Poured at the brewery into a traditional Altbier glass. Crystal clear, dark brown. Nice lacing throughout the drink. Pleasant bitterness with a light malt sweetness. No hop aroma. Maybe a slight roast malt character if you really went looking for it. Very drinkable, I love it only being 4.8%ABV. Great job.

At the brewpub with a brewer. Unfiltered version, wine colour. Served a little cold but it was minus F outside. Rich malting, subtle carbonation, above average mouthfeel. Lacey. Rich malting in aroma.Caramel, yet not overally sweet as 53 IBU balances it out. Very good drinkability. Great alt.

nice munich style brew here, served in the traditional 1/4 liter glass for only $2.50. clear copper color ale with a small to very small white head. smells like german malts, on the lighter side of both flavor and body. some balancing bitter hops also, but in a supporting role only. flavor is light too, malt driven, and potentially amenable to a whole bunch of nice food. there is a way back there sweetness from the malts, and a very slow finish that is uncommon in a beer this light in feel. looks way darker than it feels, almost watery in feel. mellow carbonation, and lower in alcohol than some of these. sessionable, but not a beer to spend too much time on at dry dock. they do a ton of more interesting stuff, still, a nice take on the altbier.
