3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slihgtly hazy (initial chill haze- but clears, medium amber- deep copper with a thin lasting head. Aroma is frutiy esters, sweet caramel malts, and nice herbal spicy hops. Flavor is initially light sweet malts, and finishes mostly hoppy with a nice herbal bitter finihs. Body is light to medium, but lacks a litle bit compared to Uerige Alt. A bit too fruity overall with wierd plastic phenols mixed in.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at State College BrewExpo. Has a mild arom, one of mild dusty wheat and light hops. A bit bready. Light brown clear in appearance with medium body and carbonation. Nice sweet malt taste but subdued with light bitterness, like it ought to be for an altbier. Not exactly up there with the samples von der Altstadt but I’d like to have more of this. Unfortunately, it’s not going to be made until next year, and again only in kegs for Circa restaurants in the Jersey area.
