A generous amount of Munich and Vienna malts give this beer its copper color and toasty-caramel aroma. German noble hops provide complimentary

22 oz. bottle purchased @ Julio’s Liquor’s for $4.99 minus Wild Six Discount. Used a Kolsch glass. Ruby / brown color with sizable, white lasting head. Light lace. Overall nice eye appeal. Nose of malt and some floral hop like aroma’s. Toffee flavors with graininess and a decent hop bitterness in the back end to give it a more traditional German feel to it. The bitterness lingers just a bit. A nice offering.

The beer pours a hazy brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of toffee malt, with a hint of grass and some earth thrown in. The flavor similar. I get a lot of toffee notes, as well as some grass and ice-tea character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I am not a huge fan of altbiers, but this one was pretty good.

22oz bottle pours out a dark amber topped with a sand head. Nose is some toast malts wood a little pit fruit sweetness. Taste is more of the toasted malts light sweetness a nice bitterness on the end.

Bottle. Dark copper with a short, foamy tan head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly spicy with caramel notes, grains, bread and grassy notes. Taste is caramel, spicy hops, grassy notes, earthy hops, sweet malt and bread. Body is medium with a strong, fizzy carbonation. Finishes with more caramel, grains, bread, sweet malt, soft fruit notes, earthy hops and grassy notes.

kramer (5909) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a one finger frothy off-white head that fell to a wispy film. The nose is pretty full of vienna maltiness with just a light touch of fruitiness and minimal hops. It actually smells a bit old and lightly oxidized, but there’s nothing in the little ’enjoy by’ space allotted to give me this info. The flavor isn’t really oxidized though, but it is a bit overly husky and grainy with a little light roast coffee and burnt caramel. The hops are pretty minimal here as well, with just a light bitterness towards the back end. Lighter bodied with a slightly clingy texture and fizzy carbonation. This one just didn’t do it for me. It’s really hard to find a good Altbier.

Brown color. Rich, dry malt with bread and the hops are perceivable. Good flavor and true to style. Great alt.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013
Location: Draft at Ginger Man (NYC), 8/15/13

Aroma: It has a light malt nose, with some nuts, caramel, and a little bit of toast
Appearance: It has a clear reddish brown pour with a small beige head
Flavor: This one has a medium sweet flavor, toasty and malty, with a mild bitterness
Palate: It has a medium body, a pretty good drinkability, average carbonation, and a clean finish
Overall Impression: This wasn’t an absolutely amazing beer or anything, but it worked pretty well. I didn’t have too many complaints here.

notalush (5732) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Bomber - lightl hazy dark amber - thick tan head that slowly diminishes to a fine lace - nose is caramel, toasted bread, raisin, yeast, light sourness - low carbonation, medium body - Vienna malt is moderately rich from beginning through the middle, but the malt profile becomes more dry and biscuit-like on the tail end - quite a bit of flowery German hoppiness through the middle and finish - some earthy, dusty character - the finish is a little too bitter, but otherwise this is fairly decent.

obguthr (5697) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Toast and cereal grain aroma with cherry accents. Clear rust, thin head. Strong bread crust flavor again with cherry notes. Bitingly bitter grass is also present and doesn’t complement the fruity esters very well. Otherwise, this is a nice beer. Very nice malt bill in this one.
