So-so Driftwood bottle. Perhaps too mellow for me. Cloudy amber colour with lots of white lace. Carbonation right there. Sourish and citrus. OK mouthfeel, passable drinkability. presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle. Golden amber with moderate foam. Quiet nose. A nice amber. Good body. Malty, grainy, lots of cereal and bread flavour with a light balancing hop note. yogibeerra (30) - KAMLOOPS, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2011
a nice bitter malt flavour, with sufficient hops...very refreshing with a surprisingly mellow finish...Pilsner drinkers may like this one if they’re looking for something a little more full-bodied. DeanF (2647) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2011
Has a decent amber-gold body with a good layer of head on top. Okay sharp hoppy aroma like the Belgians do. Flavour is a bitter malt with plenty of hops and a dry finish; no sweetness at all, which I find a little odd but not entirely bad. Not too complex, however; and I’d prefer just a touch of sweetness to keep the tastebuds fully satisfied. JoeMcPhee (10131) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2011
Deep amber pour with a tight white head. Very toasty, slightly sweet aroma with a bit of toffeeish character. A little bit of sweetness on the finish. Yeast has a bit of light fruitiness. Lightly sweet with a kiss of lingering sugary character. Warming bring up more fruit - okay.

Golden-amber with a thin head. Somewhat flowery with earthy, caramelly character. Smooth malty character, light caramel and toast with some floral notes. Not altbier at all, no matter what they say. mcberko (19837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2010
Pours an amber-orange. Aroma of floral notes, caramel malt and pine. Taste is floral and sweet malt. Quite nice. DuffMan (10762) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2010
Big bottle, thanks to Parksy! Pours an amber orange, slightly hazy, with a golden cap that leaves some early lacing. Initially the aroma is a little beguiling: some strawberry fruit with floral accents and some resinous notes. As it breathes a little, it evolves into perfumey citrus and sweet toffee. Lighter on the palate, with flavours of toasty malt and nice aromatic hops (orange blossom, tangerine) with a moderately bitter finish. A terrific session ale. turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle. Tan & clear with big creamy head that subsides to 1/2 a finger. Aroma is of faint hops. Taste is very clean and well-balanced. Hops taste is very subtle and delicate. Malt has a hint of sweetness. This beer tastes a lot lighter than it looks. Not especially bubbly. So easy to drink, it is a natural session ale. jonas (8280) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2010
Bottle. Fruity malt aroma. Dark cloudy amber, lacing head. Light dry roast, fruity base, a hint citric hops. Medium to light body, mellow mouthfeel Lacks a little bit oomph to be a alt, most German ones I had had a herbal or heatherlike quality to them and a bit more body. but not bad at all.
