3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!
