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.

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 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.

The Munster Alt pours a straw clear yellow with a solid 2 finger foam head in a pilsner glass. It left some tight bubble foam lacing. A good looking beer. No freshness date.

The aroma was malty and grainy. It was chewy malt most of the way through. It has a little zest in the finish with a slight hop bitterness. It had a lemony taste as it finished. Overall it was refreshing beer after a balmy spring day.
