Copper color pour. Smell is mostly malts. Flavors to follow...malty with a touch of some mild hops. "Nourishing tasting and bitter" says my wife. Hardy beer that is sessionable. Very clean tasting. My first alt, so not much to compare it to. Good brew, nothing special.

22 oz bomber from "Lifesource" Salem. $4.79 Nice deep amber/brown body with a slight haze,and a thick creamy quarter inch eggshell white head atop. Malty,bready,nutty slightly toasted aromas. All of the above inn the taste..plus a semi bitter after taste that works well. Nice rounded mouthfeel . Good drinkable beer.

Bottle. A good looking alt with a copper body and foamy head. Restrained malt aroma. Balanced flavour the German hops shine. Nice finish.

poisoneddwarf (2273) - Coeur d’ Alene, 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.

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.

Fatehunter (2215) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Poured a finger of head on a dark amber colored body. Looks great. It smells old (it is an altbier after all). Seriously, it has a good barnyard/hay and earth smell to it. It’s fairly complex for an alt with some mild maltiness to start, then some hop spice and finishes with a bit of burnt wood. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. I haven’t tasted many, but this is the best altbier I’ve had.

Bottle. Pours dark ruby with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit nutty. Taste adds some dark fruit and a strong pilsner malt finish. Mouthfeel is light with a crisp carb. Solid lagerish beer. Good intro to alt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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