2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very forgettable beer. Only remarkable thing here is a little tin, maybe iron - not sure as I have difficulty distinguishing my metals. A little hops at the end, but finishes generally sour. Pours maroon with ok head and lacing. On tap at brewery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Maloneís Urban Drinkery, Vancouver
Dark amber to brown color, clean, with persistent beige creamy head. The aroma is mild, and strangely itís fruity (peach and apricots), followed by the idea of caramel. It has a very light caramel flavor with some more peachy fruitiness; the bitterness is very low, and there is a very light dusty impression too.
Peculiar, drinkable, easy, not bad. But Altbier is a different thing; in any case, apart from the peachy character, there is not much else going on here.

Beautiful dark copper colour. Nice nose of chocolaty cocoa with groud coffee beans. I might not be accurately describing but that is what comes to mind. As with other descriptions i feel it a bit watery on the palate. Decent but not worth chasing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled (2 - 4oz samples) at VCBW 2012 at the Salt Building in Vancouver poured amberin color with a finger of white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is mild caramel and light hops. Light to medium bodied with mild carbonation. As far as amber ales go, this one is easy to drink and somewhat tasty, but there are better choices for this style as this one is just average.

(Small bottle from the brewery; they sell them individually if you want to try without buying a case) I never would have guessed this is an altbier. Not in a million years. I canít pick up the German malts or hops... I canít pick up much of anything really. Almost as boring as a macrobrew pale lager. But at least itís not metallic like one of those, itís just watery. Iím picking up some crystal malt... but it canít be, can it? In an alt? The one outstanding thing about this is its beautiful hue.

Amber, small beige head. Carmel nose. Vague carmel palate, with a hint of finishing hops. Easy drinking, but nothing stands out

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I wouldnít call this an alt either. Dark amber and clear. Caramel and amll toast present. Mouthfeel is thin and hop presence small to none. I didnít particularly enjoy it.
