"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

3.38/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a copper/amber color with a nice white head. The head is dissipating too quickly, probably because of the lack of carbonation in the beer.

Smell: Sort of a fresh scent, a lot like fresh laundry. No real scents to report.

Taste: Heavily malted like molasses with a little roasted nut/toasted thing happenin'.

Mouthfeel: Medium body,

It's OK, but I want more, especially from Terrapin. Terrapin makes great beers, but this one is a little better than average.
