Notes/Commercial Description:
"According to Phil [Roche, brewer and beer developer], a generous amount of Munich and Vienna malts give this beer its copper color and toasty-caramel aroma. German noble hops provide complimentary bitterness and a clean, dry finish. The beer has been cold-conditioned for six weeks and goes down smooth."

43 IBU

Originally a pub-only beer, Re-released in April 2012 as part of the Brewer's Share series.

Bomber on a spigelau glass.

A - looks beautiful. Nice copper color.
S- slightly nutty, but extremely weak. Had to really look for it.
T - slightly nutty flavor. I was hoping for a lot more taste. 43 IBU? Where are they?
M - it's okay. Nothing to write home about. Lacking a litte.

O- expected a tad more.

Edit: had to run an errand and came back to this beer considerably warmer. I can now taste the Munich malt (might be caramunich) and it improved incredibly. Tastes grainy malty. Improved considerably.

Paid only 6 bucks for the bomber. Poured into my Samuel Adams Perfect Pint.

A - A deep chestnut brow with just a 1/4 inch of head that settles to a lace ring. Slow bubble patterns on this one.
S - Wow this beer smells wonderful! Toasted grains, hazelnuts and caramel malts highlight. Smell is very authentic and doesn't smell boozy.
T - Pretty much what I expected all the toasted grains and hazelnuts showed up but my palate kind of wanted more sweet malts.
M - Still it is quite balanced and easy to drink. Sort of chewy and medium bodied also.

Overall a very tasty authentic to German tasting Altbier. A home run for the price as well.
