Thanks to Pjones6738 for this one. I am still not very familiar with Alts but this was pretty good. Nice dark amber with a thin light beige head and some effervescence. Malt and caramel in the nose. Lighter flavor than the deep dark color implies, consisting of malt and caramel (again) with a slight roasted finish. I would have enjoyed this a lot more if it were a little more rich.

hopdog (11984) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a deep mahogany color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel, and maybe some very light citrus. Tastes of caramel and kinda nutty. Thin body. Nothing really stood out either good or bad.

The Lure:
A vegetable engine runs this chalky, metallic aroma. Somethings amiss, this must be an old model.

The Festivities:
Sweet toasted malt imparts caramel and earthiness, but is clearly affected by stale barbarism. Yeastiness and dryness make obvious the lack of hoppiness.

Those good people who fall asleep in the sun.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Poured a deep brown with a creamy off-white head that receded rather quickly. Picked up caramel, and other sweet roasted malts. Light mouthfeel, and the flavor consisted of some sweet malts and a little woodiness. Medium smooth finish. I am partial to bigger and heavier brews, but this went down remarkably smoothly, and would make a solid session beer.

Very mellow maltiness with a soft roasted finish. Slight nutty flavor, but overall smooth and easy drinking.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2004
Bottle pours deep brown with caramel hues, nice frothy off-white head, with decent lacing.   Malty and bready on the nose.   Nutty, malty, and bready on the tongue.   Slightly toasted malt flavor through the middle.   Malty finish.   Not bad, but nothing fantastic.   Thanks goes out to captaincougar for the trade!

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2003
Black center with brown crown, no head or lace. Very earthy aroma, dirty and musty. Burnt malt, smokem and leather hints on nose. Taste is so different from aroma, hoppy and citrusy tones with a light sweet background. Acidic finish. Medium-bodied with a chewy and soft mouthfeel. Well, it's very unique, hard to define brew.

kramer (6488) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2005
12 oz bottle via trade w/ 1FastSTi. Pours a cloudy brown with minimal head. Mostly fruity nose, a little earthy, with maybe a hint of oxidation. Flavor is mostly fruity as well. Malt plays the stronger role but fairly well balanced. Some oxidation comes thru in the finish. Mouthfeel is pretty thin with moderate amount of carbonation. Pretty bland overall, rather muddled flavor profile, but in its defense this may not be the freshest of samples.
