Bottle brought to dinner by my Uncle, thanks Jeff! Pours reddish brown with a creamy off white head. Aroma is caramel, nuts, mild citrus. Flavor is sweet caramel, some fruity esters, citrus, grassy bitter in the finish.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a stange. The appearance had a decent somewhat clear red color with a decent half finger white foamy head that gracefully dissipated into the beer. There was some light lacing sticking nicely to the glass. The smell had a decent roasted nuttiness blended into a light caramel maltiness. The taste was somewhat sweet with a semi-thick nutty breadiness. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about it. Overall, not a bad altbier, though this could have also gone as an American Amber/Red, no worries as I’d have it again if available.

Bottle. Crazy carbo results in a towering beige head on a slightly hazy copper body. Low aroma, principally grainy with light caramel. Grainy body as well, light fruity caramel, slightly reedy with a sharp hoppy bite. I much preferred the Altitude, which apparently is the original recipe for this beer? Should have stuck with Plan A.

Pours brown with an initial foamy head that lasts for a bit. Aromas are nutty, English breakfast tea, maybe grass, maybe some caramel. Tastes are mostly sweet, with some limited bitterness. Fairly light in the mouth with lots of carbonation

BrettTaylor (784) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Poured from bottle to glass. Poured a dark copper with an initially thick amber head with medium lacing. The head dissipated quickly to a very thin head. Aroma is caramel with subtle coffee and a bit floral. Tastes a bit of coffee, some hops, malty, and a bit of something green. Light mouthfeel, a bit of astringency on the finish. Long finish, but not particularly pleasant.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Typical doughy stink associated with alts, fruity notes too. Clear dark copper, two finger tan head. Dry, bready sweetness, reminds me of raspberries for some reason. Low carbonation, very smooth and downable. This brewer has been around for years and only make this and a couple other types. Pretty good stuff..cold weather session beer.
