look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle with no code date visible into a pint glass and get 1/4 finger of head.

A: Pours a dark amber color and I get 1/4 finger of head that is gone almost immediately to leave a ring around the top of my glass. There is a little lacing but nothing to write home about.

S: Sweet malts and the smell of nuts.

T: Taste of sweet malt a little bitterness and finishes sweet. Overly sweet.

M: Medium-bodied and carbonated. It goes down ok.

O: This beer is just ok. This is not a beer I would go to again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: A bit of a bubble show produces a frothy ecru head; the amber colored liquid is slightly hazy; nice retention all around, with a reasonable amount of lacing

Smell: Brown bread with a hint of caramel; slightly herbal

Taste: Brown bread forward, with just a touch of caramel underpinning; herbal, metallic flavors develop in the middle; the finish is almost medicinal

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: More like a Neue bier than an Alt bier and that is no compliment
