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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2013
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.

Dorwart (2387) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2013
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.

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

crazyvin (1991) - 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

jefcon (1419) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2014
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.

Bookseeb (118) - 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.
