Poured a dark amber/red with a light had which faded to minimal lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet of malts with a slight odd hue of mushrooms. Taste is malty up front with a slight caramel middle and slight tangy twinge and light hop finish. Palate is decent. Overall, a decent Alt for the folks.

Hazy copper with a medium slowly fading tan topper. Aroma is cardboardy (best by Feb 2014) with graham, grains, earthy notes and toasted Munich malt. Taste is rather whole-grainy with barley, German malts, vegetal stalks, seeds and a zippy finish. The grain bill was a touch young or off and it seemed that way in several of their beers.

On tap at the Old Fashioned in Madison. Comes a clear reddish brown with a decent biege head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and caramel. Taste is caramel malt, lemon, dark fruits, and grass. Decent.

Bottle from Woodman’s Foods in Onalaska, WI. Clear copper pour with a quickly fading head. A bit of stale caramel malt stank on the nose. Taste isn’t bad - slight hop, sweet malts.

Port Huron Alt Bier. 12 oz. bottle, consumed on 3-10-13. Plum, red grape, raisin, toffee, sweet cigar tobacco, caramel, and apricot scents. Reminiscent in smell of an English dessert. Complex aroma is also dry with some tartness. Pours a dull but attractive copper with pleasant effervescence and a moderate amount of light taupe / cream-colored head. Dry taste features biscuit, cracker, caramel, toffee, and lemon flavors with a fruity sweetness. Coffee-bitter aftertaste. Medium body. Smooth and somewhat lively in the palate. Unremarkable palate effects. Port Huron Alt Bier is decent, drinkable, and more complex than I expected although not spectacular. 7/4/7/3/14=>3.5

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle thanks to nuplastikk: Pours a clear bright copper amber with a spotty-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted malty nose with fresh noble hops. Starts with average fullness and appropriate carbonation with a light malty sweetness and good bittering hop balance before a drier, toasty finish. Pretty true to style and quite drinkable.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Sampled on draught at the Great Taste of Midwest 2012 and at the brewery’s taproom in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper brown colored brew with a creamy off-white head that has some excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted carmel malt, some light citrus/grassy hops, a hint of old cellar wood and a touch of earthy spice. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of dried hard fruits, toasted caramel malt, a hint of grassy hops and some light citrus. Finish is semi-dry with more toasted caramel malt and light citrus aftertastes. Most definitely close to a Dusseldorf alt beer with a little American spice added.

12oz bottle. First rating! Filtered copper-orange. Steady, creamy, off-white head. Mellow malty aroma with a hint of noble hops. A pretty good stateside example of the style, malt centered with a caramel orange hop bitterness. Earthy, some woody notes. Easy medium body, perhaps too easy. Straightforward and enjoyable, but not really on par with an authentic version.
