Dark coppery color with a light tan head. Sweet, malty base with a caramel flavor. Crisp, fizziness with a mildly bitter hops punch. Full body, very nice.

apparently I got this an hour off the bottling Line. Super mellow, slick and puffy. Rye character some chocolate. Excellent balance and drinkability.

Nice malt flavors that make for a very drinkable beer. Hops are balanced and leave a bit on the palate but not too much. Decent alcohol level so it is not overpowering. Highly drinkable and enjoyable.

Lukaduke (1735) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Pours an amber color with a one finger head that laces out quickly... Aromas are very subtle...malty caramel a touch of watered down scotch and a hint of nuttiness. On the palate is has a similar mouthfeel to a small beer...a balanced easy drinker with a malty round body that brightens up with a hit of noble hop bitterness in the finish. Not bad...a couple weeks past its expiration.

Nutty with elements of rotting fruit. Fairly bitter close. Not bad at all.

Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen for the bottle. Pours an reddish brown color with off white head. Bready, caramel, nutty aromas. Flavor is strongly toasty and caramel with some nuttiness. Alts are one of my favorite styles, and I enjoyed trying this one.

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.

A really smooth brew. Big time Malts that are smooth. Pours deep amber with a Lacey head

poisoneddwarf (1616) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Bomber bought at Super 1 in CDA, ID. Aroma consists of dough, caramel, spices (cinnamon?). Pours clear copper with a medium beige head that collapses after a couple minutes, leaving a blanket of foam; leaves cobwebby lacework. Taste starts out sweet and a little tart before becoming pretty bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy, body medium, carbonation soft. Pretty tasty--it exceeded my expectations.

A - Pours a fairly clear orange-red with a finger of frothy off-white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet bready and caramel malts with grains, lager yeast, light floral hops, and some light fruity esters. T - Starts off with a mix of sweet bready and caramel malts with some fruity esters and grains. Through the middle, some light floral hops come through with some biscuity malts and some lager yeast. The finish is a mix of sweet bready malts with some floral hops, fruity esters, and lager yeast. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet and dry finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice Altbier with good yeast character and smoothness.
