Pours a hazy brownish copper with a slightly nice foamy off white head. Aroma is of roasted malts with a nice touch of hops. Flavour is malty at first, but the extra dose of hops dry this out and make it a pleasure to drink. Great stuff.

I didn’t like it at all, and I don’t think I can properly describe the displeasure I had while drinking it, so I won’t try. A sickly-sweet syrupy mess.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy copper body with a thick, fluffy off-white head that produces very interesting rocky formations. Malty aroma with whole grains, nuts, light, earthy hops, a little caramel (or is it toffee?) and a touch of vanilla. The body is hefty enough to handle the surprisingly big flavors. Nice, smooth and lightly sweet malt character is followed immediately by strong, bitter hops that show all sorts of greatness. Some pine character and a little citrus, but the largest piece is influenced by earthy, plant-like hops. Great flavor with a huge hop presence. While it does seem to be at it’s freshest, it’s still damn good. When fresh, this must be amazing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beautiful amber color, and a really impressive bottle. Not much of an aroma, or a taste for that matter. Somewhat acidic/bitter, a little bit of sweetness in the aftertaste. Didn’t enjoy it.

Ok this beer taste like smokey water. I think there was a fire at the brewery, and this is the water they used to extinguish the fire. Not a good beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ruddy and husky hazen copper brown color, thin, fluffy, beige cap sits briefly, a firm collar remains and a whispy skim; minimal stringy lacing sticks.
Aroma is rich with sweet yet yielding maltyness, honey, nuts, buttered toast, and dried wild flowers or grasses.
Taste has some delicate nuances and subtleties, starts smooth and inviting with tame caramel and light toasty malts but gradually builds with nuts and grassy floral hop tones that are very mild on the bittering, but really nice to let unravel. Bits of whole grain toast make a nice appearance just past midway. Very lovely in that regards, real nice. Finishes with some sweeter candyish fruity malts mixing with the hop tones and toast and drys out very calmly. Super fine and yummy finish.
Feel is quick to be smooth and long to finish with a well rounded medium body and texture thoughout. Favorable buttery and candied sweetness keeps some teriffic balance over the flowery, grassy hops. T’was gone in no time...need more soon.

Bottle. Cool looking bottle. Really thin neck with a swing top cap. Well, i always thought it was perhaps going to be a little bit stale. Motelpogo said to me that alts are always better from the source, and i will take his word for it. Even though this was a little stale, there was still alot to be pleased about. Soft toffee malts. Grassy, herbal hops in the finish, nice, soft, dry palate. Very nice, if a little stale.
