Can at Euclid hall. Pours red colored with a one finger white to off white head. Aroma is floral with some nice fruits coming through. Flavor follows this closely with a crisp hop finish it seems, very floral notes, and some fruits galore going on here. Light bodied and goes down very easy. Not really in the Altbier traditional style, but a pretty decent beer bordering on the session ale side.

Where's the head?? Aggressive pour results in barely any head! Oh well. Color is a murky copper-orange, not exactly an entirely beautfiul looking beer, but you don't buy beer for it's looks. Smell is more malty and sweet; toasty grains, bread, some earthy qualities, a little metallic. Taste really amps up the toasy malts, very bready, very mildly sweet with an equalizing herbal hopiness. Quite an interesting taste, I like it quite a bit. The taste really come together pretty well, although it might be a bit strong for more than two or three in a sitting. Mouthfeel is a bit rough, surprisingly bigger bodied, too.

Totally decent beer from my former hometown of Loveland. One of the first craft breweries there; I've been wanting to try this beer for a while. Not bad, not bad.

On tap at Teller's tap room for only $4.25, not a bad happy hour price. Amber color, ample head. Aroma was sort of grainy malts and not much else. Flavor was more of the same and almost made me think of wet dog. I really didn't much care for this beer and would not order one again.

12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy ruby amber with a small off white head that quickly goes to a thin collar.

The aroma is toasted caramel malts with a little roast.

The flavor is sweet, toasted caramel malts and a little apple with some roast and a lot of bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, decent alt - toasted caramel and toffee malts with quite a bit of hop bitterness.

Have an inkling I got a bad bottle. Absolutely no foam on the pour, couldn't get a decent aroma for the life of me. Still mildly effervescent on the tongue, but also a metallic aftertaste that I'm pretty sure was not intentional. Other than that a bit grainy, pours a deep translucent amber that's quite fetching. But a bit of a bad deal overall. That's what I get for buying sale beers.
