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.

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.

Bottle 650 ml
Aroma: clean malty aroma with Noble hop character, Citrus mineral hints.Fresh.7+
Appearance: tad darker than average Alt. Dark amber with hint of ruby. Tanned creamy beige cap with some lace. 4-
Taste: medium lighter bodied. Citrussy with caramel and toffee. Some leaf-woody bitterness. Lacking some nutty woody hints. Tad too sweet with its caramel like Vienna malt side. Good dry finish. Not perfect style wise but good ale after all.

Bottle. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted caramel malt and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

From notes, 7/31/12: Poured from a 22oz bomber into a dimpled stein. There’s a space for "Enjoy By", but nothing stamped in the space. A: Deep reddish-copper color, off-white, 2 finger head. Minimal lacing down the glass. Edges are burnt orange when held up to the light. S: Caramel and bready malts up front, fresh lager-like aroma, noble hops. T: Balance tilts toward the bready and caramel malts, bitter hops come out more here. Slight nuttiness in the finish. M: Clean and crisp like a lager, but I found it to be on the thin and watery side. O: A solid Alt and worth the relatively low price tag. Easy-drinking and great for a weeknight.

Pours a dark yeasty brown color with a huge white head and good carbonation. Aroma is caramel sticky malts. The taste is bread, yeast, caramel malts, very little hop characteristics. It’s an OK beer but I’m not a big fan.
