A good semi dark amber. I got hints of chocolate with every drink. Absolutely a beer made to serve Ice Cold. Worth a try. sloth (2905) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Small tan head that dissipates quickly ending up looking like a glass of iced tea. Clear amber hued brew. Lightly grainy nose, malty. Medium body, dead. Buttery malt flavors, lightly sweet. Fairly dry malty finish. Was expecting a bit more from this one,hmmmm? Thanks to fordest for the trade! ewkka (9) - Wronin, POLAND - JUN 21, 2006 does not count
Usual appearance, good initial head and good lacing, amber colored (not as deep a copper as I like in an alt). Malts were mildly sweet and moderately rich jhwarfield (125) - USA - JUN 20, 2006

It was a very nice session brew to while away the hours of a long trip. I was not surprised by the newbees that liked it anaheim1983 (140) - Anaheim, California, USA - JUN 13, 2006
twelve ounce bottle pours red with white head, very very sweet for an alt beer I would think it needs to be a little dry but no. Nice use of hops and very drinkable at right temp Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2006

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2007 First time I had this beer, I wasn’t too keen on it and thought it was a basic amber ale. Second tasting (June ’06 rerate) was much better. Usual appearance, good initial head and good lacing, amber colored (not as deep a copper as I like in an alt). Malts were mildly sweet and moderately rich: nutty, bready, very light caramel. Hops were bittering, nicely done. Unfortunately, a little bit too much fruitiness sticking around in the aftertaste, leaving this a bit sloppy for the best of the alts, yet a good stateside example. Third tasting, 3/07, a little too malty, although the comments stand. Re-rate on draft, 11/07: A product that is continually slipping, too imbalanced to the sweet side to be a stellar altbier. Sweet, slight breadiness, caramel, in need of more toasty nutty notes and more balancing hops to be a better example of the style. Appearance within style was a bit weak too. No lager crispness anywhere in this product.
