3.6/5  rDev -0.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

This beer poured a straw color and formed a nice bubbly foamy white head that left some circular lace when it subsided. Some carbonation present. An aroma of malt and grain. A flavor of grain, banana and lightly of citrus. The body was light and the finish slightly dry. My first try of this style, so the review may change.

Not an appetizing looking beer, with it's cloudy, pale gold body and weak head. Smells rather nice, however. It has a gentle grainy aroma, with a heavy dose of sour fruit - perhaps Granny Smith apple is the best comparison. Light smell of hops present as well. Taste is smooth and refreshing. Rather grassy, with a bit of tart fruitiness. Finishes clean with some herbal hop bitterness. Good brew for an unseasonably hot day!

Lighter than I'd expect. Relatively solid head that heald about an inch for a few minutes. Malts come through. A good amount of sweetness. Reminds me of a chocolate factory actually. Smooth.

A real light-colored alt style.Great rocky head nice soft/subtle toasted grain,and leafy hop taste.Very drinkable malt acented beer in my opinion,just enough green hop.Probably my first organic beer I have tried,not that it matters that much really I think.

Clear golden in hue if decanted off the yeast sediment. Impressive fluffy, thick well retained head. Herbal Hallertauer hop nose, along w/ a bit of mellow tartness due to the unusual use of wheat in the grist. Soft grainy malt flavors in flavor, but that honey - like sweetness is prominent, just as in Pinkus's Pils. Hop bitterness is fairly subdued for an alt and residual malt sweetness is high, but as a beer in itself this is a very tasty one. Hop flavor is absent. Although Munster lacks the crispness and assertive bitterness of an alt, there's plenty of flavor to make it an enjoyable brew.

4.35/5  rDev +20.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: Sleek brown euro style 17 oz bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Puffy cloud like white head floats on top of a hazy pale golden brew.

Smell: A bit raw and earthy with yeast, grain and a mild tartness in the nose.

Taste: Medium bodied with a crisp and chewy malt mouth feel. Lots of malt on the tongue with a very rounded grainy undertone. Hop bitterness is slightly assertive leaving a sweet herbal flavour in its path. Mild tart twang from the hops and yeast in the background from start to finish. More sweet grain and a long lasting grain taste make up the finish.

Notes: Brewed in the classic Alt style, lighter in colour though still retaining a sturdy malt backbone.
