Headbanger (3275) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 25, 2012
22oz bottle 7/25/12 (Whole Foods Austin)-Pours a medium ruby red with a small head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste of the same with more malt and caramel. This medium bodied brew is not my favorite style but this is well balanced and quite tasty.

AirForceHops (3100) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 6, 2012
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.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Light malty flavor with a toasty finish.

JStax (2955) - 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.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAR 30, 2012
22oz bottle. Rating #4. Clear dark amber pour with a dirty white. Off aromas a little funky, strange. Picking up a little butter in the flavor. Not good, it must of been a bad bottle, to bad. (2282)

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - OCT 9, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Pours darker amber with a smooth off-white head. Toasty malt nose, soft hops creep in there. Flavor is smooth and toasty up front, a touch grainy, but a nice flavor overall. The hops give balance and a soft earthy note to the finish. Overall I thought this was a delicious alt.

tgncc (2767) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2012
The aroma is bready, plastic, band aid. The appearance is yellow/red, white head. The flavor is sour grain, plastic. The finish is noble hop bittering, again a manufactured plastic vibe. Not good.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - APR 15, 2012
Clear dark amber/brown. Aroma of biscuity malt, some nut. Taste is nice and toasty, nothing spectacular, but solid.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 21, 2012
22 oz bottle. Clear amber with a small thick beige head. Aroma of caramel, bread dough and herbal hops. Flavor is bready/toasty malt, medium hop bitterness and some sweet caramel. Medium body with average carbonation and a smooth mouth feel. Very good beer for the style.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Dorwart (2370) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Good sized light tan head of dense bubbles. Light chocolate malts, roasted grains, crusty biscuits and some smoke. Color is a dark mahagony brown. Hoppy flavor. Much more than expected. More roasted grains and toast. Flavor is a bit weak but is backed up by a decent herbal bitterness. Finishes sharp, dry and bitter with a lingering tingling sensation on the tongue.
