Served on tap at Blue Mountain Brewery in Afton, VA.
A: Pours a crystal clear dark copper in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation and just a hint of garnet red highlights. The beer has a half finger tall light beige head that slowly fades to a large patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of light fruit malty sweetness (apple and pear) with some floral and herbal hops.
T: Moderate flavors of toasted malts which give it a slightly nutty flavor that combines with the light fruit malt sweetness (apple mostly but a touch of pear as well). There are light amounts of floral and herbal hops that contribute a light bitterness which fades quickly.
M: Just shy of medium bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Now I need to state upfront that I have been to Dusseldorf and visited and tried all of the altbiers available there which probably has made me a touch overly critical of the style. I think there was an excellent balance to this beer with the upfront sweetness and light bitterness in the finish. Definitely an enjoyable beer.
