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

Pours a light amber, like a glass of iced tea. The head is slight and quick to die. The aroma is thin, slightly malty, but only slightly. The flavor is decent, slightly honeyish, but vanishingly slight on the finish. The mouthfeel is quite thin. This is drinkable but hardly an outstanding example of an Alt.

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.
