5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle:   Coppery amber appearance, thin sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Toasty nose.   On the tongue its somewhat thin, simple, very pale breadiness and lightly toasted malts.   Comes across as somewhat simple.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes slightly meatly, a bit nutty, with a very light mealiness.   Pretty boring overall.   Not bad, but simple and light.   At least lighter than other Altbiers.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a one finger frothy off-white head that fell to a wispy film. The nose is pretty full of vienna maltiness with just a light touch of fruitiness and minimal hops. It actually smells a bit old and lightly oxidized, but there’s nothing in the little ’enjoy by’ space allotted to give me this info. The flavor isn’t really oxidized though, but it is a bit overly husky and grainy with a little light roast coffee and burnt caramel. The hops are pretty minimal here as well, with just a light bitterness towards the back end. Lighter bodied with a slightly clingy texture and fizzy carbonation. This one just didn’t do it for me. It’s really hard to find a good Altbier.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2013
Location: Draft at Ginger Man (NYC), 8/15/13

Aroma: It has a light malt nose, with some nuts, caramel, and a little bit of toast
Appearance: It has a clear reddish brown pour with a small beige head
Flavor: This one has a medium sweet flavor, toasty and malty, with a mild bitterness
Palate: It has a medium body, a pretty good drinkability, average carbonation, and a clean finish
Overall Impression: This wasn’t an absolutely amazing beer or anything, but it worked pretty well. I didn’t have too many complaints here.

JStax (6509) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a Belgian style tulip glass. Pours a translucent amber with a thick froth of beige foam. Aroma is sweet and carrot cake-y with a nice hop bitterness coming through. Taste is a touch sweet at first, but moves toward a nicely bitter finish. Its an interesting take on the style.

3.3
mansquito (6439) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Barcade, Brooklyn tap ($6): Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma caramel, toffee, and a tiny bit of hops and grains. Taste is slightly sweet with caramel and toffee being all up in there. Minimal bitterness. Mostly just a really smooth and easy drinking session ale.

3.1
obguthr (6369) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Toast and cereal grain aroma with cherry accents. Clear rust, thin head. Strong bread crust flavor again with cherry notes. Bitingly bitter grass is also present and doesn’t complement the fruity esters very well. Otherwise, this is a nice beer. Very nice malt bill in this one.

3.6
TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle. Dark copper with a short, foamy tan head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly spicy with caramel notes, grains, bread and grassy notes. Taste is caramel, spicy hops, grassy notes, earthy hops, sweet malt and bread. Body is medium with a strong, fizzy carbonation. Finishes with more caramel, grains, bread, sweet malt, soft fruit notes, earthy hops and grassy notes.

3.4
JK (6162) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Brown color. Rich, dry malt with bread and the hops are perceivable. Good flavor and true to style. Great alt.
