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.

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.
