Smells nice, looks lighter than the style should be. Taste seems thin. Starts with a decent sweetness and ends with a not so appealing tartness. The bitter at the end could probably be mellowed a little and it would help to get it closer to style.

pivo (2561) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2014
Looks great. Big foamy head like in the beer halls in Düsseldorf. Clear light brown color. Light toasted malt. A little to sweet and to bitter in the end compared to a tie alt but very good. Reminds me of Im Fuchsen in bitterness. Nice!

I’m somewhat inexperienced in this style, but I enjoy this one. Solid caramel malt base flavor. A slight tinge of hoppiness. Very drinkable.

jefcon (1377) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2014
A nice alt, with standard malt aromas and a nice caramel finish. Lots of cereal on the aromas, and a burst of acidity from the noble hop.

8/11/14. Bomber. Pours a nice dark copper with a thin head. Strong carbonation. Nice malty nose. Noble hops are very prominent in the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Auburn and translucent with a thin head. Weak malt and nutty aroma. Tasty nuttiness but bitter finish that kind of kills it. Medium body.

crazyvin (1933) - New York, USA - JUL 8, 2014
A clear copper body with a thin white head that had excellent retention. Lacing was decent. Aroma had a nice caramel malt presence initially. Some fruit notes and a slight spicy hop note. Flavor was mostly sweet from the caramel malts. A nice estery fruitiness to it. Mild noble hops. Light on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mensch (247) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Beautiful clear copper color. Minimal aroma. Fruity, and a mineral note, then the dry finish. Not my favorite style, but this is a very drinkable example.

A pretty basic, straightforward altbier. I found it a little boring. Light hops, a little toasted malt flavor.
