Small off white head quickly dies with much lacing and that goes away after not to long a span of time on this clear lightish copper colored beer.

A very light sweet lightly roasted caramel malt aroma.

A light roasted caramel malt taste that borders on sweet and yet bitter with it's slight hops touches coming through.

A light dry aftertaste with some slight sweet caramel notes on this medium bodied beer.

This is a light caramel beer, kinda like a washed out Amber Bock or Shiner Bock.

Pours a semi-cloudy amber, not surprisingly, with a minimal head of carbonation and little retention at all.

Nose is chewy grains -- malty and toasty. Pretty standard amber ale.

Taste is, again, toasty and grainy, with a tinge/hint of citrus hops at finish. Overall, a sturdy and session-worthy ale, but not a game-changer.

Pours to a half inch head that falls to a thin ring of foam. No lacing. Color is a deep copper-amber. Aroma is very German, with soft noble hops and sweet decocted malts. Flavor is balanced and easygoing with sweet and nutty malts perfectly balanced with noble hops. Mouthfeel is light and CO2 is good. A very tasty and accurate Alt.
