A - Slightly hazy blonde body, on the light side for an alt bier. No head or lacing present.

S - Sweet Riesling, raw honey, malt sweetness. Once again, a big presence of honey sweetness in the aromas.

T - Sweet malt base but not terribly rich or luscious. A lighter malt sweetness that is paired with a steady presence of honey. Light, filtered honey. Some chewy grains around, with a wet/metallic sort of bite to it.

M - Very drinkable, a light bodied alt, with a pleasant feel. Mildly carbonated.

O - A pleasant beer, I could see taking down a handful of these.

Dim peach. Constant 1/2" skim. Frothy 'latte' head.

Nose is fresh, clean, and slim. Faint suggestions of lemons, various other citric elements, hay, grain, and cream.

Tastes comes on very slowly and smoothly; grain, rainwater, wildflowers, mewn hay. Little sweeter than expected.

Mouthfeel is silk-smooth, and endlessly drinkable.

I've been gravitating towards well-built, subtle beer styles in the summer and this fits the bill perfectly. Went down fantastically while watching the sunset on the porch.

Into a half-liter mug, this beer is a very pale gold with a moderate head. Crystal clear. Sweet, grainy malt aroma. Good malt flavor for a light beer, like the best Helles. Balanced by a light-to-medium bitterness that dries out the sweetness, and adds a touch of floral hop character. Fruitiness is low but detectable. Light bodied with a crisp character.

Very drinkable beer, light but tasty.

Pours a pale golden amber with a copious quantity of puffy white foam floating on top. Aroma is sweet grains and some bubble gum and cherry fruity notes, along with another earthy or perhaps musty element. Bready and quite sweet on the palate, with some breakfast cereal, popcorn and toast, classy floral hops and an emergent citrus note, orange I would say. Pleasantly assertive but not overpowering hops. Rather fruity. Light thin body and moderate carbonation. For some reason I am surprised that this is so appealing. More sweet and gentle than my conceptualization of the alt style but a great session brew, with enough complexity to hold one's attention.

I believe that this is my first altbier. Picked up fairly cheaply at my local store. Pours with an assertive 3 finger frothy white head which sits upon its golden body. Nose has notes of malt and also a pleasant sweet floral aroma. Initially a huge pale malt taste smacks you in the face before slowly fading into flower notes and a subtle, sweet finish. Drinkability is very nice on this one. I must get some more alts to try. I'd love to see how this would be fresh.

A nice "Organically Cloudy" golden amber color, the head large and frothy, the resultant lace a fine latticework to coat the glass. The organic musk is quite noticeable, the malts and a nice crisp tone also present, and start is quite sweet, the top middling in feel. Finish is a bit tart and the acidity biting with the hops plentiful and the aftertaste dry and long lasting. I’ve really gotten quite fond of these organic unfiltered beers; they have a certain appealing earthiness.

Single bomber bottle copped from Gary's in Madison for $2.75...
Very different than your average Altbier, with a pronounced mustard and butter flavor, very unique with a strong body and flavor to match...
Pours a hazy, murky hue with rising carbonation and a significant amount of lacing...
Smell: Replete with bread, butter, carmel, and slight sugars...
Taste: Flavor strongly complemented the aroma, and as mentioned before, had a mustard-like aftertaste, with bread and butter on the tongue as well...
Good, creamy mouthfeel along with a great level of drinkability...
Certainly a different-style beer...
Worth a try...

Hazy body, golden orange in color with a thin yet persistant film of white foam. Sweet, fruity aroma with a musty, yeasty touch. Flavor is sweet and malty with a herbal note and light, hoppy finish. Well balanced and very drinkable. Rich, substantial mouthfeel.

Pours medium yellow with a foamy white head. No lace, moderate retention (about half a glass before gone).

Grassy notes with some herbal aromas, some light malt.

Nice light malt, with some sweet grass and bitter herb. Dries out a bit, and you get a grassy bitter bite. Clean brew with a nice bitter and light malt finish.

Nice light body, decent carbonation.

What more can you ask for from a brewer. This is terrific and refreshing brew. Nice job.
