Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of herbal hops and toasted mildly toffee malts.

On tap at the Blind Tiger’s Victory event. Pours a clean clear light brown with a medium sized white head. Crisp malt, lightly sweet. Earthy malt with a touch of bitterness through it. Long bitter grapefruit and toast on the finish. DocLock (10652) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2004
I like altbiers...I like Victory beers....and I like this beer. Pours dark straw/amber with aroma and taste of malt, hopcit, and a smooth, slightly dry finish. True to the German style, as with all Victory beers. These guys are among the few Americans who are invited INTO Germany to make beer! GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Tap at Victory. Pour is clear tea amber. Off white head. Webby complete lacing. Nose is dense malty, spicy earth, small maple. Taste is sharp hoppiness, dense malt, maple, spice. Palate is perfect malt and hop balance. Rich, quenching, dense, loads of wheat bread crust and whole grain flour. Very delicious.

On tap. Pours a mostly clear darker shade of orange, with a big, dense foamy cream-colored head, leaves good lace. Nose has some good earthy hops, chocolate malts, rich dark fruit characteristics. Light body. Smooth, light carbonation. Clean finish. Description is spot-on, it is impressing how easy to drink and refreshing this is, yet it still has a great flavor. Altbier has been a confusing style for me so far, because most of the ones I’ve tried have been imperial versions, and each one tastes drastically different. This, I think, is an example of the style that makes sense, finally. Good chocolate, nutty flavors, light earth, little herbal. Light bitter / sweet taste. Good stuff, a really unique experience. b3shine (8802) - Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent brownish-orange with off-white head. Smells and tastes of dough and malt. Average on the palate. Not my style.
