achtungpv (254) - 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.

Shared 12 oz. can. Pours amber brown with an off-white head. Moderate lacing. Nose is toasted malt with some faint fruity notes. Taste is roasted malt, nuts, and grains. Has some light chocolate undertones. Itís perhaps a little thin, but overall, itís good.

stevoj (3776) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Can from Whole Foods - Lamar. Agree with Cosmic Scherzo, spot on for an altbier. Dry and nutty, medium murky brown/amber body, soft tight beige head. Aroma and taste both accurately represent this Dusseldorf style. Somebody did their homework.

CosmicScherzo (10) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2015
I was reluctant to pick this one up, honestly. The label design looked like something Iíd associate with a 40 of some bargain brand. But I though what the hell and decided to try it. Wow, am I glad I did. Tits-clean fermentation with toasty, caramel malt flavors. Bracing, herbal bitterness. Usually, when an American brewery comes out with an "Alt" it means some sort of amber ale. This one nails it. A fantastic example of what remains an underrepresented style here in the States. Nicely done, Hops & Grain.

Love this beer, a great take on the alt style from a Texas brewery! Great to have when barbecuing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (7124) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2015
San Marcos, TX - HEB Grocery Store - 12 oz can.Dark brown, cola-like pour, soft bubbly white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Fresh lake water accents with a hint of wort and chocolate in the aroma. Flavor has a nutty profile with some chocolate accents, a touch of toffee, finishes with some black dirt accents - nice and full bodied. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it. Very nice alt.

docsteigs (542) - Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Always nice to see an alt. aroma is minimally hoppy, malt forward with some mild roasted notes. Taste also malt forward, mild bitterness. Finish semi dry and clean. Would have liked more bitterness and hop presence. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tan color, tan head. Tasted like a brown mixed with a blonde. Not bad I liked it
