Pretty good Alt here. Really heavy german maltyness and a light noble hop finish. Crisp and clean but forgettable.

3.6
dogfish120love (1331) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Pours an orangish red/ amber in coloration, with hints of black and brown, it is very aesthetically pleasing. Very malty, sweet, somewhat hoppy, grainy, definitely has notes of caramel. A very solid brew and my first alt.

3.2
kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Draft @ Cambridge House. Pours a slightly hazy, dulled orange-amber color; creamy, fluffy light-tan head with good retention and creamy lacing; great pour. Slightly bland aroma, showing straightforward dried fruits and caramel; underdeveloped. Mouthfeel follows suit. Lively carbonation; basic caramel, dried fruits, and tea-like malts; light astringency; again, kind of bland, a touch watery, and would benefit from some balanced acidity / zesty bitterness; a bit lifeless. Medium finish: toasty malts, mineral bitterness, and dry tea. The two German-style beers I tried today were definitely my least favorite of the CH beers I’ve tried; loved everything else.

3.9
Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 3, 2006
Pours a reddish color. Smells nutty with some peppery splashes and yogurt. Tastes malty with some earthy hops. Great session brew.
