Ernest (6354) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, roasted nuts), lightly hoppy (herbs, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough), with light notes of raisin and plum. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, heavily bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Pleasant, maybe a little too much yeast in the aroma for my liking (when I’ve had it on draught in Duesseldorf it seemed even more yeasty). Nice and toasty/crusty otherwise, though, with a nifty fruity character. Quite bitter, perhaps even to the point of being unbalanced. Good, not great.

Bottle dated 14 April. I’m spending my Super Bowl watching time enjoing this and <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/uerige-sticke/21 Sticke. I find this actually has more character. Pours a rocky head, which remains as chunks of foam on the sides of the glass. Deep copper in color, highly malty and hoppy smell. taste is of caramel malts, then a Super-size dose of German hops. It’s like a German IPA; the biggest smack of hops I’ve in a German beer. It’s a highly entertaining total beer experience.

WTF mate. Is this an alt? Other than the crazy bottle I don’t really know what to say. The hops/malt combo was pretty nice. It was vague where the malt stopped and the hops started.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2005
Dark amber color with a thin head. Dusty malt aroma. Quite a dry and bitter taste of malt. There’s not much more than that, but it’s good at what it aims to be.

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2005
This came in a nifty looking slim neck bottle with a swing top. This poured a murky brownish amber color with about 2 inches of off white head. As the head eventually dropped this left good sized sheets of lace all around the glass. The aroma was of a roasted grain and slightly sweet malt. There was a small earth toned hop presence that added to the scent to the scent as well. Taste was of sweet caramel malt backed with more doughy malt. Hops gave it a slightly bitter after taste. The taste was very clean and dry which left you wanted more each time you took a sip. Pretty impressive taste for the size of the beer. Mouthfeel was medium with a nicely carbonated feel to it. This beer goes down very smoothly and would make a perfect sessionable brew. Having tried this has definitely peaked my interest in the style, highly recommended.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Bottled. Pours murky brownish red with very little head. Aromas of cherries and spices. Strange maltiness that builds in strength until the dry, bitter aftertaste kicks in. I find it just a bit tart with a good balance of hops. This style isn’t one of my mainstays but I actually found this beer to be pretty good.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2004
From a swing-top "extra-longneck" bottle. Copper-red color with a thin white head with good lacing down the glass. Floral smell of noble hops and some darker malt aromas. A light caramel malt flavor followed by moderate noble hop flavor with a lasting bitter finish. Possibly a little light bodied, but nonetheless a very drinkable brew.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Odd bottle, tasty beer. Pours a medium amber color, with a medium sized tan head. Nice malty aroma, cookie, bread, caramel, light fruity hops. Medium sweetness, toasty, cookie like malt, some decent bitterness for a bit of balance. Medium body carries it across well. Quite enjoyable.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2004
A delicious alt beer, nice orange color, malty, but with enough hops to make it balanced. I wanted more when I finished the bottle, quality beer.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 15, 2004
Orangish cherry color with light white head. Nose is a sweet malt mixed with light hops. Med weight on the palate with a big hop presence and dry bitter finish. Refreshign flavors that are light in malt and high in hops, more austere than most bitter beers, almost apertif in quality. Roasted notes seem hidden behind the hops, this is a nice beer!
