Bottle. Pours dark ruby with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit nutty. Taste adds some dark fruit and a strong pilsner malt finish. Mouthfeel is light with a crisp carb. Solid lagerish beer. Good intro to alt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This beer is pretty much clear and deep amber. A beige head sits atop. I wish the aroma were bigger. It brings grain, caramel, and a little fruit. Flavor is grain with caramel and some harshness. At some point a little fruit pops in along with dark fruit. Some sourness in the finish of each sip. Some nuttiness is tasted late. Towards the finish the hops moved up into a nice balance. Just a hint of mintiness there, too. This was certainly a modern take on an Alt and it was a nice one.

hayduke (3473) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours dark and clear amber. Off white head. Good lacing. Nose is roasted malts, some fruit, and floral and grassy hops. Body is medium and mouth feel is average. The flavor is ripe fruit, some floral hops, light bitterness, and some sour astringency. As it warms it smooths out and ends up tasting of nuts and lightly bitter. The beer went down easy and the 22-oz was gone before I knew it. Nice.

Malt aroma with a very light amount of sour grain. Clear orange-red color with a small off white head. Sweet smooth beginning with a light bitter finish.

thegreenrooster (3307) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2014
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.

pivo (2592) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2014
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!

mikedR (1349) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2014
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 (1426) - 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
