Apearance - Pours a a clear mohagany with a one finger off white head that doesn't stay around too long, but does leave some lacing.
Nose- Chocolate, caramel, toffee, malt dominated. Aromas blend well.
Palate- Just a touch or roastiness is evident among the light caramel, toffee and nuttiness.
Mouthfeel- Light body, slightly below medium carbonation.
Drinkability- I would not mind having a few of these in succesion.
Overall- This beer makes me want to visit this style more often.

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.

Pours a dark amber color with a tight, off-white head that leaves little bits of lacing.
Smells of toasted malts with a bit of dark fruits.
Tastes of the toasted malts, dark fruits, and a bit of earthy hops. Toasted malts lead off with notes of toffee, chocolate, toasted bread, and a bit of caramel. A bit of nuttiness comes through before some figs and raisins. Toasted notes give way to some earthy and grassy hops. Fairly sweet overall. Finishes with a bit of toasted malt.
Mouthfeel is medium-light with a smooth amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is pretty tasty with a nice combination of fruits and malts. Would like a bit less sweetness.

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.
