a: Dark ruby in color. Nice lacing, but not much head. Fairly sure it due to tap temperature is too cold.

S: no hops detected, or its just average hop wise. It had a very earthy and chocolate aroma. smokey. reminded me of the Bamburg smoked beers.

T: Very smokey at first almost porter like. Some chocolate malt, very oily and chalk like aftertaste. Lots of sweet malt, no hops to balance it out.

M: soft finish, medium to heavy body. Low carbonation.

O: humm does not seem to fit style to me. its too dark and too porter like, its more of a old ale in some ways, maybe the alt does not mean its an Altbier, sadly no1 knew @ brewery bar. still its not a terrible beer really, just was not what I wanted. Since I had only 1 I would not put too much weight on this 1 yet.

A: quarter finger head. Clear with brownish red color.

S: toasted malt and roasted nut.

T: strong caramel malt flavor. Almost too sweet. I am getting roast and coffee notes as well.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation. Very smooth.

Overall: my first of this genre and from what I have been told it is a variation of the style. Its almost too sweet. The flavor is complex with many different tastes that seem to coalace well.

Miss this beer more than any others. This was one of the best beers I'd ever had with nice roasted malt flavors with a mild hint of bananas and caramel, absolutely amazing ...!

A - The beer has a clear, amber colored body with a small, off white head that leaves little lace.

S - A light roast aroma with some bread notes and a hint of spicy hops.

T - Sweet caramel and toffee malt up front that lasts through the finish. Some light hop flavor and bitterness to balance out the significant sweetness in the aftertaste.

M - A moderately thick body, average carbonation, and a fairly sweet finish.

D - This is a nice beer, but not really a very good example of it's purported style. Too sweet and not really as hoppy as I would like it to be for an alt, but it is still a nice, balanced amber ale.
