This is a sticke, the secret alternative to a German Alt. This beautiful German style stands out from the crowd with mahogany colored body and a creamy off-white head. The aromas sing of burnt sugar, bread crust, and rose water. The flavor of this beer has sweet notes of biscuit malts and Buchholz. With all it’s sweetness, this beer finishes as dry and bitter as a German comedy.

On tap. Comes reddish brown with a small biege head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and caramel. Taste is similar with a bit of smoke. Decent enough.

Hazy amberish copper, very thin head. The nose is belgianesque and dark fruity with a plum/date ester. The taste is a bit dry for my taste, but has a earthy caramel and dusty raisin tone about it. Hard to explain. Not a fan.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent amberish copper with thin foamy off-white head. Smells solid; malty with notes of caramelized sugar. Tastes like it smells, only a little sweet(er). Average on the palate. Decent beer.

Dogbrick (11492) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Sample at Hoppin’ Frog. The beer pours a clear brownish-amber color with a thin foamy white head that recedes quickly. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of smoked malt and fruit. Medium-bodied with flavors of burnt malt, Fruity Pebbles and coffee. The finish is sweet with a sugary cereal malt aftertaste. Average overall.

Draft. From notes. Fruits with a decent caramel backbone. I’m really starting to dig the Alt style.

DiarmaidBHK (4189) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Draft at hops and pie. Pours brown with an inch of khaki foam. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Dry and sharp on the tongue with a bit of sweetness peeking through. Lingers a bit. Solid.

cbfobes (2881) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2013
On tap at Oasis, pours a clear light brown with a really thin head, the aroma is sweet with some caramel and a little bit of fruit coming through, the flavor is much of the same with some bread and sugar in the finish, a little bit of fruit mixes in which breaks up the one note of sweetness.

blipp (8178) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Growler. Pours amber with a thin head. Malty, toasted bread, and some light sweetness. Very faint hoppy notes and just a hint of booze. Not bad.
