Not super crazy about this - but not because it is not a very well crafted beer. Hell, it goes down easy and with no complaints. I just tend to prefer more hops in general. Not a fault of the beer as I think it is hitting exactly what it set out to achieve. A solid almost very close to session beer.

Rated from notes taken on 9 Feb 2013 -- I find this to be a classic example, if not spectacular, version of an Alt. I would gladly purchase a 6-pack any day of the week.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown body, I think it’s almost clear. Served with small creamy beige lace. Brown malts, cookie dough, biscuit, some cinnamon sweetness, aromatic hop mix to balance a bit. Just clean anough to match the style, but rich enough to be a bit more interesting than most Old World examples are. Juicy body with light toast and doughy malts, hidden alcohol. As expected from the aroma, the palate is nice quite as clean as the classic examples in the style, but does provide a more interesting rounded mouth feel. Nice brew, albeit light so it will never get high scores I think. I would order again though. (On tap at the Liberty Tavern Alt)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark nutty, with a sticky foamy light beige head. The aroma has huge notes of toast and bread crust. The flavor is crisp and full with a toasty malt undertone, a bit of cereal, and a clean biscuity finish. Semi-sweet throughout, but mostly dark and bready.
