This brew pours a reddish brown color with a two finger tan head which lasts for several minuets. Some of the head remains on top until the end. Good carbonation. Moderate lacing.
The smell is thick and malty; bready and yeasty. Dank earth, grassy and fruit smells.
The taste follows the nose with thick bready roasted and sweet malts. A sugary then nutty taste follows with a small amount of piney hops on the backend.
The feel is thick and chewy; malty along with a dry grassy taste left on the tongue after swallowing.
Overall this is a good malty beer. It is fairly sweet with just enough malts to balance it out from becoming too sweet. My one complaint is that the nutty smell did not come through in the taste, at least not that I could detect. If you like malty, thick brews then give this one a try.

After a nice good hard pour this beer comes out a full deep amber with a sticky one finger light tannish colored head,aone full ring of lace is left behind as it settles very very slowly.The aromas are very dissapointing with not much other than some iron/mettalic notes coming thru.The body is smooth just a tad light,but the smoothness for the style was nice.Dryer on the palate with some nuttiness and a firm crispness,some leafy hops and that metallic tinge in the finish.A beer I could drink all day,I may have liked a little more sweetness to it wich for me that is saying something.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.
Dense rocky head, impressive with a clear reddish hue. Aromas of earthy malt, fresh grass, bread, and faintly herbal hop. Smooth, moderate sized body, wet, fresh grain, toasty, mineral, herbal, hay, very malty, hint of sweetness, clean, ample hop bitterness, drying finish.
Wow, Terrapin pretty much nailed the style here. Very well done.

Appearance: light molasses brown with tan highlights, thin off white head, good clarity
Aroma: nutty with a slight sweet molasses hint, little bit of a yeasty fruitiness, slight toasty bread notes,
Taste: smooth, easy drinking with an embracing nuttiness with a slight sweetness and fruitiness to it. A great balance overall. Great malt character balanced by just enough bitterness
Mouthfeel: lager like mouthfeel, crisp and medium bodied but with a slight ale like thickness to it. Medium carbonation
Overall: Not quite as good as the german altbiers but definitely a very solid american interpretation. Expect nuttiness and slight sweetness on the tongue with a balanced finish.

Went to terrapin and had this beer at the location itself. really great! a german alt bier that is very versitile, you can drink this beer year round. i have also like old mecklenburg copper ale but this one is better. A bit sweet but really nice. i hope terrapin keeps this one around and sells it outside the brewery.
