On tap. Pours a mostly clear darker shade of orange, with a big, dense foamy cream-colored head, leaves good lace. Nose has some good earthy hops, chocolate malts, rich dark fruit characteristics. Light body. Smooth, light carbonation. Clean finish. Description is spot-on, it is impressing how easy to drink and refreshing this is, yet it still has a great flavor. Altbier has been a confusing style for me so far, because most of the ones I’ve tried have been imperial versions, and each one tastes drastically different. This, I think, is an example of the style that makes sense, finally. Good chocolate, nutty flavors, light earth, little herbal. Light bitter / sweet taste. Good stuff, a really unique experience.

EithCubes (5633) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Growler from JC’s in WD. Darkish amber body with a rocky, lacing beige head. Nose is hoppy with light caramel, taste quite bitter and a little rubbery on the yeast side, thinnish caramel malt in the light body, a little toffee/cracker and big, big earth but no real sign of alcohol. A winner in spite of its slights.

Beerman6686 (6379) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2012
This poured a semi murky lighter brown color with an off white head. Aroma was caramel, grass, some toasted malt, and some biscut notes. Flavor was suprisingly bitter for most altbiers, but completely balanced with the doughy biscuty malt. Pleasant experience and a great example for the style.

Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of herbal hops and toasted mildly toffee malts. The taste is toasted toffee malts, the faintest hint of raisin, herbal and minty hops. Slight lingering bitterness, medium bodied, refreshing,

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2012
bit darker than festbier, more copper less orange, similar head of puffy cream islands atop small bubbled wisps. Muted nose is earthy, plum and clay with considerable grass. Flavor sweeter, some chocolate at front light hay as field bitterness through the finish, where strong bitterness couples with dry finish to accent mild-like malts, doughy but dark and rich.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Tap at Victory. Pour is clear tea amber. Off white head. Webby complete lacing. Nose is dense malty, spicy earth, small maple. Taste is sharp hoppiness, dense malt, maple, spice. Palate is perfect malt and hop balance. Rich, quenching, dense, loads of wheat bread crust and whole grain flour. Very delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
