UPDATED: DEC 9, 2011 Picked up a sixer of this today and had one after shoveling the driveway.
Pours a solid brown that shows some ruby highlights when held up to the light. Two finger off white head that dissipates quickly and leaves minimal lacing on the way down the glass. Smell is a bit roasty, chocolatey and some caramel thrown in there too. Taste follows the smell, but adds a hop bite in the finish. Medium thick creamy smooth mouthfeel with adequate carbonation. I am pleasantly surprised this is a great little session brew from an up and coming local company. thetomG (250) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Nice dark brown, mostly clear pour. Thick layer of foamy head. Smell is pretty mild - a bit of toasty barley. Flavor follows but with a bit more going on - still mild though.
Nice light mouthfeel & good carbonation - easy to drink, but there’s a very slight metallic tinge to it that is slightly off-putting.
Glad I tried this but not something I’ll be seeking out again.

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 (1694) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAY 12, 2010

T: Nicely roasted with hints of caramel and brown sugar. Light bittering hops with notes of sweet toffee.

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. anders37 (27621) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2009
