Ernest (7252) - 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.

PorterPounder (7131) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Atlanta, Ga. - Tower Beer, Wine & Spirits - 22 oz bomber. Murky dark orange pour, very light off white head clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma is sweet, with some dates and prunes, a touch of banana. Flavor leans to the sweet side of the spectrum with dates and raisins being the most prominent. Pick up some ripening vegetables similar to what one would find in an Oktoberfest. Somey bready yeasty notes round it out. Not feeling it on this one - Full Sail usually impresses me.

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 (6599) - 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.

Strykzone (6561) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2014
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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6544) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a nut brown-caramel color with a medium sized foamy beige head that lingered and left decent lacing.The aroma was sweet with toasted caramel and nut. The flavor was initially sweetish, malty and toasty with honey and caramel followed by light fruity hops but there was an astringent medicinal note underneath that grew as it warmed and became distracting. Long finish. Medium body. Meh.
