3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I was going to pass on this until I realized it was an alt - clear medium amber- moderate lace - the nose is initially all Munich richness - very pleasant until some light vegetal and metallic (copper) notes show up - slight bummer - flavor is crisp and biscuity up front, but also slightly husky - moderate toasty vienna and sweet munich maltiness through the middle before a medium dry, medium bitter finish - lingering grain husks - much like the kolsch, this has promise, but it is troubled by a handful of minor flaws.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, a fitting follow-up to a Kölsch. Nose not stale but dank and a little vegetal, caramel with a heavy nutty component. Meaty. Pours a dark, hazy amber with a short beige head. Taste moderately dry with apparent Munich and nuts, caramel and light bitterness. Creamy fullish body. A little dulled, and not terribly successful w.r.t. a crisp lagery mouthfeel, but pleasant enough.

Tap: hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel, nutty with a light roast. Flavor is sweet with caramel, nutty and has a light bitterness that kicks in with the roast grain. Decent beer, nice flavor and easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Tattooed Mom. Cloudy amber with a light foamy white head. Medium malt. Light toasted wheat flavors. Orange banana cookies. Some hop bite is present but not a major force. Reasonably full body for the style. Not too sweet. Smooth finish. Might be my palate right now but tastes good after a strong bitter stout.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nuts, caramel, and pine hops in the aroma. Taste starts sweet and nutty, with a pretty heavy pine bitterness in the finish. Pretty heavy taste and finish for a 5% beer. OK, but not great.
