There is a sweetness in the nose and the palette that dominates and hop taste. Nothing fruity or bitter about it. I am tempted to score it higher because it seems to be well crafted to style, but its overall impression is some how lacking. A simple beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Clear amber pour with copper highlights and a small, creamy, white head. The nose offers a blend of spicy hops and pistachio pralines - they probably don’t exist, but they should. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. Leans a touch toward the bitter side of balance, but also offers generous measures of caramel and nuttiness. Finishes hearty, toasty and lightly bitter. Not quite like any altbier I’ve tried before. I dig it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is malty and dusty with grain husks and grassy hops. The appearance is amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall an average beer.

Very pleasant dark Altbier with a solid malty base and some spicy hops sprinkled on top and into the aftertaste. Slightly watery.
