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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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

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.
