Thanks to rejean for this. Pours ruby brown with a frothy white foam. Aroma is caramel and earthy hops. Taste is rich caramel, earthy malt and a nice hop bitterness in the finish. Not exactly a Frankenheim but still very tasty. Very much "inspired by" rather than to style. Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2013
Pours a clear copper with a nice frothy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma of bready malts, caramel, sweet brown sugar and some floral hops. Taste is bready malts, biscuit, grass, earthy hops and a nice bitterness on the finish. Well balanced altbier that has a clean and crisp finish.

Draft. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex toasted balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate toasted complex flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of average duration. Good drinkable brew. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Well done altbier. Nice and wooden bitter at finish. Malty tang in aroma. Pours orange clear without much head or lacing. Average carbonation. Sampled at Garrick’s head. Ferris (15020) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle - Grains, some hops and sweet malt. Clear amber with a bubbly full off white head. Grains and some light brown sugar sweetness, a quick hit of bitterness and finishes on the grains again. Creamy taste but light on the tongue. My first Alt, but I will definitely seek out more.

Aroma: Very nice...caramel, butterscotch, citrus and spices. The citrusy hops shine through a toffee biscuit malt.
Taste: Mirrors the aroma with a hop punch.
Palate: Mouthfeel is medium-thin. CO2 Medium, balance leans toward bitter.
Overall: Quite OK, but this tastes like an IPA to me.
Couleur ambrée avec une petite mousse. Nez d’houblon et malt. Le goüt et de malt légèrement sucré avec une profile forte d’houblon dans la finale. Presque comme une IPA mais plus maltée. RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
Amber pour. Flavour is soft malts with a decent hop kick. Carbonation was a bit biting, but otherwise enjoyable. bcBelgianbrew (115) - , British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2013
A bit too sweet for my taste. Wonderfully delicate malt balanced with bitter hops. Fully diminishing head. Worth a try. Tried it with several other samples. Maybe needs to be enjoyed on its own rather than next to some others less sweet. cards04 (2784) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
Pours a nice amber. Nice dark fruit and bubblegum aromas. Nice sweet fruity flavours and a balanced bitter finish. Good.
