MartinT (8247) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2011 There is plenty of lasting foam which laces atop the clear russet...Wooden hops and caramel malt are all light, all perfectly intertwining...The fluffy carbonation and quite dry mouthfeel makes the salient earthy hop bitterness stand out very nicely... This bitter finish, with chocolatey edges, of an intensity and depth rarely seen in Germany...Dark bread allusions show up once in a while...

Rastacouere (6145) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2007 Chestnut brown clear hue. Little to no off-white head. Deep malt character complements the huge orangey and perfumey hops. Caramel, earth, yeah this is how you do it. Lightly tart on the mouth, but I like that in this case as it dances along the bitterness rather than slashing it. Earthy palate, powerful grassiness, herbal, nice dry-out effect take on the rich malt to prolong the hop flavors. Very soft carbonation. firm medium body. Very good alt!

From tap at the brewpub, this was by far the sharpest alt, very hoppy and dry in mouth with a firm leafy, sandy, earthy hop dose. Healthy and easy to drink. Maintaining the same score.

qdog (201) - Cleveland, Mississippi, USA - DEC 4, 2004
bottle, clear brown/amber in color, hoppy smell with a hoppy bitter taste, nice white head.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Copper color with a good size off white head that lasted until the end of the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Flavor of toasted malt and toffee quickly gives way to a pronounced hop bitterness. Sharp looking bottle.

rauchbier (3639) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2004
Direct from wooden cask at the brewpub. Copper bronze, good off white head and fine gentle condition. Subdued fruity malt and good hop aromas, much more assertive in the mouth with a solid caramel maltiness and excellent chalky spicy hop notes. Long malty finish with a good hoppy prickle of bitterness and hints of pine resin.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2004
Light amber/orange in color. Light friuty hop aroma up front. Smooth body. Slight bitter hop finish with a nice aftertaste. Enough hops to remind you of an IPA. Pretty decent overall.

3.3
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2004
Dark Sunset. Deep, somewhat buried, yet pleasing aroma of dried red apple skins, hardened caramel, melted toffee along with other identifiable malt tones and an undeniable earthy and herbal hop presense. Nice malty sweetness giving notes of fruits, medicines and toasted malts. The hop presense is peppery, herbal and fairly bitter.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - NOV 18, 2004
Bottle. Decent Alt. Light copper color. Very clean tasting with big hop finish. Decent.

Pailhead (5271) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2004
Bottle: Light roasty hop aroma. Transparent yellowish-orange with white head. Nice lacing. Light roastiness in the flavor with a hoppy finish. Does not seem like an altbier. More IPA than alt. Moderate hop aftertaste.

3.5
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Silphium (3186) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2004
Copper-orange body with abundant dark suspended sediment, big cream head. Aroma of light fruit, spicy hops, and hints of wet sock. Spicy, crackery, toasty flavor with dried flower petals and potpourri. Caramels develop over time as do abundant yeast flavors. Bitter finish. I had the Sticke Alt on tap earlier this year and think that beer was a bit smoother, but this is enjoyable nonetheless.
