Been meaning to review this one for a while. It is my go-to sessionable beer almost all year round. Consumed on tap, poured into the traditional vertical OMB pint glass.
A - Beer pours a deep copper color with a strong, authentic head for the style. Filtration is solid and the beer shows no signs of sediment. Lacing is appropriately present as the beer is consumed.
S - Warm roasted malt aroma with hints of nuttiness and maybe even a bit of chocolate at the very end. Noble hops are present but not overpowering.
T/M- Clean and crisp upon first taste with a nice warm nutty aftertaste. The beer is clean and the body is spot on for a traditional German alt.
As someone who enjoys a variety of beers year round with my tastes being very seasonal, I don't usually have one beer that I can really enjoy all the time. This is absolutely the exception to the rule. What an outstandingly balanced and drinkable beer. Very proud to have these guys as one of our many local breweries. Great beer, great people.

Consumed December 25th, 2013 at some generic eatery in Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
Beer is copper colored (duh) and clear. The head was less than one head tall, off-white, and quickly settled down into what looked like a culture in a petri dish.
Smoke caramel aroma with some nuttiness.
Flavor is more of the same: strong, nutty flavor with nice caramel base. Smooth, flavorful and good to drink. Pretty remarkable bitterness on the finish, not in the amount but in the assertiveness.
Some carbonation tingle, slightly thicker and creamier than expected.
This beer is a pleasant surprise and I'd be happy to drink this one again.
