Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours ruddy copper with not much of a head. Light malt aroma - not much else. Medium minus body with mild, foamy carbonation. Flavor is caramel, but not much hop. It’s a flavorful little thing, but it’s rather mild in all aspects.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught Slightly hazy red-foxy beer with telltale full whipped cream nitrokeghead. Bitterish, and just a slight bit bready. Whiff of diacetyl. Woody bitterness in the taste, going over in hops. Not very assertive pale & coloured malts underneath. Deceptive creamy feel from the nitro hides a rather watery texture. Well, ho-hum ale. The "Alt" moniker is totally usurped.
