ContemplateBeer (2019) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Danish pint from a 500 ml bottle; from Keg Liquors. Aroma: Slightly spicy fruitcake left a little past finished in a toaster oven; a healthy dose of herbal/noble type hops besides. Appearance: Murky garnet brown with with soft carbonation holding up a bubbly tan head. Flavor: Less fruity, but more toasty/spiced bready initially; a good amount of herbal hop bitterness towards the finish. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Not had enough in this style to know if this is indeed true (or how true) to Altbier, but I liked it well enough. Felt it was a bit thin in the mouth.

mcberko (14999) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2016
On tap at No Anchor, pours a deep dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma is pretty fungal and BO-like, with toasted bready malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted bread and fungal notes. Bizarre BO-like notes on the finish. Unconvincing.

ciocanelu (1594) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 17, 2016
Quite hazy, deep mahogany color with beige head. Aroma has toasted malt, brown sugar and some dried raisins. Taste starts with toasted malt and dark bread crust and finishes quite bitter and earthy with a slight roasted character. Body is on the lighter side, carbonation is medium. Easy drinking, quite dry and bitter, not bad.

rondphoto (4170) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 25, 2016
bottle @ Keg Liquor / Clarksville IN --- Aroma of caramel malt. Hazy brown color, smooth beige head that drops to a full cover, big lace splotches. Taste is lightly toasted malt that moves through medium fizz to light hops and a chalky finish that diminishes an otherwise nice light beer. Too bad the taste doesnt match the aroma. Only average.
