(Draught) Pours a hazy cooper color with a thin white head. Just an average tasting bitter.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2003
At Indiana MBG Fest: Copper hue with no head. Fruity, aromatic hops, roasted malts, and musty aroma. Taste starts sweet and nutty but quickly changed to a bitter and spicy tone. This thin to medium-bodied brew has a dry and fizzy mouthfeel. Moderate metallic feel as well. Better than average bitter, I enjoyed it and will seek out again if in area.

FastEddie (230) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Lovely copper-brown cloudy appearance. Nice rich aroma and a good bitterness that stays with you. First bitter I've ever had and I'm quite liking it

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - JUN 16, 2003

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 9, 2003
Draft: Light brown, thin head. Lightly hopped and medium maltiness. Not bad but a little thin.

TAR (2657) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - NOV 20, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2011 New Albanian used to be a formidable brewery (circa 2004), but that is no longer the case. Here is another once-solid offering which I now find to be muddled and unclean.

Very cloudy appearance, practically transluscent bronze. Subtle aroma includes apple, yeast, very earthy malt with lots of caramel, and a hint of pumpkin. The palate is on the fizzy side, yet the creaminess counteracts before the damage is done. A mild bitterness also manages to penetrate. Chewy flavors of raisin and pineapple. The finish shows mostly nuts. A really fine stateside Bitter.
