Very interesting. Looking it it reminds me of a pilsner with a really nice head. Great lace as well. Smells of a light malt and a little fruity. Tastes light. There's really not much taste, but not like a macro. It has character, I just can't figure out how to describe it. It's crisp and refreshing. Mouthfeel is also light. Drinkability is good because it's clean and one could easily drink this for the night.

Great looking glass of beer, tall and thick white head just over an inch high, golden straw yellow body, head settles slowly to a thick hazy foam, lace sticks amazingly well in clumpy patches. Aroma is lightly malty sweet and fruity, kinda like sourdough bread and eggs, notes of vanilla, almond, and strawberry. An inticing nose, but lightly so. Taste is mild, some short lived bready sweetness, lightly fruity with strawberry and honeydew, subdued tangyness, malts are quite sweet and frothy fresh. Takes a bit of getting use to, but once it settles in and warms up some it ain't half bad. Feel is close to medium, carbonation is pretty full and raspy in texture with a full on sweetness sticking around long after each sip. A strange, sweetly fruity brew, a bit enjoyable, but I think I'd rather be drinkin' something else.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - NOV 17, 2003
Very light, pale, straw like color, clouded, strong head formation, light carbonation. Strong malty dark fruit aroma. Sweet fruity flavor, dark fruit prune malts, mild orangey balance. Slight bitter balance in the finish but stays sweet throughout. Either I'm not a fan or I should have read Oakes commenst and cellared it for a couple of years.

Reid (2254) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 13, 2003
bought in the brown pint bottle..with the Organic label. The aroma of the bber was pretty strong and mostly malty..though one can detect a little hop zest in the background..spicy too. MM taste is like a spiced up golden ale..not bad at all..but not what i expect from an altbier. pretty pleasant on the palte and an easy drinker.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Very light aroma. Slightly sweet body. Not even close to what I would think of as an alt. More of a Belgian Pale Ale. Still, a decent session beer.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - NOV 7, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2004 Golden/yellow in color with a slight haze and some particles floating around, a moderate head and excellent ring lacing. Smells like the malt house on a brewery tour with a lemony note, and I'm reminded of a freshly mowed wheat field. Medium bodied, fairly sweet and fruity with a citrus twang and subdued bitterness. Like 'em or not, Pinkus beers seem to have a style all their own.

JoeM500 (1908) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2003
Munster Alt label from Merchant DuVin. Slightly hazy dark yellow with a huge meringue-like white head. Yeasty, fruity nose, very sweet. First sip is rich and creamy with much sweetness. Light taste has hints of plum and something a bit tangy. Creamy as any beer out there. But the taste just falls apart.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Bottle. Pale light orange yellow cloudy color with nice white head. Didn't taste much like an alt, more like a helles crossed with a pilsener. Very drinkable, with a touch of honey, clean and smooth.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Sweet, fruity and bready aroma. Thick fluffy head and slightly cloudy golden appearance. Sweet banana clove-type flavor reminiscent of a belgian ale. An interesting beer, but nothing very memorable.
