It's nice to see someone brewing an Alt in the US, especially locally. This beer is incorrectly categorized as an American Brown Ale. It is not. It says Alt on the bottle so that's what I'll score it as.
Appearance is a perfect amber hue. The only thing I want more of on the appearance is a little more head and head retention.
Carmel malt and biscuity malt in the nose. The taste is very smooth and balanced with subtle hops. Alts were never hoppy and this beer isn't overly hoppy. Still true to its German roots.
The mouthfeel is creamy and delicious. Crisp yet still an ale. Overall a nice Alt beer.

from a 12oz bottle
pours a nice deep copper color with a smallish creamy head
very light nose suggesting sweet malts and hints of spice, drying
clean classic taste, nice level of gentle astringency, with lager yeast and ale malts this is an alt done right, a very tasty brown
pleasant carbonation, light on the tongue, goes down easy
overall a nicely balanced clean and tasty American Brown, this is not one of my favorite styles but this example is quite enjoyable, not much complexity but I like it that way
full disclosure - reviewed as impartially as possible from a sample given to me by the brewers

To start with its listed on the bottle as a hybrid style between an Ale and a Lager, looks and drinks like a tasty Brown Ale. Poured from a bottle into a Pint glass showed a wonderful dark tea color with a small head, some lace clung to the sides of the glass. The aroma was rich and sweet which went with the taste...adding a hint of chocolate on the backside. Mouthfeel was medium and very nice, clean but with just enough lingering bitter sweet to remind you what you're drinking. Overall a very good brew, the bottled date was 7-17-13 so a fresh one to test had me wanting another.
