Sweet and malty aroma. Chestnut brown. Taste is very hoppy...no sweetness like the aroma hints. Sour hoppy finish...a little sticky. Not too bad, but really not the best beer for a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I was reluctant to pick this one up, honestly. The label design looked like something I’d 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

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.

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

Pours clear brown color with medium tan head out of can. Aroma of caramel, nuts, cookies, and toffee. Flavor similar to taste. Very smooth beer! Excellent beer and you would be a fool not to buy it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
