HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Copper in color with medium to high of carbonation. Small lasting off-white head that laces nicely. Flavor is slightly roasted and nutty with a bitter zing in the end. There’s a lasting bitterness in my mouth that’s makes you want to have another sip.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Orangy copper color, clear and distinct with a flow of strong bubbles coursing up after every sip, small, densely sitting foam cap resides to a ever present hazy skim. Lacing in thin foamy sheets. Aroma is toasty with nuts and caramel with a light herbal hop touch. Taste is remarkably nice, very nice and smooth toasty factions of malts, some whole grain goodness, smokey barley seeps, light caramel and unsalted nuts gain and help smooth it out. Great herbal hop biting finish thats just a nudge spicy and holds on to the palate for a good ride. Like that finish. Feel is about medium, starts a bit grainy with a solid hold and carbonation but drifts off some to a lighter finish, but thats where the nice hop finish does its thing so it more then makes up for it. As far as quaffing, this stuff takes the cake, very smooth, a nice balance and meld of subtle flavors. Very delish and drinkable; gone in no time cuz that 11.2 oz bottle ain’t nearly enough.

sloth (2502) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Medium sized tan head, good retention and some splotchy sticky lacing. Clear light brown/ copper hued brew. Light malt nose, some graininess. Medium body. Faint malt flavors, hint of caramel and slight chocolate undertones. Finish is dry with a metallic aftertaste. All around thin, boring.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2004 copper body, nice balance of caramel malt and woodland hop...... more to come!

Very unique Bottle! Ok, I’m back! This was such a strange find at the beer store today! I’m not really acquainted with Alts but this was rather tasty. Malty up front and then a very dry earthy hoppy finish! Notes of iron in the aroma and flavor yet covered with some oak and a smidgeon of toasty caramelized sugars!

egajdzis (5365) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Copper color with a small head with some lacing. Sweet malty aroma, some spices (cardamom?), toasty and roasty as well. Nicely balanced malt taste with a hop finish. I like the Sticke better.

mkobes (2141) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2004
Deep orange in color. Nice head. Peppery flavor. Malty. Hoppy. Very malty with bitterness flavor that lingers. Full flavored beer.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Pours a clear deep orange with a nice tan head. Has a tight fruity peppery aroma, reminicent of Alt yeast strains. Malty bitter flavor that lingers. The malt and hops battle for supremacy. This is a full flavored light beer at 4.5%, for sure!

bierkoning (10386) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Bottle: Trink Gut Getränkehalle in Kleve. Slight coffee and caramel aroma. Very hoppy flavor, a bit raw. Hint of licorice, vanilla and metal. Long bitter aftertaste. uality alt, must be even better from the brewery tap. A later sample gave a flowery hoparoma, a persistant earthy hopbitter flavor with roast, a hint iof licorice and salt and an earthy flowery long lasting aftertaste. Brewery tap: wow!! Hoppy, oily and also malty. Only medium bodied, but what a power stuff! Low on carbon. Light flowery hoparoma. The true greatness of this beer unfolds itself straight from the wooden cask. all n all, an excellent altbier, fresh, complex and perfectly drinkable.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Is this stuff new to the USA? All of a sudden, everyone's got it. After opening the bottle and drinking it, all I could think was this bottle would make a good bong. I don't see what the fuss is. For an Alt, it's a little better than average, but as what I like, average at best.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Clear and deep amber-brown. Soft, easy-drinking mouthfeel. Yeasty, bready nose. A pinch of caramel sweetness behind a toasty, cracker-like malt base. Sharpish, peppery hop bitterness. Drying hop finish is long. Has to be one of the more interesting alts I've had. Thanks, Scott!
