On tap at the Blind Tiger’s Victory event. Pours a clean clear light brown with a medium sized white head. Crisp malt, lightly sweet. Earthy malt with a touch of bitterness through it. Long bitter grapefruit and toast on the finish.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Copper in color with a thick white head. Slightly bitter and hoppy aroma with some malts underneath. Very dry and bitter at the start of the flavor with a smooth and slightly corny malt middle. Very dry and bitter on the aftertaste.

kramer (4905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2010
On tap, at brewery. Clear amber body with a small fizzt off-white head that fell to a wispy film. Nicely fruity and toasty malts with some minimal hops and a touvh of crystal malt. The flavor is fairly dry with some perfumy hops and toasty malts. Some graininess as well. Light to medium bodied, a little coarse in texture with fizzy carbonation. Not bad, but not among the best.

Pours a dark amber with aroma and taste of malt and hops. Smooth, slightly dry finish, closest thing I have had to the style over in the states. Frequently see Ron and Bill drinking it.

nimbleprop (4847) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2010
Sampled on tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours a totally clear, copper, orange amber with one ring of white head. Smells like malts, like dried barley grains, crackers bread. It honestly smells like my homebrewing mashtun. Flavor is sweet, crisp, malty, lightly bready, non descriptive citrus fruits. Finish is a little watery.

jeff789 (1407) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2010
clear amber with decent head... sweeter than expected aroma, malty, minimal hoppiness... kind of a bland malt first flavor, somewhat sweet, with a thin watery finish... medium light body...

20100306 tap at brewpub. According to the bartender, this is new, not a rebadge. Menu says 5.1 abv, so this may warrant a new entry by someone in the know. Light bronze color with sturdy tan head. Aroma was soapy hops, white yeasty bread. Body was light, too light, with huge, aggressive eff that was more distracting than anything. Light bready and pepper notes to finish. Lingering hop floral notes. Again I’m thinking that many of these beers are tasting the same.

Not a bad altbier, pretty average really, copper color, decent off-white head, malty nose with a slight tone of hops, very balanced body with a good combination of malt & hops, body was a bit too light though, overall a very drinkable & smooth session beer

I found this alt to be a bit weak all around. The color was a bit too light, the head was a bit too flat and the flavor lacked the bite I associate with alt. Having said that, it was still a very pleasant beer.
