On-tap at City Tap House, Washington, DC

A: The beer is hazy dark amber in color and gas no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that died down and left lacing covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of toasted malts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste starts out with initial flavors of toasted malts and hints of sweetness and transitions towards notes of hints of earthy yeast and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an interesting take on an altbier—it almost tastes like candi sugars were used but you only get slight bits of the associated sweetness.
