achtungpv (227) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2014 Bit of a watered down, flat taste up front before some bitterness from the hops kick in. I donít think itís a great beer but I find myself reaching for it as a session beer so in reality I enjoy it more than it appears.

ansermadide (1526) - Kyle, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2012
This extremely dark brown-colored brew with a slightly reddish hue. The aroma has a slightly lager aroma, but is well balanced with the sweetness of the caramel malts and gentle roasted malts. Itís really a gorgeous beer, is very German-like, and an amazing Alt. Flavor is more of the same, and very, very smooth, with a perfect palate. Iím so impressed that I almost canít describe it. Itís perfect, really. Itís slightly roasted, but (as I said) itís more of the same characteristics of the aroma... but you get the benefits of actually feeling it in your mouth. Itís smooth, silky, soft, and just an incredible beer. This is so much better on tap than in a can. I kept being tempted to drink it as a summer/lawnmower beer, but itís just a little too heavy for that purpose (at least in Texas).

5000 (6300) - 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 doesnít.   Its clean, pale breadiness, nutty, with a semi-sweet maltiness.   Great stuff!   Thanks Bill for this unexpected gem!
