growler fresh from the brewery poured into a tasting glass. pours a rich brownish amber with three fingers of loose eggshell colored head. good retention and rocky lacings.
aroma is of caramel malts and grain with a light note of candied sugar in the background, along with a light note of dark malts that stays in the background.
taste is more of the same with a malt, caramel, and light crain profile. nicely proportioned on the palate with a fresh profile and a very flavorful composition.
mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a fresh and flavorful profile and a finish of residual grain. nice on the palate.
drinkability is good. for an alt, this is a solid example, on the level of well done German examples. full of caramelly and malty notes with a solid profile. cheers!
Serving type: growler

A: Pours a crystal clear amber in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation that rises slowly from the bottom of the glass and some golden yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy off-white head that reduces to a mottled thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a couple of small much thicker spots and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of slightly sweet bready malts with a light to moderate amount of spicy hops.
T: Upfront there is a moderate amount of slightly sweet bready malts with notes of caramel sweetness. There is a light to moderate amount of spicy hops and a light amount of earthy yeast flavors. Hints of bitterness in the finish which fades pretty quickly.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light hints of dryness in the finish.
O: Easy to drink and enjoyable - a nice American representation of the style (which I have fond memories of when I visited Düsseldorf). Definitely one to grab again.

A-Pours a dark copper color. Body seems to be clear and the head is a well-sized, tan collection of fizzy bubbles.
S-A rich, yet reserved Altbier. Bready, slightly musty, sweet caramel. Light Euro hops. All well proportioned.
T-Very well done and very tasty. It's just constructed beautifully. It tastes like dark bread and bread crusts and a fruity Lager yeast and notes of caramel. Light, spicy hops.
M-Light bodied. Very drinkable. A bit creamy.
O-Best Copper Ale I have had. It's such a bland style. This one was very memorable and I'm happy I got to try it several times at ACBF.
Serving type: on-tap
