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.

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.

Atlanta, Ga. - Tower Beer, Wine & Spirits - 22 oz bomber. Murky dark orange pour, very light off white head clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma is sweet, with some dates and prunes, a touch of banana. Flavor leans to the sweet side of the spectrum with dates and raisins being the most prominent. Pick up some ripening vegetables similar to what one would find in an Oktoberfest. Somey bready yeasty notes round it out. Not feeling it on this one - Full Sail usually impresses me.

Brown color. Rich, dry malt with bread and the hops are perceivable. Good flavor and true to style. Great alt.

zoucrew102 (379) - - FEB 14, 2014
Bomber. Sweet caramel malt aroma to start followed by toasty malt and some nuttiness. Pours caramel-copper colored with a light, off-white head and some lacing. Some sweetness from the caramel malt to start, but as pronounced as in the aroma. Nuttiness and hops quickly overpower what sweetness there was. Finishes dry and quite bitter. Enjoy by date was august of 2013. Wonder if I would like liked it better before that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear copper brown with off white head. Oaky, nutty flavor profile with bitter notes afterward. Fairly hoppy. Not awesome, not bad, somewhere in between.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013
Location: Draft at Ginger Man (NYC), 8/15/13

Aroma: It has a light malt nose, with some nuts, caramel, and a little bit of toast
Appearance: It has a clear reddish brown pour with a small beige head
Flavor: This one has a medium sweet flavor, toasty and malty, with a mild bitterness
Palate: It has a medium body, a pretty good drinkability, average carbonation, and a clean finish
Overall Impression: This wasn’t an absolutely amazing beer or anything, but it worked pretty well. I didn’t have too many complaints here.
