my first alpine beer! it kind of sucks...
like the other guy said- apricot color, not carbonated much, no head.
smells like a crappy brew.
sorry, I might just be in a piss-y mood, but this is rather bland with a funky aftertaste. why go into details? kind of novelty tasting.... harsh. very difficult to finish the entire bottle. 5 oz flight taster, sure; but never a 22oz bottle.... sorry guys... still cant wait to make the drive down to taste your good stuff...
