me of Im Fuchsen in bitterness. Nice!

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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
