Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 08-20-2001

Richly malty and long on the palate, with just enough hop backing to make this beautiful amber colored "alt" style beer notably well balanced.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pours a dark copper with a thin off-white head. Nothing to move to Alaska for so far...

Smell: sweetish cookie-dough malts; a little spicy fruit in there as well.

Taste: Much like the smell, but with a nice hop bitterness that comes in halfway through. Finish is roasty bitter with some minor sweet malt notes.

Mouthfeel and Drinkability: A fine medium to light bodied brew. Not my favorite beer style, but this example is drinkable enough.

12oz bottle into a tulip-shaped nonic...

A: Pours a clear amber with golden hues...minimal lacing...

S: Sweeter malt..caramel and toffee...fruity notes as well, possibly some yeast esters...caramel apples, other fruit as well.

T: Really follows the nose, not a big beer but the malt really stands out...there are some hints of spices, earthy hints of hops too but the light malty/caramel/fruitiness is dominant.

MF: Light to medium/light body...creamy notes, with lower carbonation.

O: Not a bad malty offering, there is a nice body of work with sweetness here.
