Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Since Mexas Ranger didn't exactly light my world on fire, it's up to this stuff to salvage the latest BotM shipment. It pours a clear garnet topped by a finger of relatively short-lived dirty cream-white foam. The nose comprises candied orange peel, mildly-buttery caramel, a spit of booze, and a touch of toast. The taste brings in more of the same, along with a small contingent of dark, tobacco-like greens. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a solid sticke alt, nothing really all that special, but an enjoyable, malty little brew.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy brownish amber in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some deeper red highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Upfront there are light amounts of toasted malts with a hint of sweetness. Light to moderate amounts of herbal hops towards the finish.

T: Upfront there is a light flavor of toasted caramel and grainy malts with a very light hint of sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of herbal and floral hops that contribute a light amount of lingering bitternes.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with slightly heavier than moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Interesting in that this beer is slightly more hoppy than I have come to expect for the altbier style (especially having spent a couple of weeks in Dusseldorf). The flavors are a little more bitter and more complex than others in the style.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is hazy amber brown in color. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down a bit, leaving a thi head covering the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass, and some lacing on one side.
S: Light aromas of toasted malts and herbal hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors toasted malts and herbal hops with a light amount of bitterness. Hints of raisins are also noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is rather bitter for the style but is interesting nonetheless and quite complex to other altbiers.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 375ml. bottle, bottled 06/2012.

Appearance: A hazy copper body with a thick bubbly head that really clings to the glass ans has a gorgeous cascading effect as it's poured.

Smell: Resiny hops a bit with a nutty overtone and some herbs.

Taste: Mix of nuts, caramel, dry leaves and a light earthy bitterness. Raw hops that is not overdone and a tingle of spiciness on the tongue after the sip. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Starts out gentle then segues into a low-lying bitterness.

Overall: Really enjoyed this one. Worth your time for sure.
