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.

Poured from bottle to glass. Poured a dark copper with an initially thick amber head with medium lacing. The head dissipated quickly to a very thin head. Aroma is caramel with subtle coffee and a bit floral. Tastes a bit of coffee, some hops, malty, and a bit of something green. Light mouthfeel, a bit of astringency on the finish. Long finish, but not particularly pleasant.

Typical doughy stink associated with alts, fruity notes too. Clear dark copper, two finger tan head. Dry, bready sweetness, reminds me of raspberries for some reason. Low carbonation, very smooth and downable. This brewer has been around for years and only make this and a couple other types. Pretty good stuff..cold weather session beer.

Meh. 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.

Enjoyed on tap at The Thirsty Moose. A bold tasting malt. Sweet malt in the aroma. Very dark red and lacey. A bit watery. Not so drinkable, maybe another place another time would yield better results.

[bottle] Slightly nutty aroma in front of plenty of noble hops along with some caramel apple and dried fruit accents. Hazy, Coca-Cola appearance under a thin foam of off-white. Dry, nutty flavour, like dry-roasted nuts, with a decent amount of bitterness and faint, spicy hops. Fairly weak in flavour, overall. Notes of tobacco and dried fruit. Light body, moderate carbonation, bitter nutty finish.

Cask at GBBF. Clear dark brown beer. Softish palate. Sourish malt with an odd spicy tone. Finishes dry. A bit odd.

Dark amber/cider color; Light to medium body; Aroma of toasted malt, some caramel, & spice; Flavor of slight roasted sweet malt, caramel, hops, and some fruit; Finish is slightly bitter and a little tart; Overall, a bit thin - decent I guess for a session brew.

Pours a deep amber color. Clear. Aroma is of malts, slight skunk, burnt rubber, and maybe some eggs. Flavor is very mild. I can pick up malts, bark, hops, rye, and grain. Leaves a bitter weed finish. Very let down by these guys.
