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.

Pours a transluscent deep amber/brown with a creamy beige head that fades to a thin cap. The nose mildly acetic fruit and slight phenol with biscuity malts and caramel. The flavour is far different than the aroma suggests, with toasted, grainy malts and bitter, high alpha (citirc) hops and a whisper of nuts. There are a lot of vague, bordering flavours that give the impression o complexity, but it’s not all too complex. There is a faintly hoppy, syrupy sweet finish that leaves no distict flavours. I think the Belgian malts are a little mismatched with the hops selected. The mouthfeel is thin, gently carbonated and oily.

Thank you Steve/Coldbrewky! It’s a mahogany colored beer with a nice creamy head. The aroma has notes of yeast, caramel and malt. The mouthfeel is flat. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of caramel, malt and a bit of citrus. It has a nice body, is uncomplicated and easy to drink.

A pounder. Pours a medium brown with a nice foam head. Subtle in taste. A little malty. A little hoppy. Perhaps a little a nutty. Carbonation is right in the middle. You could easily drink a lot of these. Consistent in taste upon the replay. Nothing stands out about this beer, but that’s what I like about it.

12oz bottle-pours a retaining foamy tan head and mahogany color. Aroma is roasty, medium malt-somewhat sweet caramel. Taste is roasty, medium malt-somewhat sweet caramel, continental hops-with some up front bitterness, which is slightly awkward, faint nuttiness. Medium body, nice dryish finish. OK effervescence.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2007
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a fluffy off-white head. A bit of sweet nutty caramel aroma with hoppy hints. Medium-to-light body and moderate carbonation. Taste much like the aroma. Soft, lightly bitter finish.

Bottle. Had a whole six pack of this, so i really did have a enough to decide whether i liked it or not. I thought it was good. A nice malt character, which was probably a little sweeter and richer than your typical altbier, there, is perhaps a slightly higher hop profile as well, but then again, it is quite balanced. Some very soft bitterness in the finish. Pleasant, i could, and did, drink a few of these.

Not really an alt, but not bad by any stretch either. Medium brown in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and bready malt.Dry and thin finish with a moderately high level of bitterness in the start that fades to subltely sweet.

coldbrewky (1418) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - APR 9, 2007
Crisp gentle hop nose with hints of pollen. Pours a clear medium brown that is bright in the glass. A woody bitterness that clears the palate swiftly. A thinner body could be worked on. My cats seem to like it.

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2007
[bottle] Nice nutty aroma, some light sweetness. Brown, slightly hazy appearance. Flavors are nutty malts, barely sweet and quite drinkable, but not really outstanding in any way. Thin bodied, with pretty strong carbonation.

(Bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/new-hampshire/g target=blank>Glen Beverage) OK but kind of dull...Pours clear brown with a very big foamy light tan head. Smells lightly of caramel and milk chocolate. Mouthfeel a bit thin and dry, lightly fizzy. Nice lacing. Flavor is weakly chocolatey, something else in there as well that seems a bit off. Perhaps a hint of sour.
