3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from my old shipmate Ric. Clear copper with a thin off white head. Nice malty slightly nutty nose, a touch of herbal hoppiness. Smooth with decent carbonation, lightly bitter earth over mild caramel. Damn tasty. Finishes rather cleanly.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
2 ounce can.
Pours a clear copper colour with a small head of foam that shrinks quickly but not entirely. Lacing is pretty good.
It smells pretty hoppy but underneath, I get a notable aroma of caramel malt.
Taste wise, it’s pretty much 50-50 with the sweet vs the bitter. Except in the finish where it is decidedly bitter. The sweet isn’t all that sweet either. More of a semi sweet flavour that I would usually associate with something like molasses. There’s also a hint or 2 of onion or something vegetal, like what you get in some of the IPAs. A bit distracting that is.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Floral, grassy aroma with caramel and some hops. Pours reddish-amber colored with a large tan head, dispersing quickly, as well as decent retention and some lacing. Starts with floral/grassy notes with a bit of caramel. Finishes dry but fairly smooth with piney hop bitterness sticking to the palate afterward. Drinkable brew, not bad.

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.
