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

crazyvin (1896) - 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

Bookseeb (107) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Appearance has a dirty brown color supporting thin head and nil lace. Aroma has a clean sense of sweet malt and hop. Taste is grainy having a dark fruit note with the lightly sweet malt fallowed by the noble hops. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Nothing complex, just a good brew that seems to fallow the style fairly well.

Decent amount flavor but not as powerful as I would have hoped. Touch of smoke and roasted caramel.

Check this one out, 1 ... . pours a deep muddled amber brown .. low foam .. . leather, bitter molasses, and deep tree .. . a good dose of bitterness, i like it- nothing crazy, easy .. . . I thought I saw a baby ghost the other day, But it turned out it was a tissue.

Clear but dark amber color. Malty, nutty aroma. Smells old. What can I say. it’s an altbier so its better than an amber and worse than a pale ale. How’s that for favoritism? It leaves good lacing on the glass and has good head retention and you can tell there are a decent amount of good hops in it. I guess I should be more fair and say its good for the style, which it is.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 Brown pour, no head, little lacing. Aroma is very light - caramel, grain, mild nuttiness. Sharp bitter, sweet, sour. Some citrus, hops, grain, dark fruit. Lingering finish. Improves as you drink it.

22 oz. bottle- Pours autumn amber with a nice rocky light tan head. The aroma is malty sweet, caramel, nutty, some hops, but very little. Taste is caramel malt, sweet, brown sugary, but drinkable. Body is a little thin, and carbonation is a little light, and that is my biggest problem with the beer, but it makes it sessionable.

Ratman197 (9440) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Bomber poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of toasted malt, earthiness, light carmel and light toffee. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of toasted malt, earthiness, toffee and light carmel with a smooth lingering toasted malt finish.

22oz bottle 7/25/12 (Whole Foods Austin)-Pours a medium ruby red with a small head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste of the same with more malt and caramel. This medium bodied brew is not my favorite style but this is well balanced and quite tasty.
