A: Poured from the bottle into a Lindeman's Kriek tall, thin glass - the closest I have to a stange. Body is clear, copper-amber in color with a 2-finger light beige head that retains well, fading to leave behind thick foamy lace up top. Nice appearance of rising carbonation bubbles.
S: Toasted grain and a touch of herbal or earthy hops. Clean and fairly light - appropriate for the style.
T: Lightly toasted cereal grain is there, as in the nose. Slight hop bitterness adds a bit of balance. Again, it's kind of leafy or herbal in character. Slight minerally or metallic sense lingers.
M: Light in body, a tad bit watery/thin.
O: Pretty good. I haven't had many altbiers; it's been awhile since the old days of Stickenjab, and even Southampton's altbier (which I recall liking a lot) I haven't had in awhile. Non-offensive and drinkable, I can't complain about this beer. But it does nothing to impress, either.
