COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A German Style brown ale brewed with dark, rich Belgian specialty malts and domestic whole hops. The alt will have a dark copper color and will have a slightly fruity, bittersweet flavor. It is a beer for the more adventurous, for people with an appreciation for a beer with a rich malt character and a balanced hop finish.

Bottle from Hannaford Raymond NH. Aroma is yeasty dough with a little bit of leather. Appearance is a pretty reddish amber with mild haze (from live yeast), nice sparkle and two-finger off-white creamy foam head. Taste is mostly mild malty sweetness over mild bitter with a bit of yeast still present that gives a little unfinished quality to it. Palate is light to medium bodied with thin texture, lively carbonation with a little sting to the tip of the tongue and very mild bitter finish. Overall, this beer is true to its style but doesn’t do so as boldly and richly as the description would suggest. Pretty average.

Bottle brought to dinner by my Uncle, thanks Jeff! Pours reddish brown with a creamy off white head. Aroma is caramel, nuts, mild citrus. Flavor is sweet caramel, some fruity esters, citrus, grassy bitter in the finish.

Bulk_Carrier (2676) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a stange. The appearance had a decent somewhat clear red color with a decent half finger white foamy head that gracefully dissipated into the beer. There was some light lacing sticking nicely to the glass. The smell had a decent roasted nuttiness blended into a light caramel maltiness. The taste was somewhat sweet with a semi-thick nutty breadiness. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about it. Overall, not a bad altbier, though this could have also gone as an American Amber/Red, no worries as I’d have it again if available.

Bottle. Crazy carbo results in a towering beige head on a slightly hazy copper body. Low aroma, principally grainy with light caramel. Grainy body as well, light fruity caramel, slightly reedy with a sharp hoppy bite. I much preferred the Altitude, which apparently is the original recipe for this beer? Should have stuck with Plan A.

Pours brown with an initial foamy head that lasts for a bit. Aromas are nutty, English breakfast tea, maybe grass, maybe some caramel. Tastes are mostly sweet, with some limited bitterness. Fairly light in the mouth with lots of carbonation

Pours hazy, woody brown with a thick, light tan head. Aroma is caramel malt. Very malty, caramel with a sort of tree-bark bittering. Mild, tasty.
