Served on tap into a nonic glass.
A- Poured a dark brown with off-white frothy head that left minimal lace.
S- Pretty faint aroma of bready malt and caramel notes.
T- Big bready malt, juicy fruit notes, toffee, toasted malt, and some light chocolate notes.
M- Very smooth and creamy, soft carbonation, refreshing, and semi-dry finish.
O- Altbiers don't seem to be a very popular or trendy style. Most that I have had have been drinkable but not too exciting. This is absolutely the best I have had in the style.
Serving type: on-tap

Big head topped a lightly hazy auburn brew.
Aroma and flavor are spot-on altbier, I could smell it as soon as I opened the can. Malt forward, caramel malt, bready, biscuit, grain, maybe a hint of chocolate with a nice but indistinct hop bitterness that balances well.
Body is medium-thick and drinks like it's bigger than it is.
I'm a big altbier fan and now I have another choice, made better in that it's a local brewery (as local as we can get here in Tx). One more plus is that it comes in cans. Very nice job hops and malt!
Serving type: can
