2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Pours a clear reddish amber body with a small thin ring of off-white head. The nose is sweet caramel malt with a bit of huskiness and grainy malt, minimal to no hops. The flavor is very thin and husky with some grainy toasted malt and minimal bitterness on the finish. Mouthfeel is thin and watery in texture with fizzy carbonation. Really short and bland finish. Overall, really boring stuff, even for an Alt, though this doesn’t exhibit the best qualities of the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy darker reddish amber color with a smallish off-white head on there. Nose has a nice mix of caramel and nuttiness to it, with just a bit of bread coming through. Taste is lightly sweet and a bit doughy, but fairly refreshing and easy to drink. Not a bad brew.

Pours a finger of head on a hazy red body.
The aroma is lemon, orange and grain.

A fine beer, nothing special but tasty with an alt style to it.
