Pours reddish brown in colour, thin tin head, lots if lace. Nice malt aroma and flavour.

solidfunk (2992) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 13, 2012
Smells like malt, has a very typical altbier aftertaste with a lot of bitter barley. Really good lacing. Bitterness has good presence, a kind of grainy bitterness. Decent. On tap at WVRST.

On tap @ Gig’s - taps a lightly hazed copper-orange with a puffy lasting off white cap. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is robust with Munich red malts - toasty and noble hopping, some light fruitiness. Medium bodied creamy mouth feel, smooth malt accented character. Flavor is fairly well balanced between toasty-bready malts and herbal woody hops - long dry bittersweet nutty malty finish with a hop bite. If I closed my eyes I’d think I was drinking a fresh Dusseldorf Alt. I enjoy this lagered amber ale and it is probably the best Albier we have had in this market since the Duckstein supply dried up.

AWS9 (462) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2012
On tap. Brown/copper pour with decent white head. Malt backing with hints of spice and caramel. Somewhat smoky? Pretty solid brew. And the award for driest beer review goes tooooo...

herrbrown1974 (424) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2012
On tap. Brown amber pour. Bubbly tan head. Aroma is nutty, straw, toffee and slight citrus and soapy bitterness. Medium chalky mouthfeel. Bitter throughout, medium sour finish. I found this stuff a little rough around the edges.

PatIrish (168) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2012 On tap, pours a nice amber with a soft lacy head. Aroma carries elements if toast, roasted nuts, biscuit and even a earthiness. On the palate very crisp, clean tasting with a bit of nuttiness. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HogTownHarry (5983) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
December 21, 2012 - on draught on "hippy solstic day" in Kensington Market at Buger Bar. Coppery amber pour, bubbly, small off-white head. Mild aroma, somewhat bitter, oily grain, a hint of woodiness but I was hard-pressed to derive anything from repeated sniffs. Taste is intensely grainy and bitter, like dried straw, a bit boozy too - I wasn’t digging it at all. Solid body, chewy, very astringent, weakly carbonated, with a long coating bitterness in the finish which was sadly harsh, generic and grassy. Ehhh. Maybe try another batch and re-rate?

mabel (5371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2012
[4192-20111215] Bottle. Floral toasty grains aroma. Clear, light amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Sweet caramel toast and leafy hops flavour. Medium body. Tasty but a little sweet. (7/3/7/3/13) 3.3

blankboy (5797) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2012
Draught at Burger Bar. Dec. 21, 2011. Pours a clear deep copper-gold with a small diminishing frothy off-white head. Mild, slightly sweet aroma of grain, caramel malt and spices. Flavour’s a nice surprise as I’m not a huge fan of the style, with lightly toasted caramel malt, grain, fruit and a decent bitter finish -- just a touch watery but not enough to detract. Average bodied. Pretty good, I enjoyed it.

Sammy (8092) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2011
On tap at Burger Bar. Mahogany coloured body, no head. Malty though not exceptionally rich aroma. A little hoppy taste, with toasted malt. A tad above average mouthfeel, however also a little sour and astringent. Not very complex
