Session Sunday at Bar Hop. $5 pints of select brews. Thist altbier by Sawdust City is balanced and flavourful, and sessionable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Barhop, Toronto
Amber color with creamy head. Vulgar aroma, some bread, caramel and light puke. Dry caramel flavor, with a dusty edge; ordinary bitterness. Not the right malt profile to be an Alt. Quite boring.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Imbibe. Clearish brown, small tan head. Aroma is fairly simple, caramalt, hint of maple I guess, really unremarkable. Flavour is better, nice malt backbone, sweeter, mild dryness in finish, but for something called ’woody’ one might expect some more. Not bad but I wouldn’t go out of my way for this again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
