3.78/5  rDev n/a
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: impressive clarity, foamy white head, coppery-brown with red hues (lighter in color than Schlossel and Uerige, darker than Schumacher)

Aroma: toasty malt character, restrained aroma though

Taste: very toasty, almost like a light bock in flavor, very restrained dark fruit notes, spicy and floral noble hop to round out flavor, finish is smooth and a little sweet with mild fruit character

Mouthfeel: medium body, lager like, but not quite as crisp or carbonated (definitely the least carbonated so far),

Overall Impression: A middle of the road altbier, not straying too far towards lager or ale, with restrained fruit flavor and lager clarity, but ale like carbonation and mouthfeel.

Tall flip-top bottle: best before 15 Dec 2012. Poured (three times) into one of my Hannen Alt glasses @ home during a random tasting evening on 16 Nov 2012.

Looks reminded me of a cola with a head that stayed longer than normal: certainly that colour anyway.

Poor nose: just weak malt notes and an earthy whiff.

The taste is also on the weak side: mildly malty but no depth or 'umph' to the brew at all, a big disappointment to be honest. Maybe it's better fresh or on-tap, but I doubt it. The beer did seem to grow on me a little as I got used to its flavours, there was some bitterness to be found along with those malts mentioned earlier but it still didn't cut the mustard as a good Alt in my eyes.
