This is kind of a non-descript, but easy to drink and sessionable Alt, nonetheless. Grainy and somewhat chewy malt background, spicy hops in the background, but has some sweet fruitiness throughout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a small one-inch bubbly head that dissipates very quickly leaving a little bit of lacing.
The aroma is dominated by toasted grains and some lightly toasted caramel malts. There is actually a little bit of light fruit in the nose, maybe pears.
The taste has a hint of hops up front, slightly grassy, before giving way to the toasted grains and some caramel malts. Interestingly, it tastes a little bit like unsweetened tea when I think about it. That’s not necessarily a bad thing.
The mouthfeel is extremely crisp and clean and fairly light bodied with good carbonation.
I don’t have a lot of experience with this style, but this is extremely drinkable and a great balance of malts and hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear and orange/gold. Aroma is malty and grainy. Flavor is straight-forward with grainy malts, some cereal breadiness, and light esters. The finish is somewhat dry, balanced, and clean. Mouthfeel is moderately/briskly carbonated with medium body. Overall, a drinkable brew, but a little bit plain.
