3.98/5  rDev +11.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Pours a nice hazy red color, maybe some orange, a little lighter than red, with a decent 1 cm head. It falls back kind of quickly leaving a bit of a ring which leaves only a bit of lacing. Decent looking. A little more clarity would be nice. The smell is pretty good. And interesting caramelly toastiness comes up front. Something is a little fruity, something is a little herbal and spicy - minty a bit, and something is a little leafy. The nice breadiness in here makes this one interesting. I really love the taste of altbiers - I think it's an amazing blend of what I like about German lagers and American ales. The malt body is really interesting too. It's like a nice nutty bready taste, with this minty sugar syrup poured on top of it. I really like it - it tastes fairly clean, with just a hint of fruity flavors. I like the graininess too, that isn't a flavor that comes out in other ale styles. The body is nice, medium full, a nice rush of carbonation, and a little bite in the finish. The drink is pretty good. Enjoyable, nice and light, a bit clean, the flavors are nice. I could probably drink quite a few of these - and I find that to be quite normal with the style.

3.34/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a rich, murky brown. Mostly hazy. The head is very lacking. Not much there and what is there doesn't last long. A bit of lace.

Not a bad scent, just not a good scent, there just isn't much there. Some standard issue malt mixed with some caramel malt. Nose is of old school hop varieties, which I guess is kind of the point. Just middle of the line.

The taste is lagerish, but with some flavor. Caramelly taste dominates with some earthy, floral hop notes. No help from the sessionable ABV level.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and almost creamy. More on the savory side than anything. Only faint bitterness deep in the swallow. No alcohol heat. Malty sweetness throughout.

It's just above average. Not really what I'm used to with this brewer, so slightly disappointing. Everything is muted.

3.53/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a stange:

Pours orange to light copper with a creamy head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of brown sugar, some musty notes and a restrained fruitiness.

The taste is of light steely caramel, a coppery bitterness, some mustiness (not quite skunky - but approaching it). There is a mild general fruitiness mixed in. Tastes better than described.
Seems a bit imbalanced towards the hops, but malt does grow as it progresses.

Initial fizz quickly settles, though some water mixes in in the middle. Still, it is smooth enough to be satisfactory.

I liked it more what I scored it than described it. A hoppier version of the style. All in all, a good brew.
