5000 (6023) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Can:   Deep mahogany, large frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Nutty nose, a bit bready, thankfully not really grainy or soily.   Nice malty background on the tongue, nutty, pale breadiness, clean, with a nice smooth and hefty mouthfeel.   I am not much a fan of Alts, but this beer is great!   So many have this grainy and/or soily/earthy aspect.   This doesn’t.   Its clean, pale breadiness, nutty, with a semi-sweet maltiness.   Great stuff!   Thanks Bill for this unexpected gem!

Can shared by Dogbrick at Septoberfest V: Septoberfest Rises on 9/29/12. Clear copper in color with a thick off-white head. Malty and caramelly nose with lager yeast notes. Flavor of caramel malt with lager yeast character before a nutty finish.

Not a big fan of the Altbier style, but this one is solid. The malt quality seems good, along with the carbonation and head.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2012
This brew pours a dark brownish-amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Caramel malt and mild hops in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of roasted malt, caramel and lightly bitter hops. The finish is sweet with a grainy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

12 oz. can from a buddy in Texas- thanks, Bryan! Pours a deep amber color with a big, rocky taupe head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts, earth, leaves, dust, and sweet bread. Flavor of toasted malts, faint roast, nuts, brown sugar, tobacco, and sweet bread. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a toasty, earthy mouthfeel. Nice alt.

mmmbeer (1208) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Pint glass at Flix- served a transparent brown color with a maroon tint, 2.5mm white head that did lace very well. Aroma of a slightly roasted malt, various nuts, and toffee. Hits the mouth with a light-medium body, malt does have a very slight roast to it, mild sweet sting in the middle, finish is whole, lasting, and complete. ’Bout time I had a f’n beer...

On tap from Whip In. Smells sweet. Pours brown, some pretty nice lacing. Taste is pretty hoppy but with a lot of malt that rounds it out.
