3.78/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Drank out of the can so only flavor notes.
The beer has a rich maltiness towards a hefty brown ale. Caramel sweetness, nuttiness, toasted malt, almost even some coffee and chocolate. There's a punch of deeply sweet and roasted apples in there with that fruit quality coming through. On the back, it attacks of herbal and cleans off quite nicely.
Not the altbier I'm familiar with from Dusseldorf, but it's a higher ABV, richer, and a good drinking beer.
As someone who enjoys some malty brews, this is a decent attempt.

3.85/5 rDev -1%

A - Bright, amber hued. Small head on pour, dissipating quickly. Unassuming appearance.
S - Caramel, toffee, and butterscotch dominate the aroma.
T - Nutty with lager-type malt characteristics. Roasted malt nicely balanced in the background. No indication of alcohol.
M - Creamy and full yet crisp. Medium-low carbonation that works well with the flavor.
O - A deceptively strong alt-beer perfect for a breezy summer evening. Could wish for a better head but the flavor compensates somewhat.

4.13/5 rDev +6.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Pours with a bit of haze but brilliant golden orange and bronze. A fat head of tan foam that falls slowly and leaves lace. Nose is rich malt an a light floral. Biscuit and a bit of sweetness. Tatse is malty and layered. Lots of malt with a softly floral hop backnote to give it a sensational sweetness and wonderfull impression. Medium mouthfeel, crisp and with a slight tingle from alcohol this one finishes dry and slightly bitter, with a long lingering aftertaste of creamy biscuit, smooth light caramel and a malty resonance.
Dapper, well crafted and simply great! There's a restrained hops character on this that seems to stand back politely.
