Spicy malt aroma from a thick tan head. Cinnamon clear colored body. Flat sour malt taste with a hint of apple. No hops detected. Mildly sweet finish. Kind of underwhelming though not bad.

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.

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.

Poured as a taster - will re-rate once I have a full serving. Pours a nice amber color with little white head. Aroma of malt and some hops. Taste - malt, subtle hop notes. I imagine this would go well with food.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Drank from the bottle. Aroma is comprised of lemon, banana, clove, and caramel. Taste was extremely strange to me, on first sip It tasted like green beans. But as I got further into the beer the floral notes mixed with the lemon to make this beer a little better. Medium bodied beer with heavy carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Could have just have been me on this day but I find this beer to be weird, not bad, just not a taste that I like.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
