COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

hayduke (3578) - 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.

JStax (3548) - 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.

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.

Headbanger (3501) - 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.

thegreenrooster (3459) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2014
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.

BillKismet (3418) - 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.

jeremytoni (3011) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2012
From a bottle poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Light malty flavor with a toasty finish.

tgncc (2998) - 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.

Hophead22 (2879) - 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)
