Good beer for a standby when the selection is limited. Very tasty

What a flavorful beer that will knock you out. You can drink several of this one without getting too intoxicated and it keeps its flavor profile as well. Nice mouthfeel, robust, and just an overall enjoyable beer. The label calls this one an amber lager ale. So its more of an ale with a lager style. I like this. Its an Altbier, I have had only a few of this style from my knowledge, but this is a beer that would seek out in the future.

Nice head retention. Beautiful copper/brown color.

Malty, yet, enough hops to make it interesting. I think this might be my new go to beer. It is a beer that will not kill you on the booze but still maintains enough balance. Perfection. I just wish I could find it more readily available.

Poured on tap in a shaker, the beer is a deep, vibrant copper coloring. Aromas of subtle caramel and roasted notes. Very balanced and light. Flavors are extremely balanced and smooth, with caramel and nut highlights blending perfectly. Smooth, light body, with a caramel sweet linger in the aftertaste. Finish is light and crisp. Insanely balanced and immensely drinkable.

Served from the bottle into a nonic glass.

A- Poured a very dark reddish brown color with tons of visible carbonation and off-white soapy head that left no lace.

S- Lots of nutty, bready, and grape must notes.

T- Big grape must and fruity notes, nutty, caramel malt, and grainy notes.

M- Prickly carbonation, dry, medium body, and smooth.

O- This is definitely one of the best altbiers I have ever had. It is full of such bright fruity notes and a nice malt backbone with super high drinkability.
