Very interesting brew from Great Basin. Smell is a little grainy and a little perfumey. Taste starts with a tart apricot and ends with a sort of adjunct taste that lingers on in the back of your mouth. In between is a mini maelstrom of tastes. It's hard to be sure what's happening. Very complex, not for everyone, but a bold choice to be in their flagship lineup.

Picked up a sixer at Winco because it was cheaper than anywhere else, and I knew I needed something mild (read: not hoppy or strong) for certain guests for an upcoming party.
Pours a dark amber color, thin off white head, about 2/5" in depth. Aroma was barely anything, some smooth Oktoberfest like malt aromas.
Taste has a little more bitterness of a not necessarily hop derived origin. A little bit metallic/coppery, not as smooth as hoped for style, but the heft and mouthfeel is about right otherwise. Its a strangely viscous beer for being under 5% alcohol.
I think its possible that this beer could cut into the Fat Tire market, I think its aimed at that segment of people looking for something a little more substantial than BMC, but aren't necessarily into the hop or dark beer thing.

Pours a thin head on a dark straw colored body.
The aroma is musty grain, in the alt style.
The taste has a grain flavor to it, but is overall watery.
The texture is thin with moderate carbonation.
It lacked real flavor. Boost that up a little and this wouldn't be too bad.

Clear dark amber colored ale with a small tan colored head.
Smells fruity and malty with a nice caramel scent.
Starts out mildly sweet with a moderate bitterness and a long caramel finish. Not real complex just your basic generic Altbier taste.
Mouthfeel is OK.
Overall generic Altbier.

Bomber into a snifter.
A: Brownish orange with a fizzy white head. Scattered lacing.
S: Lightly tart grape and plum with a bready malt base. Light biscuit presence with some earth. Perfumy floral notes are evident.
T: Light lactic sourness up front with a bit of tartness. Grainy, bready, and biscuity. There's a drying grape finish.
M: Upper light body with high carbonation. The mouthfeel is prickly, dry, and sticky.
Overall: I doubt this is supposed to be sour but it's kind of nice in any case. Reminds me of a Berliner Weiss.
