Amber pour with a decent beige head. Caramel malty and fruity flavor with perhaps a little bread. A nice bitter finish.

Third beer into my flight here and I’m starting to notice a sameness between all the beer - this is clean, medium dry, crisp, with piney and citric hops - nothing stand out, but clean and quaffable - a light bit of estery notes - not as malt-forward as most alts I have had - decent.

Draft at Lucky Labrador. This one was on style, although not too exciting. A bit of extra pine aroma and a bit more bitter than most alts.

Half pint on tap at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall in Portland, OR. Fruity, caramelly, malty aroma with some moderate roastiness. Scant hops. Transparent light amber/copper body with an off-yellowish head. Starts a little sweet, before it becomes more metallic towards the middle. Quite roasty in the middle as well. Finishes with some metallic hop character, which is fairly bitter. Pretty nice stuff.

Hazy orange-amber with modest head. Warming malt nose pricked with citrus hop infusion. Not terribly alt-like hoppy body. More in the style of a hop-centric American Amber / Red Ale. Solid malt backbone with juicy citrus hop infusion. Moderate citrus bitterness.

Draught at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall
Deep, ruddy amber color with lace. Fruity, gumball, caramel nose. Fragant. Sweet, cherry flavor, with toffee, fruity, and good hops. Flavorful and balanced; the best alt I’ve tried outside of Dusseldorf to date!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown ale, that is a nice mix between a sweet malt, estery yeast body, and healthy dose of bitter more earthy hops thrown in.
