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

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2012 Bottle... Poured reddish amber, deep red with an eggy, beige head. Nose had diacetyl and some husky grains. Diacetyl not so much in the flavor. Decent carbonation, some sweetness, biscuity, earthy, spicy hops. Low bitterness, clear finish. Low esters.

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.

Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with no real head or lacing, but a bit of bubbly carbonation. Aroma of basic malt, grain and a hint of caramel. Taste is a little better with a bittersweet finish. Meh.

Pour is a murky brown with a small tan head. Aroma is a decent dark bread malty. Flavor is a little bland. The malty backbone is there but this really show its lager side by being a bit watery and some wet paper bag showing. This was just ok. Too watery to give it a better score.

My first altbier, that’s not from Dusseldorf. And you can’t tell, it’s that good. Nice mellow bitterness and roast grain flavor, nut brown color with thin beige head. Aroma is malty, burnt toast. Very tasty.

Headbanger (3880) - 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.

Bulk_Carrier (3864) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - APR 21, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a slightly transparent yet has a hazy brown/amber coloring. Nice one finger frothy creamy white head. The smell had sweet German malts delicately balanced into a decent smoky meaty quality. The taste was sweet and slightly meaty and adds a decent breadiness as it warms, and has exactly the same aftertaste, but the finish is a bit drier. On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium, good carbonation for the Altbier style and good for me as there’s a decent harshness that typically felt in altbiers, also there’s a decent sessionable quality to this as well. Overall, whoah, Full Sail, where did this come from, as I think I just found my favorite altbier by an American brewer as I would definitely love to come back to this.
