A-clear ruddy brown. Short tan lived head leaves no lacing. No visible carbonation

S-robust with roasted malt, caramel sweetness and dark bread

T-rich, caramel malt again with some bread and a nice hint of German hops on the finish

M-smooth. Full but not thick . Pleasant

O- a really good altbier

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.

Pours dark bronze with 1 finger of medium white head. Good retention and nice lace points.

Nose is sweet with bread malts. Raisin and fig combine with the bread malts for a nice aroma.

More raisin and fig in the flavor with thick chewy malt body. Hops take a back seat here, with only a suggestion of cascade coming in. Mild finish, with a flash of molasses sweetness very late.

Very thick for the style, but works well as a winter beer.

Overall a tasty representation of the style.
