4.47/5 rDev +23.5%
Appearance: Cloudy, golden color, thin white head that retains well, noticable carbonation.
Smell: Earthy yeast smell, grainy and kind of sour, barnyard hay, very prominant on the nose.
Taste: Similar to the nose, grainy, earthy, tangy, a little sour and bitter on the finish, remind me of a wheat beer, but more complex.
Mouthfeel: Mouthfeel is juicy, medium to light in body, easy to drink. Went well with my kiebasa and sauerkraut sandwich.

The beer poured a hazy golden color that produced a very nice, fluffy, white head that was retained very well and settled into a thin cap that lasted throughout the beer. Excellent presentation.
The beer produced a nice grainy aroma with a nice compliment of yeast. Pretty much as expected, but I was hoping for a slightly stronger aroma.
The taste of the beer is excellent; a grainy taste with a slight hop bitterness and some of the yeast baked in as well, but the beer leaves a nice grainy/sweet aftertaste. There was nothing in this beer that was overpowering, just a good solid taste.
The beer had a medium body to it, with a clean, crisp feel, which made the beer extremely easy to drink. Overall, this is a world-glass beer and one that I will enjoy often.

appearance; lighter colored then some Altbier, straw yellow with the slightest bit of cloudyness. Intricate lacing as a beautiful head retreats at a moderate speed.
smell; malty and some fruit and honey, slightest bit of floral hops as well.
taste; Hops are almost absent, just some floral flavors but slight. Very noticeable fruity malts, that linger into the aftertaste and turn almost toasty and warm. Some grape-like tartness like a Kölsch, but then is quickly neutralized by the malts. This is very solid with the malts, without being sweet, that's what I expect from this style....well done! Great aftertaste!
mouthfeel; Loose and smooth, with weak carbonation, certainly not flat though, nothing special just quality.
drinkability; smooth, light, and tasty, one could drink all night and day.

Great classic (easily recognizable) label. Pours a golden yellow with a slight haze. Foamy head on top has some sparse lacing that does hang around quite a bit.
Aroma is a bit of corn grain and some slightly skunked noble hop twang.
Flavor is very complex for such an innocent looking beer. Some floral sweetness...especially honeysuckle, crisp hops (slight metallic), and some light apple or pear flavors. A slight spice is in here too, maybe chai tea or clove, but its pretty mild.
I like this brew a lot. A bit light in color for the Alt style, but otherwise great. This brew was quite a surprise for me, very flavorful and full bodied for such a light lager. Great subtly and smooth mouthfeel.

Heady, over-ripe, mushy bartlett pear fragrances are obvious from arm's reach. The color is orange, yellow and bronze with a substantial, cream-colored head. Tons of fermenting pear fruit to this beer complete with seeds and doughy, wheaty, dried herb-infused slate nuances.
The texture is rich, with vanilla and chai notes sprinkled across an improbably dry frame of soft wood, orange candy, ginger and cream. Wow! Olivier Humbrecht-like skill here. Stubborn greatness. This beer takes no prisoners and doesn't stand criticism well. Utterly uncompromising.
My first Alt was a brand called "Hannen," which was better than Ganter products, but second choice to anything by Rothaus. Hannen was mocha-flavored, thin-bodied and brown. This is better and 180 degrees different.

A foamy white head sits atop this yellow munster alt. A bit paler than I had envisioned. The head doesn't last long.
Very floral notes are present and a nice earthy aroma.
Sweet and delicate in the flavor. More floral and straw characteristcs. Simply refreshing and delicious. Crisp and light in character. Finishes fairly dry. There is a left over floral and sweet taste.
This is awesome! I have only had a few sips and I'm in love. A great alt and I wish I could get this more often.
