achtungpv (205) - 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 don’t think it’s a great beer but I find myself reaching for it as a session beer so in reality I enjoy it more than it appears.

erickok (3165) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 6, 2014
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)

onceblind (3672) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2013
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.

12oz can pours dark reddish brown with about 2 fingers of head. Nose is nutty, roasty, fruit notes, bark, soil, wheat bread, pumpernickle. Taste is roasty grain and molasses, toasted bread, nuts, syrup. Finish is bready roasted grain, malt, almond. Good.

Caytinator (809) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2013
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.
