3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2006 Bottled. Brown with garnet highlights, maybe too dark for this style. A surprising smoky quality, but also a taste of adjunct appears to be involved.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured with a nice, full, thick, rich, foamy, textured, light tan head with lots of lace. Odd definite Bavarian Weisse aroma and flavor character to it. Other than that pretty decent. NIce softness to it, both in flavor and body. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a rich brown with small off-white head. Lacing. Nose is grainy, with a touch of flowery hops and some deeper yeast notes - aroma is somewhat like a whiff of multigrain bread baking. Flavor is simple but good, some caramel notes, a little fruitness, crusty bread, herbs, just a touch of smokiness before a palate cleansing earthy herbal bitterness. A very good old world ale that is rewarding and quaffable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Pours a clear brownish-amber hue with an average beige head and some lacing. Aroma is full of caramel, some grains, straw,and dark fruits. Taste is slightly sweet, slight bitter chocolate, some earthiness with a dry finish which lets the hops come out. A little bitter zap on the tongue but enjoyable. Medium body with good carbonation. Not chewy at all compared to a brown ale.

Schmaltz’s Alt is one of those beers that, after enjoying the first few, you hide the others in the back of the beer fridge so you can pull them out when you want something special. The many malts dominate the taste all the way through, sweet and thick without being heavy. Having drank those two bottles hiding in the back tonight, I’m looking forward to Schmaltz’s return to the store shelf.
