An ultra-premium all-malt and traditional German-style ale at 5% alc./vol. Deep copper to light brown colour with an aromatic focus on malt elements of fresh baked biscuits and toast. Malt initially dominates the palate with typical Altbier flavours of biscuits, followed by an intense yet pleasant hop bitterness. A slightly dry body and reduced ale fruitiness is achieved by extended deep-cold aging. Can be served with beef soups, spinach salad, roast chicken, pork tenderloin, falafel, chocolate cake, and smoked cheeses.

Pours a flat clear orange-amber with a small diminishing white head. Aroma and flavour of malt and not much else. Body is flat with an unpleasant aftertaste.

Clear coppery colour. Toffee and caramel aroma. Light body, fast flavour some sweet toffee flavour. Not as boring as I thought i’d be but my expectations have been pretty low.

Draft. Copper pour, medium off-white head. Taste of caramel, toffee. Nice medium body. Towards the end I did get a bit of an off taste though.

Bottle - Bread and dark grains. Clear copper with a beige head. Toffee and grains. Nice sweetness and caramel flavours, with some slight chocolate notes. There is an odd smell that translates to the flavour. The best of their offerings.

341 ml bottle from brewery. Pours as advertised, copper, clear with off-white lacing-leaving head. Smells malty and bready with some sweet apple notes. Taste is nice balanced malt, no booze, bread, biscuit, sugary molasses finish.

sudomorph (966) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
341ml bottle. pours a crystal clear dark copper with a two finger, slightly off-white head. Aroma is slightly fruity and metallic with notes of apple, caramel, and bread. Taste a balanced with a touch of roast, bread, and slight fruit. Short aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty clean and crisp in the mouth. Overall not bad but could be better. Taste is ok but the aroma could be a bit bigger. Might buy again. Cheers!

More than the appearance, this one actually tastes a little coppery. Some crisp malt, some caramel. Comes together ok. Pours with good head and lacing, finish is a little bitter. Average carbonation. Bottle from brewery.

Not my style of beer. Too many hops. Although the first taste was good. but then the after taste is all hops. But to their credit this is not as hoppy as an IPA.
