3.53/5  rDev -0.8%

A: The pour is amber in color with a thin layer of off-white/khaki colored foam.

S: A fair amount of sweetness with a hint of fruits at moments. Mostly malty, however, with notes of toffee, caramel, and a mild roast.

T: The maltiness is front and center, giving off some light caramel sweetness, toffee, toasted malt, and a kiss of dark chocolate. Not all that complex or interesting.

M: The body is light-to-medium with a moderate carbonation to it.

D: Perhaps I'm just not a fan of Alts, but this was not particularly interesting to me. Sort of bland all around, but I suppose it works for some.

On Tap

Eureka! Burger
Redlands, CA

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
1/24/11

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.
