COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Bomber from Supermarket Liquors - Fort Collins. Nose is caramel, toasted dark bread, a flowery sweetness, and a hint of vanilla. Clear rusty copper with a medium, lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is lightly bitter, lightly sweet with lots of toasty notes.

obguthr (3828) - 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.

bottle. clear reddish/amber with a small stable head. fruity, estery nose reminiscent of an irish ale or malty amber. palate is lightly sticky and slick. malty mostly with caramel. moderate sweetness. hop addition is upper middle for the style. i like it.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2012
From bottle. Mild musty grain, light sweetness with a bit of hop tang. Medium coppery amber clear with rocky-foamy off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts medium sweet with musty grain notes, biscuit, and some caramel. Nutty finish with nice hop bitterness. Pretty plain but balanced and well done. Sweet nutty after.

maxwelldeux (3662) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very hazy dark amber with a moderate head. Malty and surprisingly hoppy in the nose. An odd malty bitterness to the taste that’s awfully heavy.

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 28, 2012
Clear but dark amber color. Malty, nutty aroma. Smells old. What can I say. it’s an altbier so its better than an amber and worse than a pale ale. How’s that for favoritism? It leaves good lacing on the glass and has good head retention and you can tell there are a decent amount of good hops in it. I guess I should be more fair and say its good for the style, which it is.

djd07 (3564) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with frothy white head. The aroma is a bready malt and raisin. Thin mouthfeel with bitter malt and toast with a lingerin dry finish. A good alt from Full Sail.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Bottle.
Pours a deep amber/mahogany with a nose of malted nuts with bread bits. Flavor is buttery nut with a touch of autumn leaves wettened by the first rain after the temp dips below 50 farenheit. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.

mansquito (3386) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Barcade, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma caramel, toffee, and a tiny bit of hops and grains. Taste is slightly sweet with caramel and toffee being all up in there. Minimal bitterness. Mostly just a really smooth and easy drinking session ale.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Dapper scotch colored brew topped with layers of beige foam. True to the description, this sports a toasty and aroma with a dash of munich malt imparting a balanced nuttiness. This one is redolent of German autumnal brews and German Oktoberfest halls. Rich, fresh-milled grainy flavor, flush with caramel malts and toasty, nutty character. A bit tannic and could probably stand to age a while longer, but enjoyable nonetheless. Sweet wort underpinning.
