3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear and effervescent light copper color, topped by a good inch of bubbly, cream colored foam. Decent lacing. Lightly fruity malt and with a tangy hop presence in the aroma.
Nice crisp and clean dry toasted malt flavor, with a little fruit and a spicy tangy hop bite. The fruit disappears, but the malt and hops are plentiful all the way to the finish. Body on the light side of medium, carbonation is quite lively.

Pours clear copper with an off-white creamy head. Moderate sweet malt aroma, hint of caramel. Pronounced malt flavor. Medium body, almost creamy. No noticeable hop flavor. This is a good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one is not bad for an alt. Pours a light copper clear and good off white head retention. Hoppy noble hop aroma , a bit grassy, and some light toasty malts and hints of caramel. Crisp clean hoppy flavor, solid malt backbone- and a nice crisp spicy and herbal hop finish. Definitely on the hoppy side even for an alt, but nice.

Has a sweet scent of caramel, has similar toffee and malty tastes. Pretty smooth and easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark copper color with a thin head. A little malt in the aroma, but not much. Woody taste with a little smoke as well. A little malt, but very mild. Tasty enough, but I don’t think it’d be a great example of an Alt.

The best of the four I tried in one night. Light malt and hop aroma. Mild, pleasant grain in the flavor with a a nice malt and hop balance. Medium body. Roasted grain finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught pint at the brewpub, early October 2006. Medium maple color with a small head and a trace bit of lacing...faint, weak grassy-caramel aroma is pleasant but takes a lot of effort to get much from....lightly spicy body, caramel and a bit of woody-twiggy hops, lightly sticky mouthfeel, clean and very quaffable but never exciting, faint hints of baked fruit help out.
