A - Light brown with good clarity. About an inch of egg shell head with little retention and stick.

S - Heavy on the malts, baked bread, caramel, crackers, yeasty.

T - Big caramel malts up front, bread, yeasty, corn, followed by a fruity flavor in the back end. Highly drinkable with big flavor to alcohol ratio.

O - Solid brew - not really familiar with an altbier, but this one drinks more like an octoberfest to me.

From 08/09/13 notes. Had this at Rippy's, among other places, over the weekend in Nashville. 12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

a - Pours a deep amber color with two inches of off white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of grains, bready malts, caramel malts, and dough. Not a ton going on, though not bad at all.

t - Tastes of grains, caramel, dark fruity malts, caramel malts, bready malts, dough, and biscuit malts. Some nice fruit, better than the nose was.

m - Light to medium body, more onthe light side and moderate carbonation. Overall a good mouthfeel as it is very easy to drink.

o - Overall a solid altbier that is very easy to drink; a nice alternative than al the Bud Lights being drank around you on Broad St. Nice fruit in the taste, worth checking out in a bar with not a lot of craft options.

Nice golden-amber color but that's about it. Tastes like bread and has a sour aftertaste. A little bit of sweet flavor would have helped. The taste is the number one priority which is why I gave it a overall rating to match the taste. Yazoo never fails to disappoint.
