Bottle. Had a whole six pack of this, so i really did have a enough to decide whether i liked it or not. I thought it was good. A nice malt character, which was probably a little sweeter and richer than your typical altbier, there, is perhaps a slightly higher hop profile as well, but then again, it is quite balanced. Some very soft bitterness in the finish. Pleasant, i could, and did, drink a few of these.

Not really an alt, but not bad by any stretch either. Medium brown in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and bready malt.Dry and thin finish with a moderately high level of bitterness in the start that fades to subltely sweet.

coldbrewky (1721) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - APR 9, 2007
Crisp gentle hop nose with hints of pollen. Pours a clear medium brown that is bright in the glass. A woody bitterness that clears the palate swiftly. A thinner body could be worked on. My cats seem to like it.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2007
[bottle] Nice nutty aroma, some light sweetness. Brown, slightly hazy appearance. Flavors are nutty malts, barely sweet and quite drinkable, but not really outstanding in any way. Thin bodied, with pretty strong carbonation.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - NOV 10, 2006
(Bottle from <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/new-hampshire/g target=blank>Glen Beverage) OK but kind of dull...Pours clear brown with a very big foamy light tan head. Smells lightly of caramel and milk chocolate. Mouthfeel a bit thin and dry, lightly fizzy. Nice lacing. Flavor is weakly chocolatey, something else in there as well that seems a bit off. Perhaps a hint of sour.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 31, 2006
bottle, dark brown in color, medium carbonation. Aroma is malty and slightly hoppy. Taste is rich caramel malt with some light hoppy bitterness and dry malts, perhaps munich? decent session beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7069) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 This beer came to me in my beer club - I have never heard of the brewer before. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with a large tan head. The aroma is somewhat faint but has elements of roasted malts, molasses and fruity hops. The flavor is quite bitter with floral hops and only a hint of roasty malts. What malts there are combine with a molasses element and finishes long on the tongue.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Another beer from of the beer of the month club. 12 oz. Bottle. Pours a murky light red with a creamy white head and lacing. Nice malt nose with a bit of earthiness. Balance malt flavor with a nice hop bite in the finish. Slightly watery body but still a nice beer.

muzzlehatch (4877) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Vermont Brewers Fest 2006, draught sample. Light fairly clear amber-brown with a touch of head.....the aroma is pleasantly nutty, a hint of honey, some woody-vanilla hints, but a bit of dark oiliness as it warms doesnt help....the body is husky, dry and of little character, nutty hints are barely evident and theres just not a lot of malt, and no hops to speak of....just no "there" there if you know what I mean; I have trouble describing anything else so Ill just leave it at: dull.
