This alt-ternative Brown lager is assertively hopped, yet smooth as silk. Opi grays the line between a Dusseldorf Alt and a Brown. Its as freestyle as Opis flop, yet less painful. Enjoy

Sampler @ the brewery. Aroma is nice, nutty, with a musty bread thing going on. Flavor is unique for sure - some sourness and prunes mix in with the malt, and the finish is dry with nice bitterness. All in all, its a very unique take, but kind of all over the place. In other words, it was good, but Im not sure Id order it again.

On tap at the Oso tasting room. Copper with an off-white head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of caramel, nuts, cereal grains and toasted malt. Taste of roasted malt, nuts, mild citrus and mild fruit.

Thanks to Skyview. Dark copper color with a large head. Strong, rich malt aroma and a distinct spiciness. Smells like rye! Thick, chewy malt body. Dark fruit and more of the rye spiciness. Finishing slightly dry with an earthy hop. Nice!

Bottle from Cellar 70 in Stevens Point. This beer seems like it is trying to take you in multiple directions all at the same time. It is drinkable but certainly not their best brew.

Oso Brewery night at Three Cellars. As always a agood balance and very smooth. Almost like a Brown light on the malt.

Pours copper with milky off-white head. Aroma of dehumidifier water and basement musk. Flavor is a bit barleywine-ish and malty.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2008
On draught at the brewery taproom in Plover,Wisconsin. Pours a clear brownish cooper brew with a creamy off-white head that quickly dissolves but leaves behind thin off-white head and some spotty lacing. Aroma of toasted caramel malt, some citrus and flowery hops with a touch of apple character. Taste is quite different. Though a light to medium bodied and agood balance of carbonation this alternative Altbier has a light caramel and biscuit malt flavor with some bourbon/barley wine flavors and a nobel hop character. Finish is slightly sweet with a light barley wine finish and a mild bitter aftertaste. Not as dry as most other altbiers Ive tried but it is quite the alternative Altbier.
