3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Somewhat hazy, orangish amber appearance with a big foamy, tan head. Notably more hoppy than other Altbiers. Medium piney hops and a sweet caramel malty nose. Earthy, piney hoppy flavor on a quite sweet caramel malty flavor with some nuttiness. Much more aggressive flavor than the typical Uerige Alt. Somewhat hoppy bitter, dry finish. My least favorite of the Uerige Alt, Doppel Sticke, and this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Clear copper ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. Malty, herbal aroma... toffee, dried fruits and medicinal notes with a touch of licorice. Malty flavor, but very well-bittered for good balance. Full-bodied and deeply creamy with moderate carbonation. Lingering, bitter finish.
