3.8/5  rDev -4.3%

I had this on-tap in a taster glass at the brewery.

Appearance: rich red hue with just the littlest hint of haze and an ivory head leaving a nice lace.

Smell: rather beery aroma; lots of toasty malt and earthy hops.

Taste: drier than most altbiers I've had with a toasty malt flavor right up front. Bitterness is moderate and earthy in character. Kind of like an ESB, almost. I like this take on the style.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and creaminess. I like it.

Overall: a very drinkable example of the style, if a bit drier than normal. Another solid brew from Reuben's.

'stone fruit, crisp, bitter, refreshing'

Pretty damn excited that someone is making an altbier around here - very cloudy amber body. A nice sharp hop bite, nutty malt, fall apple. Good stuff - i see more of this in my future.
