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.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2014 Pours medium brown color with small head. Smell is toasty, a but nutty, bready. Taste is toasty, caramel, nutty, and crisp with a nice amount of hops. I was pretty surprised by this. Quite good, very drinkable and I picked up a 6 pack.

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

On tap from Whip In. Smells sweet. Pours brown, some pretty nice lacing. Taste is pretty hoppy but with a lot of malt that rounds it out.

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. Excellent beer.

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

This extremely dark brown-colored brew with a slightly reddish hue. The aroma has a slightly lager aroma, but is well balanced with the sweetness of the caramel malts and gentle roasted malts. Itís really a gorgeous beer, is very German-like, and an amazing Alt. Flavor is more of the same, and very, very smooth, with a perfect palate. Iím so impressed that I almost canít describe it. Itís perfect, really. Itís slightly roasted, but (as I said) itís more of the same characteristics of the aroma... but you get the benefits of actually feeling it in your mouth. Itís smooth, silky, soft, and just an incredible beer. This is so much better on tap than in a can. I kept being tempted to drink it as a summer/lawnmower beer, but itís just a little too heavy for that purpose (at least in Texas).

Rated from notes taken on 9 Feb 2013 -- I find this to be a classic example, if not spectacular, version of an Alt. I would gladly purchase a 6-pack any day of the week.

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.
