3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Part of their mixed pack on my trip to Maine. Pours a clean dark amber colour with a light beige head, good retention and lots of dirty lacing. Grainy dark cereal grain with hints of grassy hops. The taste has the same darker grain malts but with the hops being a little bolder, creating decent bitterness and dryness. A decent Altbier all around that is made for a session.

A crystal clear amber with a thin beige head. Crisp clean green herbal aroma with a sold maltiness in a supporting role. The taste is bready dark toffee malts with a crisp bitter finish. Nicely done.

Bottle - More malt than hops. A little dryness in the back of the palate. Hard to nail down any particular flavors but a very good drinkable ale.

Pours caramel brown with a small beige top. Aroma is caramel malts and light earthy hop. Taste is caramel malts with a small hop bitterness. After being in Dusseldorf, this doesn’t come close to a traditional alt.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The body has good clarity and a nice medium amber color. Its head was off white in color, of average size and quickly settles down and fades to thin ring of lace. The aroma has hints of leafy, mineral like and grassy hops with some lightly toasted grain. The flavor is well balanced and delicate. Hop flavor is leafy and grassy with mild bitterness. It is in very good balance with the light bready malt. The light bitterness fades quickly and cleanly off the tongue, setting you up for the next sip. It has a light to medium body, smooth texture and average carbonation.
