355ml bottle from jsprime. pours hazed brown with red highlights. great lasting and lacing tan head. big rich malt nose. the flavour are a little lacking compared to the nose. spot on for an alt just a little to watery mid palate. would make a nice fall drinker.

Bottle. Mildly fruity and roasted aroma, OK combination. Hazy dark brown colour. Small stable light brown head. The flavour is roasted and tart. A bit too tart, perhaps. MeadMe (1661) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2010

S: Aromas of roasted malt, caramel, and mild coffee.
T: Nicely roasted with hints of caramel and brown sugar. Light bittering hops with notes of sweet toffee.
M: Medium in body, pretty smooth with good carbonation. chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2010
Cask (gravity dispense) at the Great British Beer Festival, August 2009. Quite dark brown in colour. Rather hoppy for an altbier. Some fruity / toffee malt. Reasonably tasty if a little light bodied.

i’m not really sure what an altbier is, but this one was pretty good. not really "dark" as described... this was light copper, clear and sparkling, a great looking beer. the flavors are more as described, a little fruity, a little bitter. the flavors aren’t very powerful, but they are pleasant and interesting.
i was almost scared off by the reviewer that said this tasted like "chlorine and bacon", but i didn’t taste any of that.
