COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A generous amount of Munich and Vienna malts give this beer its copper color and toasty-caramel aroma. German noble hops provide complimentary

Strykzone (5350) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This beer is pretty much clear and deep amber. A beige head sits atop. I wish the aroma were bigger. It brings grain, caramel, and a little fruit. Flavor is grain with caramel and some harshness. At some point a little fruit pops in along with dark fruit. Some sourness in the finish of each sip. Some nuttiness is tasted late. Towards the finish the hops moved up into a nice balance. Just a hint of mintiness there, too. This was certainly a modern take on an Alt and it was a nice one.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2012
Bomber from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear copper color with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, a bit of toffee and raisin, and earthy hops. The taste is raisin, toasted malts, and peppery and herbal hop notes. Medium bodied. Decent.

drowland (6629) - Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2012
5/2/12. 22oz bomber. Clear amber pour, lots of red, with a small khaki head that fades and laces in small, spotty sheets. Sweet caramel and malty aroma with a good touch of noble hops in there. Bold malty flavor, not bad really, with a hint of fruitiness, a touch of bitter hop character, and lasting smoothness. Not too shabby.

Derek881 (1037) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2012
I poured this beer from a 22oz bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a semi-clear rich copper color with a very foamy but small off-white head that had little retention but great lacing and good cling. Its aroma was a rich blend of caramel malt with a slight floral scent, and an earthy and grainy hops aroma as well. It initially tastes fairly sweet with notes of caramel and fruit, but that gives way to a bitter grainy flavor as it sits in the mouth. The beer was a bit thin and somewhat dry with below-average carbonation and fizz, with a slightly more lively finish.

22 oz. bottle purchased @ Julio’s Liquor’s for $4.99 minus Wild Six Discount. Used a Kolsch glass. Ruby / brown color with sizable, white lasting head. Light lace. Overall nice eye appeal. Nose of malt and some floral hop like aroma’s. Toffee flavors with graininess and a decent hop bitterness in the back end to give it a more traditional German feel to it. The bitterness lingers just a bit. A nice offering.

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

22 oz bottle. Clear amber with a small thick beige head. Aroma of caramel, bread dough and herbal hops. Flavor is bready/toasty malt, medium hop bitterness and some sweet caramel. Medium body with average carbonation and a smooth mouth feel. Very good beer for the style.

adnielsen (9901) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours a deep reddish orange appearance with a big, light brown head. Quite rich caramel, Munich malty, toffee, light citrusy, straw aroma. A little fruity (apple, pear), toasty caramel malty, toffee, grassy, earthy, a bit nutty flavor with a floral, herbal, grassy aftertaste. A little too sweet for my taste. A bit of a disappointment but not all that bad.
