Not bad, but not a favorite from driftwood. Has some interesting notes of malts and hops, mostly some dark nutty caramel flavours. pintbypint (3584) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
650ml brown bottle. Deep golden colour, lightly hazy. Fat white cap. Nose has caramel, grains/bread. Taste has caramel and bread with grass. Finishes grassy with light bitterness and dryness. Good. patricks110 (2486) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
Really enjoyable. Pours a dark amber with a thick, soapy beige head. Toffee and nuts with a rich nutty flavour profile. Aroma is rather mild with tons of caramel and a light fruity note. Nutty and toffee notes are heavy but give a nice smoothness to this brew. Well balanced, a bit sweet and malty but an easy drinking brew. dfearnley (2070) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2015

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2015 Prima biertje met een hoppige nasmaak maar zeer goed te doen. Wat donkere karakter met lekkere aroma.

2013-05-04 - bottle via my niece, enjoyed in Port Colborne with my family to toast my father’s memory - we had just held his memorial service earlier in the afternoon. It was a lovely day. Alt bier. Hazy and bubbly cloudy burnt copper with an average tan creamy/foamy head. Grainy for sure, a little light fruit, some light acidity (hops?), some alcohol presence - a little phenolic, and weirdly I got maple sweetness. After the sweet and grainy aroma, I was astounded at how pervasively and aggressively bitter the taste was surprisingly bitter; bone dry, no sweetness at all (go thirsty drinking it!), taste reminds me of drought grass - the bitterness of despair, almost scorched by the sun .. not much alcohol, mostly just bitter, some strong alphas from the hop varieties. Solid, chewy mouthfeel, long, long grassy finish and an odd peppercorn heat in the aftertaste. Really interesting beer, glad I had someone to share the bomber with me! Thanks, Jen, for lugging this from BC. fiulijn (20427) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Draught at Tap & Barrel, Coal Harbour, Vancouverandrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Hazy amber color; huge head, difficult to pour. Light malt aroma with very light esters. Smooth mouthfeel; malt and caramel flavor, dry and sandy/dusty; average bitterness.
More Amber Ale than Altbier.
Pours a fairly clear copper with a fair white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is Munich malt, floral, caramel and brown sugar. Taste is caramel, biscuits, earthy, grassy, and a medium bitterness. HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
650ml bottle. Looks great, lively caramel brown, lots of head and lacing. Bready nose with some earth. Taste is lots of earthy hops over some light caramel malt. Not entirely balanced. Body is thinner than I was expecting. Overall, this was not the alt I was looking for, more like an IPVienna, (which I am not suggesting). rejtable (2624) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2013
Real beauty! Pours light amber with lots of foamy head, good lacing depth. Nose is a bit quiet, some earthy notes. Flavours showing cereal, light brown bread, light dark fruit, some lightish grassy bitterness. Medium body with lively carbonation with a somewhat dry finish. Taste is light sweet low bitterness. Nice.
