mansquito (5109) - 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.

JStax (4993) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a Belgian style tulip glass. Pours a translucent amber with a thick froth of beige foam. Aroma is sweet and carrot cake-y with a nice hop bitterness coming through. Taste is a touch sweet at first, but moves toward a nicely bitter finish. Its an interesting take on the style.

ChainGangGuy (4755) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 15, 2012
22 ounce bottle - $5.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a clear, amber-hued body with a medium-small, wispy, ivory-hued head.

Smell: The nose leans a bit malty, with a note of toasted biscuit tops and suggestion of homemade caramel. Low hint of esters. Moderate degree of spicy-minded Continental hops.

Taste: Biscuity, toasty German malts with a little, sweetish nibble of burnt sugar. Slight fruitiness with a bit of green raisin showing. Spicy Noble hop bitterness gives a slight bite and a steady-as-she-goes dryness until the finish with a final zip of suds.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. A notch on the dial just above medium carbonation.

Overall: A solid, well-built alt.

hayduke (4629) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Pours dark and clear amber. Off white head. Good lacing. Nose is roasted malts, some fruit, and floral and grassy hops. Body is medium and mouth feel is average. The flavor is ripe fruit, some floral hops, light bitterness, and some sour astringency. As it warms it smooths out and ends up tasting of nuts and lightly bitter. The beer went down easy and the 22-oz was gone before I knew it. Nice.

emacgee (4585) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Pours a soft copper brown with a slight haze. One finger of frothy off white head. Nose is dominated by Munich and Vienna. Super bready and biscuity with lots of toasted grain. Has a weird slickness to it. Almost tastes like diacetyl. Some caramel-y sweetness and herbal hops. Not digging this flavor or the mouthfeel. No carbonation and a super soft body with an overly aggressive bitterness.

kidmartinek (4585) - 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.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
22oz bottle. Brewer’s Share Series. Pours a deep copper\ mahogany, stained- Cherry Wood color, thin eggshell colored head. Aroma of toasted malts. Some spicy, herbal, grassy hop notes as well. A good amount of sweet caramel and bread in the nose also. Simple, dry body. Bread, toasted grain, caramel. Smooth and soft Lager-ed character. Perfectly balanced. Finishes with a light herbal hop flavor, which is mostly hidden under the toasted malt backbone of this one. (3374)

maxwelldeux (4324) - Snohomish, 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.
