OMG I had the chance to get this, and am now wanting to fill 'a many growlers of this Alt.

- Nutty-brown look.. great tan head and lacing all around...

- Smell was light, but so very good.. I can't pinpoint all the aromas... a great blend of German malts, roasted and not.. sweet and strong... very well balanced.. bittering hop...

- This is the best part, a robust malt character.. it really does seem true to the style.. dense, and hits every spot on the tongue.. herb, sweetness... earthy... sweet strong malt, and a perfect compliment of spicy and/or floral hop.

- Bit dry and chewy.... just slightly oily...

- Great carbonation, flavor, and just all around very good. Complex it is! One of the best Alts if not the best I have ever had.
