Pours a clear copper color with a light white head. Aroma of dark malt. Taste is balanced leaning toward malty but not overly. German ale yeast lends a bready quality.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 12 oz bottle from Grant Bar in Millvale, PA. Pours with a nice head and caramel aromas. Has a nice crisp and creamy taste. A slight hoppiness is found on the nose. A nice addition to the Straub family. nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2013
My brother-in-law had one in hidden in his fridge. I just assumed it was the Straub light that they put out every year. But, this one was tweaked. Poured a dark red color with a brownish i inch head. Aroma was of toasted malts, some dark fruit. Flavor was light sweetness (maybe fruit flavors), light hoppy taste. Medium body. I liked the altbier.

From bottle. Thin adjunct-corn tang with dusty grain nose - pretty similar to an authentic Düsseldorf altbier aroma if I recall. Coppery amber clear with thin off-white foamy head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts medium sweet with dusty grain, medium caramel sweetness, light sugar tang and a noble-style hoppy character. Reminds me a lot of Diebels Alt. Clean after. I enjoy a good altbier. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2013
This poured a darker red color with a beige head. Aroma was of toasted malts, light chocolate, some dark fruit, and yeast. Flavor was fruity, light hop bitterness with light sweetness and toast notes. Nice altbier

Courtesy Nate. Pours clear brown with red and blonde hues. Caramel notes, brown sugar in the nose. Classic altbier, caramel with mild roast, nice classic hop flavor. bth122 (1718) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle. Thanks b-law. Nice looking clear copper color. Aroma is caramel, cookie, toffee bread. Medium light sweetness. Taste is same as aroma. Easy drinking. Good flavor. Well done.

Deep amber color with a thin beige head. Sweet malty nose. Caramel sweet with some toast, apple fruitiness, and a strong hop pellet bitterness. Okay alt. bierkitty (183) - Elysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Just stumbled across this on Groundhog Day. Clear deep amber with a medium head that quickly faded to fine lacing. The hop aroma, probably Saaz, lingered nicely. A bit of toffee flavor balanced the hops and finished dry and bitter. Not a bad groundhog nog.
