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

From a bottle (love the tug on the label) into a stange
A: rich dark copper, with nice light on the edges, and a good 2 finger khaki head that sticks around a bit.
S: Smells like an altbier to me: toasted grainy bread and rich fruity esters
T: Malty sweet and some graininess balanced by some earthiness and nuttiness, and some floral hops giving it just a little edge toward the end...then the malt lingers a bit.
M: smooth, creamy, tasty, with just a little bitterness and astringency to give it a slight edge
Overall: Very nice, solidly built, and tasty.
