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

Not a very good brew, just okay. One of those ales that just misses the mark, and I had this one right in Juneau Alaska where it's brewed.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Format: a 355mL brown bottle with a decent craft label.

Appearance: a dark copper amber colour with some ruby highlights. Very little carbonation visible. A thin white head lasts the distance.

Aroma: toasted malts, some fruits and a touch of spice. Okay, if not mind-blowing.

Taste: more stone fruits and a touch of earth here, with those toasted malts coming through more strongly. A nice beer.

Aftertaste: some sour cherries linger on the finish along with those earth flavours and some bitterness.

Mouth feel: lighter in feel with a moderate carbonation. It might have been a bit better with a fuller feel and more carbonation.

Overall: a nice selection of flavours and a pleasant combination of sweet, sour and bitter. A good mid-range altbier.
