COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our latest alt beer has a full copper color, a medium body, and a delicate hop finish. An extended period of cold conditioning makes for a smooth, clean, less fruity character.

Wow, this is one hoppy alt. The best way to describe the effect of thids beer is to let a very nice IPA mellow for a wee bit. You notice the hops but they don’t take over. I’ll post a better review when time and sobriety allow. Good beer to all those who are concerned though.

Goodbar beer club. Nose is slightly chocolate, rye, piney hops, resin, maybe a little orange. Flavor is iced tea, malt. Very hoppy for an alt. Bitter caramel finish.

Pronounced hop taste. Sweet malt balances nicely. Lingering hop bitterness.

Nate (3759) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2002
Sort of like an IPA/pils aroma, hoppy and sweet. Wierd yellow brown color with nice head. Smooth, creamy palate. Hoppy flavor, some malt, bitter finish. Sort of tasted like an alt but something not quite right.
