mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Barcade, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma caramel, toffee, and a tiny bit of hops and grains. Taste is slightly sweet with caramel and toffee being all up in there. Minimal bitterness. Mostly just a really smooth and easy drinking session ale.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Smitty. Medium amber, average beige head. Aroma and flavour are centered around caramel malt that is both lightly fruity and lightly earthy, ending in a gentle hop bitterness. A very sessionable beer, well-made. I think this is exactly what an altbier should be.

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.

mensch (246) - 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.

rdixon77 (602) - Georgia, USA - APR 14, 2012
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.

after4ever (6059) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 7, 2012
22. Pours a crystal clear rubied medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that doesn’t stick around for long. Nose leans from the caramel way over into a tinniness that’s not very pleasant, plus some wet grass from the hops. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel, tin, and wet grass on the mid palate. Mild finish. Showing some potential.

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

ttoadee (609) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Pours a nice burnt amber with a dense off white head and some slight lacing. Toffee and malt in the nose. Sweet caramel malt at the front. From that point on there is an overriding dryness that just increases all the way to the finish. Slightly oily,"steam" like ending. Nice ale.
