This one pours with good head that diminished quickly. The aroma has a mild fruitiness, German hops/yeast apparent; Color: a mirky straw, a bit cloudy. Body: fairly light and thin; Flavor: hoppy, lingering dryness, perfumy; astringent and fairly bitter; metallic. Fairly unbalanced, too bitter for me. Generally not at all impressed with this one.

Pours with a two-fingered white head that fades slowly and leaves some lace. Low carbonation. Slightly cloudy amber color but no chunky bits. Nose is slightly hoppy. Starts with a hoppy dryness and leaves with an aftertaste that has a slight bitterness. To be honest I find it boring. Light bodied. $3.89 for a 500ml bottle.

color is hazy light golden, head is miniscule. aroma is slightly buttery, and grainy. flavor is immediately tart with the first sip..the tartness mostly lingers. flavor seems to have a wheat-like character to it...eh

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2004
Pale yellow with a disappearing white head. Malty aroma and a crisp, slightly bitter taste. Not a bad drink.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Aroma very strong and complex - grassy hops mixed with almost a wheat/rye. Poured very carbonated with a quickly dissipating head. Strength belies its aroma, as it smells heavier than it is. This light/medium-bodied ale has a lively mouthfeel and lots of subtastes. There is lots of character here, just can't distinguish the parts. Dry acidic finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2004
Light hazy blonde straw color with low carbonation and light head; no lacing. Some maltiness in the aroma with lots of acidic citrus and a lots of toasty biscuity malts. Wonderful mash job! The flavor is complex with some light sweet malty notes, the lack of hops here to undercut the balance is beneficial and comes through very unique and almost tangy. Finishes acidic and sweet with a light salty tail. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and rich. This is a pretty eclectic brew, unique and flavorful, I like it. Session, yet complex & flavorful.

I am glad I was informed beforehand that this is not an "altbier" - its called "alt" because its an old = "alt" style of german ale. Fruity, malty aroma, dark yellow cloudy colour. The taste is fruity and sweety, with a slight citrus sourness as its goes down. faint hops, but they come out in the aftertaste. This would make a very enjoyable summer session beer.

Light golden with small disappearing head. Slight lactic acidity, grass, cereal-sweetness. Very refreshing.

I'm not sure why it's called an Alt, it's quite light in color. (More like your typical German lager, but hazy). However, the flavor is quite crisp and refreshing with a slight citrus feel. I kinda like this one.

cloudy, with a white foam head. Flavor was slightly sweet, but unimpressive.
