DuffMan (6683) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Smitty. Medium amber, average beige head. Aroma and flavour are centered around caramel malt that is both lightly fruity and lightly earthy, ending in a gentle hop bitterness. A very sessionable beer, well-made. I think this is exactly what an altbier should be.

marcus (6441) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours cola with a nice beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a rich caramel malt flavor with a dry finish. A nice alt.

Radek Kliber (6425) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle 650 ml
Aroma: clean malty aroma with Noble hop character, Citrus mineral hints.Fresh.7+
Appearance: tad darker than average Alt. Dark amber with hint of ruby. Tanned creamy beige cap with some lace. 4-
Taste: medium lighter bodied. Citrussy with caramel and toffee. Some leaf-woody bitterness. Lacking some nutty woody hints. Tad too sweet with its caramel like Vienna malt side. Good dry finish. Not perfect style wise but good ale after all.

5000 (6265) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle:   Coppery amber appearance, thin sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Toasty nose.   On the tongue its somewhat thin, simple, very pale breadiness and lightly toasted malts.   Comes across as somewhat simple.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes slightly meatly, a bit nutty, with a very light mealiness.   Pretty boring overall.   Not bad, but simple and light.   At least lighter than other Altbiers.

Ernest (6200) - 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.

after4ever (6115) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 7, 2012
22. Pours a crystal clear rubied medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that doesn’t stick around for long. Nose leans from the caramel way over into a tinniness that’s not very pleasant, plus some wet grass from the hops. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel, tin, and wet grass on the mid palate. Mild finish. Showing some potential.

drowland (6001) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2012
5/2/12. 22oz bomber. Clear amber pour, lots of red, with a small khaki head that fades and laces in small, spotty sheets. Sweet caramel and malty aroma with a good touch of noble hops in there. Bold malty flavor, not bad really, with a hint of fruitiness, a touch of bitter hop character, and lasting smoothness. Not too shabby.

douglas88 (5972) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bomber from the Utah State Store on 3300 South. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A sweet Munich nose with light fruit. The flavor is nice and clean: caramel, sweet malts, light bitter hops, light tropical fruit struggling to get through. Very flavorful and smooth. Nice.
