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.

Doesn’t really remind me of true altbier but likea malty amber. It isn’t bad but not on style.

12 oz. bottle pours a clear but dark reddish brown with decent beige head and some lacing. Aroma is full of caramel malts some grains and dark fruits. Taste is slightly sweet with a dry finish which lets the hops come out. Body is medium with lively carbonation. Quite enjoyable for what it is.

Bottle pour. I’m not even German and I still liked this. Carbonation is what stuck out as a bit weird to me here.

Tap. Pour is brown. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, and nut. Taste is bitter and foul. Some caramel comes through but is dominated by a almost sourness of decomposing grass.
