Full noble hop aroma. Some light sulfury notes. Shows similar yeast character to the Uerige Sticke rated previously. Underlying appley sweetness comes on strong as it warms. Sweetish and kind of muddled.

2003 - This was a very interesting take on the style, I actually found this to be quite enjoyable. Assertive fruit notes in the nose, with some yeasty qualities on the palate, that intermingle nicely with the rich caramel maltiness, leaving a lingering honey sweetness. Not as full-bodied as I would like, this still has a great texture and drinkability. Very interesting and very well balanced.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Pours a light amber color with a small off-white head. A mild aroma that includes raisins, malt, licorice, and caramel. Medium bodied with a sort of silky texture. The flavors are a fine mix of licorice, raisons, malt, caramel, and a simple touch of hops in the finish. Pretty good.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 18, 2003
The newest 22 0unce reserve beer from Full Sail, at least at the time of this review...Brown end of amber, slight foam, roasted notes in the nose with some piney, floral smell too, with a "hospital" undercurrent, though slight and not unpleasant. Fresh juicy flavor, with a great interplay of grilled malt and sweet hop on top of a medium body. More balanced than some alts, though definitely to style, pretty enjoyable.

HopasaurusRex (195) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Bomber from the brewery-while my palate isn't as familiar w/Alts, very nice Vienna malt flavor and enough bitterness to qualify for an Alt. One of the better beers I've had from Full Sail
