Nice amber color and lacing in the tall pilsener glass. Mild flavors with a touch of the sweet and sour that I associate with Altbiers. Very light body and the general impression is a lager gone bad. Murky flavors, a touch of roasted malt. Sprightly mouthfeel but just a dirty aftertaste with some hop bitterness. Slight beer smell. I think this one is just not worth bothering with, it seems to detract from the style. There are so many other pleasant beers with a touch of malt, like all the LTD lagers from Full Sail.

Clear and dark amber, bordering on brown. Thin off-white head. Some lacing down the glass.
Sweet, bready aroma. Little to no hop presence. There's a touch of toffee which is very nice.
Simple altbier. Caramel notes and a touch of toffee sweetness, but relatively simple and one-note, though tasty.
Medium to light bodied. Easy to drink. Pairs well with food.
A simple, malty altbier. Some caramel and toffee sweetness, but not a huge amount of character. Good with a delicious burger.

Extra from Cavery
Pours a nice rich mahogany with a thin off white head that recedes into a thin layer on the beer. The aroma is really nice. Lots of toasty, bready notes balanced with some caramel sweetness. I get some apple/pear fruitiness on the nose but again none of it is overpowering. Taste is more of the same with a good amount of hop bitterness to balance the roast and the sweet. Mouthfeel was fine, didn't detract from the beer but felt appropriate. Overall this is a really nice, well balanced beer. It has depth but is not overly complex. The flavors are sticking in my mouth and leaving me with a really nice aftertaste, this beer just keeps on giving. I will definitely seek this one out again.

On tap at Hangar 24 in Redlands
A - Dark coppery brown caramel/watery coffee in appearance - not much head off the tap
S - Sweet, roasted malts, coffee and chocolate
T - Slight sweet start goes quickly to a bitter coffee with roasty malt and lingers with sweet finish and lingering roast flavor.
M - Light, low carbonation and sticky coating to the throat with a light alcohol warmth present
D -Thought this was a nice malty session style beer being at 6.0% just a little over the "5% official session". It's not too sweet and has a nice light bitter balance with the roast.
I actually ordered this after trying it here - having it at the Underground in Redlands on tap and my craft beer friends enjoyed the tastes they had off my pint.
