6 pack of 12oz bottles picked up in North Conway, NH.
Whenever I travel I seek out a beer or two that I can not get here in Mass. I sipped on a couple of these by the fire, and it was a welcome break from drinking Guinness. The pour is dark brown with an off-white head. The flavor is cashews, brown sugar, and a spicy alcohol finish. The hops are present as it warms up a bit. I was expecting Double Bag or better, but this falls short with a thin body. The flavors are decent and it is very drinkable.
From tap. Pours clear and golden brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malty. Breadish. Breadish, slight fruity. Caramelish and breadish. Bitter and dark malty finish. mR_fr0g (12128) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2017
Bottle at home, thanks to Leighton for this one. A light hazed amber orange coloured pour with a fine off white head. Aroma is big plastic hockey puck, nutty malts, apple,. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation, rounded. Flavour is composed of semi sweet nutty malts, little dried fruit, raisin, little age and wood in the finish.

Bottle shared in London - sourced from somewhere in the northeast. Pours clear reddish brown with a creamy, white head. The nose has some leafy hops, lightly toasted grains. Light sweet flavour with more lightly toasted grains, just a faint suggestion of tang, some dried berries, low bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. OK finish, more of the same, some leaves and dry, lightly toasted grainy bread, vague citrus notes. So so overall. dfinney23 (3323) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Deep, clear amber with a finger of creamy tan head. Malty, as expected, with a distinctly bitter finish. Quick3Beers (1236) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2016

Bottle from Hannaford Raymond NH. Aroma is yeasty dough with a little bit of leather. Appearance is a pretty reddish amber with mild haze (from live yeast), nice sparkle and two-finger off-white creamy foam head. Taste is mostly mild malty sweetness over mild bitter with a bit of yeast still present that gives a little unfinished quality to it. Palate is light to medium bodied with thin texture, lively carbonation with a little sting to the tip of the tongue and very mild bitter finish. Overall, this beer is true to its style but doesn’t do so as boldly and richly as the description would suggest. Pretty average.

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. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 24, 2014
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. DuffMan (10436) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
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.
