Beerenberger (1428) - 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

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

jefcon (1382) - 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.

Atom (1338) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Bomber pours a bright reddish/copper with a large bubbly khaki head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and cereal grains. Taste of cereal grains of dry caramel with a bitter hop finish. Simple and enjoyable.

MaBeer1972 (1290) - 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.

mrhoppy (1285) - Santa Clara, California, USA - SEP 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2014 This beer is very very mild but it is quite good. Toasty and grainy. Not your run of the mill beer.

mmmbeer (1241) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2012
22 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent light brown with maybe a shade of amber, sat very still in the glass. White ring for a head with tiny whisps of the same color, aroma of toasted wheat and a hint of rye. Hits the mouth with an even medium body, malt was fairly and nicely toasted, some hearty firmness in the middle, finish is slightly bittering and makes me want to add some Everclear to speed up the process... but in due time...

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Poured a finger of head on a dark amber colored body. Looks great. It smells old (it is an altbier after all). Seriously, it has a good barnyard/hay and earth smell to it. It’s fairly complex for an alt with some mild maltiness to start, then some hop spice and finishes with a bit of burnt wood. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. I haven’t tasted many, but this is the best altbier I’ve had.
