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.

Beese (1971) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Draft at The Full Sail Pilsener Room in Portland, OR on 5 June 2013. Pours a clear copper colour with a sightly off-white head. Malty, slightly nutty aroma. Caramel flavours and some dried fruit, sweetness is pronounced, but offset by a grassy bitterness.

On tap at the brewery. Pours darker amber with a smooth off-white head. Toasty malt nose, soft hops creep in there. Flavor is smooth and toasty up front, a touch grainy, but a nice flavor overall. The hops give balance and a soft earthy note to the finish. Overall I thought this was a delicious alt.

StefanSD (2156) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAY 12, 2012
650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a copper color with a medium off-white head that has fair retention and shows some minor lacing. The aroma is soft with sweet malts, pecans and a bit o’ brown sugar. The taste is similar to the nose with earthy bitter nuts, semi-sweet grains, mild spices and a brown sugar character(but without any real sweetness). The palate is on the lighter side, but seems appropriate for this beer and the carbonation is soft. The finish is medium in duration, very dry, and leaves an aftertaste of bitter walnuts. Overall: Very interesting, and very good, me like.

Dark copper. Drinks like a bock with hops. Caramel malts and hazelnut flavors on the palate. Firm bitterness on the finish. Well put together.

Trev (1947) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Bomber: Pour is mahogany brown with copper highlights and a thick off white head. aroma is sweet caramel and dusty vienna malt. light woody hop. flavour is pronouncedly sweet though not overpoweringly. Strong caramel and and toffee blend with toasted malt, nutty and woody tones and a floral earthy bitterness lingers in the finish masking the sweetness. All round decent and drinkable.
