Dried leaves nose. Tea colored, headless. Dried leaves, pecan, clay, grass. Medium body, easy carbonation. Braudog (6898) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Draft at the brewpub. I was pleasantly surprised to first see this even an option as many American breweries demur from traditional continental styles these days. And then this is actually a pretty decent representation of the altbiers I grew up on in Germany. Solid amber, good authentic malty swirl and evenly balanced. Solid.

Draft sample at the source. The beer is a clear amber color with a beige head of foam. The aroma has caramel and a bit of tin and shampoo character. The taste has some nice sweetness, but the chemical nuances are distracting. Medium body and lower carbonation. DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2015
