Bready malt aroma. German bread crust malt flavor, nicely balanced with medium caramel. Nutty aftertaste. Moderate bitterness. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Had this at the Trolley Square location. Received in a perfect pint look-alike.
4.5 A: Clear deep amber color. Came with one finger of creamy off-white head. Decent retention and a good sized ring of lacing.
3.5 S: Good amount of caramel and toffee. Toasty and grainy malts. Good, but could use a bit more power.
3.5 T: Big toastiness. Caramel and toffee to a lesser extent. Grainy. A bit more bitter than I prefer, but alright. Closer to an American brown ale than an alt, but whatever.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. More crisp than creamy.
3.5 D: Good beer with a nice, big toastiness.
Serving type: on-tap

On cask at the Trolley Square brewery - Pours a fairly hazy deep copper color with smallish off white head. Aroma is fairly nutty, with toasted malts and light caramel. Flavor is malty, also a bit nutty, with a kind of metallic-y caramel and a bit of leather. Finish is balanced. This is alright - nothing amazing. Sledutah (7724) - Utah, USA - JAN 25, 2010

Appearance: Dark copper with a small white head, no lacing
Aroma: Pine, spices
Taste: Sweet malts, pine
Crisp and clean beer.
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a light brown/copper color with a thick beige head. The aroma is mostly sweet malts. The flavor is full of lightly toasted malts and nice spicy hop addition, most noticeably in the finish. Very drinkable and easygoing.

GABF 2005: poured light brown with little head. Light carbonation. Light malt flavor and aroma. This is a decent, unoffensive alt that’s lightly flavored but underwhelming. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 29, 2005
GABF 2004 Copper in color with a small white head. Spicy hop aroma and flavor. Dry finish. PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 29, 2003
Light amber color, very clear. a small frothy head, no lacing. The aroma is slightyly malty. The flavor is bitter with a dark roasted malt middle and a thin hoppy finish. On the whole offensively bitter and watery. gwfrankpsu (231) - McKinleyville, California, USA - OCT 13, 2002
Alt is one of my favorite styles, this is a bit thin though I didn’t find it offensive. The beer is OK. GABF 2002 Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 10, 2002
On tap GABF ’02: Toffee aroma, watery palate, light orange color, acidic from start to finish. Didn’t like this one.
