3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve noticed that the amount of Alt character has diminished significantly over the last year. I hope it is a seasonal thing because the flavour is yeast derived and colder fermentation temps will give more of it. Anyway, it is a bright copper coloured ale, lightly hopped - to style - and a little sweeter than style guidelines. Alt character is fully evident, more at times then others (varies from season to season).

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
341ml bottle. Moderate, sticky head, good copper colour. Aroma is very malty, kind of tootsie roll, with some toffee, chocolate and some herbal and metallic. Taste is much like the aroma, though a bit more full. Body is light and crisp, very refreshing. Overall, quite enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Originally rated April 2005. This Ontario altbier pours a brown-amber colour with some decent lacing. Smells the roasted malts and a nice bouquet of purfum. Very light carbonation. The taste is malty with caramel and is also nutty. Slight bitterness in the middle. Creamy moutheel and smooth aftertaste. Good product from Magnotta Brewery, just like their IPA.
