On-tap at the Draughthouse, came with a free Hops & Grain pint!

Alt-eration pours with a deep, chestnut brow body beneath a well-retained light khaki head. Great nose on this altbier. It's a malt-bomb with brown and nutty malts leading the way, but balanced nicely by a delicate, herbal hoppiness. Slight fruit note reminiscent of banana bread. Very mild fragrance, overall, but perfectly to style.

The flavor has a straightforward bitterness about it that's earthy and green on the tongue. Caramel-toffee maltiness is clean and somewhat spicy on the finish. The spritzy body is nicely carbonated, but feels a bit too thin on the back end. A minor nit-pick for an all-around excellent altbier. Perfect for the cool Austin weather this time of year.
