3.7/5  rDev +15.3%

Dark amber in color with apparent clarity; generous lace

No off aromas but very mild; I have no idea what to expect in the taste.

This is a well balanced beer. There is subtle chocolate malt and a very interesting smokiness to the brew. Overall, this is a dry beer. The aftertaste is where the hops show up. Good body.

With a little more aroma, this would be a superior offering.

Had on draft at the Great Lost Bear.

Clean amber transparent with a good head that laces well
A hint of malt upfront with a fruity back lite nice 3.5 to 4
The taste matches the aroma a slight tart but mostly sweet malt with a roasted malt finish.

The beer is clearn and fresh and pretty easy to drink.

Off the tap in Bethel this Altbier was a copper color with a great tan head of delicate bubbles that retained itself as a collar and left scattered lacing. The aroma was almost non-existent; pale, dry malt was all I could get. The flavors were odd, nutty at first it then went towards caramel malt before it became very full of minerals and wood. The finish was bitter in a biting way. The body was medium, the mouthfeel rough and the carbonation too high and subsequently foamy. Misbalanced and off-target for the style.
