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.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: A lighter amber color than usual. A nice prominent head remained throughout the drinking session.

Smell: A hint of spice to the mix, but not overwhelming.

Taste: The taste was above average for an Amber. I would have preferred it to be a little more prominent, though.

Mouthfeel: This beer had a good mouthfeel that permeated throughout.

Overall: This beer was above average, but barely so. It was a nice beer that can be drank throughout an entire night. A good beer, but overall not exceptional.

Poured from bottle date 081112 to a pint glass the beer arrives a clear dark copper amber color with a 1/5 finger cream/off-white head with some retention and lacing, but not much. The nose is caramel sweet with an undertone of toasted barley. A hint of fruity nature as well. The flavor is very much the same, malty, with a semi-sweet presence. Mildly bitter, hints of fruit and nuts. Very easy to drink, very approachable. Earthy hops are mild in flavor. Creamy. Very enjoyable. Finishes smooth and creamy and clean. Adequately carbonated and lighter bodied. Not a ton of flavor, but this is an altbier, and one of the most enjoyable and drinkable I've had.
