on tap-pours a rich tan head with trailing lace and copper color. Aroma is medium malt-some caramel. Taste is medium malt-peat, spice, bittering hops bite. Agree with some other comments, cookie dough, metallic.

pours amber, thin off-white head.
Aroma, roasted malts, thin fruits, yeasty, thin roasted malt scent.
Flavors, light and thin body, malty and roasted, hint of yeast and mild bittering hops. A little too thin.

nimbleprop (8815) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 10, 2010
22oz bottle at the DC local tasting. Pours a clear, copper amber with a creamy, slightly off white head. Aroma is a little spicy, malty but mild, sweet. Flavor is sweet, caramel, cookie dough, malty, light oranges. One person remarked that the finish was tannic like iced tea. Sessionable. I like a good alt, very underrated style.

AirForceHops (7908) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Draft @ the brewpub. Brown color into the pint. Small white colored head. Some spots of lace. Nose of light roast, nuts, and caramel. Hints of pure grain and a dash of hops. You can pick out the German hops, very Eastern European. Medium body with light bitterness in the finish. I liked this brew. It’s a nice example of the style.

3.5
chriso (7536) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2009
Cask (handpump) at NERAX North, Haverhill MA, 7 November 2009. Nice dark copper colour, good condition. Strong caramel and toasty malt character. Quite full mouthfeel. Decent.

thornecb (6093) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 29, 2009
Pours mahogany into a shaker. Tan head recedes to hug rim. Slightly flat upfront with dark caramel and an abrupt bitter hop finish. Sessionable.

very subtle old style alt beer. Close to the german style beer but missing the charm
