My bartender was confused, swore this was an "alt bier"--draught. Nice deep brown with malt aromas. Only a hint of sweetness with nice hops balance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep brown on the pour, the head modest in size, frothy in texture and the color a light tan as it dissipates the lace left behind a nice covering upon the glass. Mostly malt nose, sweet, hints of caramel, clean and fresh, with the start sweet and thickly malt, top moderate in feel, the finish is moderately carbonated, the hops pleasing in their spicy presence, quite dry and drinkable.

All I could smell here was overripe fruit. The flavor was sickeningly swwet to the point of being vomitous. 1 taster and I walked away, lunch intact. Thank Hera.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown. Grainy, pistachio and cherry flavor. Tannic. Satisfying, but a little unbalanced. Pruney, rye aroma. A little watery, it could have taken some more hop and carbonation sting.

Dark copper color with a tall shimmering tan head. Creamy malt aroma. Creamy malt feel throughout with a touch of spice(cinnamon). Somewhat syrupy body that exudes malt. I love malty beers adn this is one.
