I had this one in a cool can along the side of the last stage of the 2014 US Pro Challenge going over lookout Mountain. It was a good beer to have with a turkey sandwich on a hot day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can at Euclid hall. Pours red colored with a one finger white to off white head. Aroma is floral with some nice fruits coming through. Flavor follows this closely with a crisp hop finish it seems, very floral notes, and some fruits galore going on here. Light bodied and goes down very easy. Not really in the Altbier traditional style, but a pretty decent beer bordering on the session ale side.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy ruby amber with a small off white head that quickly goes to a thin collar.
The aroma is toasted caramel malts with a little roast.
The flavor is sweet, toasted caramel malts and a little apple with some roast and a lot of bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, decent alt - toasted caramel and toffee malts with quite a bit of hop bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bottle: Nice brilliant amber color with red tones, about an inch of light tan head settles with no lacing. Aromas caramel, toffee, and a bit of fruit like cherry or current. The flavor is sweet and toasty, nice caramel down th middle with some toasty bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with some crisp carbonation. Darker and maltier, in my opinion, than some alts... I likey.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 This is a very nice alt. Malty with a medium body and sweet aftertaste. Tried with the parents at the Mayor of Old Town in Ft. Collins in 2013. Tried again in 2014 courtesy of Brandon and Monica. Hoppier than most alt beers, but its a nice bite.
