Aroma of graham crackers, lemon, coriander, and cinnamon. Copper colored and very clear. Tastes medium sweet, lightly sour, and medium bitter. Not bad, but don’t want the whole bomber.

Bottle. Pours dark ruby with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit nutty. Taste adds some dark fruit and a strong pilsner malt finish. Mouthfeel is light with a crisp carb. Solid lagerish beer. Good intro to alt.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dapper scotch colored brew topped with layers of beige foam. True to the description, this sports a toasty and aroma with a dash of munich malt imparting a balanced nuttiness. This one is redolent of German autumnal brews and German Oktoberfest halls. Rich, fresh-milled grainy flavor, flush with caramel malts and toasty, nutty character. A bit tannic and could probably stand to age a while longer, but enjoyable nonetheless. Sweet wort underpinning.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good sized light tan head of dense bubbles. Light chocolate malts, roasted grains, crusty biscuits and some smoke. Color is a dark mahagony brown. Hoppy flavor. Much more than expected. More roasted grains and toast. Flavor is a bit weak but is backed up by a decent herbal bitterness. Finishes sharp, dry and bitter with a lingering tingling sensation on the tongue.

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.

A nice alt, with standard malt aromas and a nice caramel finish. Lots of cereal on the aromas, and a burst of acidity from the noble hop.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
