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.

A: Digging this nice amber look. Beautiful head to top it all off...or amybe that is just my supreme pouring skills coming to light again!

S: Eh...a bit like a blonde actually (wonder what yeast we get here) but there is a smooth citrus aroma that follows on the tale end. blends well to makean interesting pairing.

T: Not bad at all, reminds me of a smooth amber I had once form Williamsburg Alewerks...this has that great clean Alt taste too though. Love it!

M: Surprisingly heavy for such a lowly touted beer. I was actually expecting much less!

O: Very pleased with the flavor, the price, and the label (my favorite part of Terrapin) Buy it if you like the style, a good sample of it. I could even see a full sixer of this in the future.

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.
