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

Bomber: Pour is mahogany brown with copper highlights and a thick off white head. aroma is sweet caramel and dusty vienna malt. light woody hop. flavour is pronouncedly sweet though not overpoweringly. Strong caramel and and toffee blend with toasted malt, nutty and woody tones and a floral earthy bitterness lingers in the finish masking the sweetness. All round decent and drinkable.

Copper color pour. Smell is mostly malts. Flavors to follow...malty with a touch of some mild hops. "Nourishing tasting and bitter" says my wife. Hardy beer that is sessionable. Very clean tasting. My first alt, so not much to compare it to. Good brew, nothing special.

Beerdrinker79 (1938) - Idaho, USA - JUL 14, 2012
22 oz. bottle- Pours autumn amber with a nice rocky light tan head. The aroma is malty sweet, caramel, nutty, some hops, but very little. Taste is caramel malt, sweet, brown sugary, but drinkable. Body is a little thin, and carbonation is a little light, and that is my biggest problem with the beer, but it makes it sessionable.

MaBeer1972 (1641) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 22, 2012
Pours out a beautiful deep copper-brown color with big frothy tan head. Good carbonation and aroma. Flavor is multiple layers of nutty and roasty malts. Some caramel, some toffee. Well balanced and not sweet. Very slightly fruity. Smooth and very drinkable. A very nice example of this often under-rated and under-appreciated style.

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.

Beerenberger (1590) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Aroma of sweet malt. This a beautiful pour. A clear cranberry copper color with a mostly diminishing ivory head and some lacing. On the bitter side but combined with a wonderful rich biscuit taste and the biscuit flavor continues through the aftertaste. Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Overall, I liked this beer! The rich biscuity taste grabs your attention as well as your taste buds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

A - Pours a fairly clear orange-red with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet bready and caramel malts with grains, lager yeast, light floral hops, and some light fruity esters. T - Starts off with a mix of sweet bready and caramel malts with some fruity esters and grains. Through the middle, some light floral hops come through with some biscuity malts and some lager yeast. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts with some floral hops, fruity esters, and lager yeast. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and dry finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice Altbier with good yeast character and smoothness.
