Golden yellow hue. Clean white head is slowly diminishing. Grassy malts first, mellow with nice carbonation, almost pilsner like finish.. Bitter and refreshing.

Sweet sourish aroma, golden amber, little head. Malt, honey and a hint of manderine flavour. Sweet, delightful mouthfeel. A pleasant surprise!

amazingly smooth... nice ale taste with zero after taste. One of the best ale’s i’ve had. Can’t beat anything that follows the purity law .

Aurelius (3903) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2002
Oaty alt aroma. Slightly hazy, orangey gold with shaving cream foam. This is the lightest alt that I’ve ever seen, looks like a golden ale or a pilsener. Very good flavor, some plum some oat, light to moderate hopping, with a little tart twang on the backend. Lousy label, but a good bottle.

YogiBeera (2435) - Hamburg, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2002
Nice hoppy and fruity aroma. Golden body with a big frothy fast diminishing head. Long bitter flavor and a fizzy carbonation. I liked this a lot.

SpaceMonkey (182) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 17, 2002
This smells like honey. There’s a bit of hop nose in the back, but not much. It just smells like honey with a little lemon, and fairly clean. Topped with a thin, solid white, mirobubble head, it looks doubly pale gold with just a touch of haze. There is a smooth citrus tast with a splattering of malt, and a smithereen of hops. There’s also some tart aftertast, but it doesn’t last. Clean and crisp, easy going down, it’s just not very big with taste, a bit toned down.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2002
A nice ’Organically Cloudy’ golden amber color, the head and lace are quite abundant. Nose is malt, a bit earhty, slight citrus tones also noticed. First sip starts malt, with a light top and a dry, acidic and nicely hopped finish. I tend to like Organic and unfiltered beers. They have a certain earthy muskyness that I like. Ranks #638 on my master list of beers.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 25, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2009 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), with light notes of honey and tangerine. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation. Very attractive hop and ester notes, but otherwise pretty unremarkable.

tasting this beside a frankenheim alt, with which it has no resemblance other than brown glassware packaging. while the frankenheim is as brown as a business shoe, the munster is a soft warm yellow like a golden retriever. an attractive crest of balsa colored foam that lingered around like it was expecting to encounter something more engaging than the business end of my schnoz. big aroma of yellow apple, alcohol, a baguette and butter: pretty much your basic french picnic basket of aromas, although a sour note as well. i have to echo the kolsch/weizen analogy: tart and fruity and sweet. citrus and cider like finish. interesting and full of character, just not my type.

ravidesai (940) - Bombay, INDIA - JUN 26, 2002
yellow color, big frothy head, caramel sugar nose. malty taste with a tart yeasty smoked quality. somewhat of a alt-kolsch hybrid style.
