omhper (19239) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear amber. Sweet, fruity and salty. Fairly malty with soft mouthfeel, yet dominated by spicy hops. More of a hop monster than an altbier, but the combination is interesting.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Tap. Fairly clear light to medium amber colored. Smallish white head which leaves fail lacing. Aroma is floral, citric and altogether hoppy. Light malt aroma which runs caramelly. Medium to light bodied. Grapefruit adn floral flavors abound from the hops. Fair malt balance. Relatively clean tasting. Very hop dominated. Probably out of style but enjoyable.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - MAY 30, 2005
On tap at the brewery. This is a heavy hopped alt with a big bitter finish. I wish it had a bit more balance. Pours a clear copper with a white head. Very hoppy aroma with a light malt scent. Taste starts with a nice sweet malt that is quickly taken over by the big hop finish.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Cloudy copper with a creamy head and lace. Aromas are bitter and earthy with fruits and caramel malts. Flavors are fruity with grapefruit and oranges. Caramel malts and bitter hops. A creamy palate.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 9, 2005
Dark amber, cloudy. Flowery pnw hop aroma. Hint of sticky malt. Sticky, resiny hops - not too bitter, though, with caramel sweetness. Fresh, off-dry character. Definitely not an alt but a nice beer.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2005
After Oakes explained to me what a Alt beer is I quickly realized that I was drinking the bitter. Anyways, amber colour with a light head. Aroma is lots of malts with a hop kick. Flavour has some nice darker malts and sweet body with some hops. Clean and well balanced.

motelpogo (6309) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 20, 2004
on tap at lucky labrador. one of the better american attempts at making an alt. surprising chocolate crackle and lychee aroma. decent semi-dry finish. i would struggle to pick this as an alt in a blind tasting but i liked it anyway

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Bright orange with a creamy head and nice lace. Moderate carbonation; nice and creamy texture. Malts were lightish but tasty, sweet and clean. Aroma was pleasant, with notes of flowers and herbs, and a little citrus. More like an IPA than an alt, but it still tasted good.

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2004
Orange, light orange and bread nose... soft palate, very smooth, with a soft creamy flavor, very light. A good roughness that lasts long into the finish with some mildly roasted bread and grain flavors.
