Nice brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is caramel and nuts. Taste is well-balanced, with just a touch of both bitter and sweet. Smooth, medium body. Nuts, toffee, some chocolate, just a tinge of wood.

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)

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.

Pint on tap. Mahogany color, slight lacing, tiny head, translucent. Aroma has hints of caramel, not a hint of bitterness. Dark fruits, alcohols, and malts in the taste. A bit more hops than other altbiers, I like the medium carbonation and body.

On tap at Craft and Growler in Dallas. Pour is clear town with a small tan head and decent lacing. Roasty, bready, somewhat grassy, earthy, cocoa, and malt aroma. Taste is roasty, bready, doughy, grassy, earthy, grainy, and husky with a light crisp bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. OK.
