On tap at Common Market South End. Poured deep amber with a pillow of off white foam that stuck around. Smell was toasted malt, bread, a little caramel. Taste was more of the same, with caramel becoming more pronounced at the end. Some bitterness (the familiar lager bite) but nothing too harsh. Medium bodied and very easy to drink.
Overall a solid beer and an interesting opportunity to try another altbier - being in Charlotte I'm spoiled by OMB, and this beer didn't measure up to that standard. A good beer and something I'd drink again though.

"Brewed for the nature lover in all of us, our Tree Hugger Ale is blossoming with flavor. Behold the amber color of this "Altcentric" ale and celebrate the majestic balance of both hops and malt." Brewed in the style of an Altbier.
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a pint glass. Served above 53º Fahrenheit.
(Appearance) Pours a frothy, creamy head of a tan white color over a mildly hazy copper orange body with mild speckled sediment. Carbonation is light and relaxed. Retention is above average, lacing is light and spotty. 3.75
(Smell) Aromas of lightly toasted bread malt, biscuity caramel grain combine with a light floral effervescent hop profile to make an approachable aroma. Fruity notes of apricot, cherry and white raisin round out the aroma. Potency is medium. 3.5
(Taste) The malt profile consists of a nice blend of bready and biscuity malts to make a quaffable and clean malt profile. The finish reveals a touch of floral and estery fruit flavors with a mellow bitterness. 3.5
(Mouthfeel) Texture is clean, mildly chewy, light. Carbonation generates a light frothy aroma for a subtle mouthfeel. Body is light/medium for the style, shy of medium overall. Balance is sweet over bitter. Alcohol presence is light, and imperfections are far and few. 3.75
(Overall) A fairly simple but enjoyable style by Terrapin, not commonly enough brewed in America although this is a fairly light and easy drinking Altbier, it makes for a nice substitution to Amber ales or even lighter bodied brown ales. 3.5
