Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: smithj4 on 04-18-2014

Deep copper in color, this German-Style Altbier is a remarkable beer with a crisp clean finish. Lands End Amber balances the rich character of specialty malts with the mild aroma and bitterness of three hop additions to create a memorable drinking experience.

A: The beer is clear orange amber in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high beige colored head that took a long time to die down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and thick lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to aromas of earthy yeast and floral hops are present in the nose along with notes of toasted malts.
T: The taste has initial flavors of toasted malts and finishes and transitions to a light to moderate amount of hop bitterness, the latter of which lingers through the finish. Notes of earthy yeast are also perceptible.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and has a nice delicate balance between the malts and hops. It is a good representation of the style.

thanks to JC for sharing this, enjoyed chilled from the bottle in a 1/2 pint glass.

The color is lighter amber with honey-look and 2 fingers worth of white cap with fine bead. The smell has a light caramel element with toasted and light herbal hop scent with mild yeast aroma. The feel is moderately toasted in texture with medium carbonation and light spice element iwth gentle woody and sweet tinge with dry spiciness augmenting the finish.

The taste has a nice german malt flavor with some bready malt with caramel quality and herbal hop flavors in the middle with a nice woody accent and light grainy quality with a slight yeast flavor in the background. This is a pretty tasty alt, not exceptional but well brewed and worth trying I would drink this with barbecue

Bottled 10/14/14

Pours crystal clear, light gold with 1 1/2 finger head. A little pillowy. Looks like a lot of carb. Head retains really well.

Smell is some malt, pilsner like aroma. Grassy and straw like.

Taste is earthy, grassy and barley malt. Has the German character, low bitterness, medium malt. Something I haven't had in a while. Slight hop note. Touch of sweetness caramel like.

light body, above medium carb. Clean finish.

haven't had a beer of this type in a while but it grew on me after the initial taste. Nicely done.
