3.78/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Clear amber with two fingers of foamy, light-tan head. Good retention and thick lacing.

Refined sweet malt — lightly toasted, almost nutty, almost woody — with a whiff of carbon dioxide in the nose.

Burnt caramel, light walnut, and earthy, bitter finish in the taste.

Full bodied, smooth feel with plenty of carbonation.

Nice malt profile and easy-drinking.

Not much for aroma or minor characteristics but the malt and mouthfeel are really on point.

16 oz can, dated 11/18/19 so 2 weeks old

pours a brilliant clear dark amber color, thick cream colored head. head fades after awhile. aroma is a mix of mild caramel malts and earthy hops. taste is fairly malty but not overly sweet. drier finish, lingering hop bitterness. thin to medium bodied.

Had this on 2020-01-01 near Pittsburgh, PA from a 16oz canned on 2019-11-18

A - Clear copper with a 1-finger tan head and light lace

S - Lightly toasted brown bread with apple butter, light caramel and earthy spice

T - Much like the aroma although there's a heavier roasted malt flavor. There's some citrus, caramel, earthy/black tea and a good bit of lingering bitterness in the dry finish; more than the Fat Head's Altbier I had last week.

M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation.

O - I enjoyed this beer and have recently become enamored with the altbier style. I'd have this again although the lingering bitterness in the finish was more than I prefer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a tallboy can into a tulip

L: Nearly clear copper brown pour. 2 fingers of foamy head... great ring of lacing.

S: Toasted grains... mild dark sugars and noble hops.

T/F: Follows the nose. Toasted grains and sugars. Malty but not sweet. Mild hopping for bitterness without a lot of hop flavor. Crisp and balanced. The finish is grainy and clean. Well carbonated.

O: A solid Alt beer... an unusual style, and one I was surprised to see Tired Hands tackle. Well made... just not a huge fan of the style, and I probably judged the beer unfairly by that metric. I love their other stuff a lot more but would definitely drink this one again.

From a 16oz purchased at TH at last week's can release. From the tap list description: Alt Bier. 5.6% Brewed with Munich, Vienna, and Caramel malts. Dry hopped with Cascade. Brewed for Jean’s grandfather, Joseph Trendler. Dies ist eine sehr gut Altbier. Notes of candied orange peels, deep pine, fresh baked bread, and sticky toffee.

Another delicious beer. Pours a deep copper color with a thick head. This batch smells and tastes like an Altbier should with a bit of hops on top. Well done.

Pours a dark amber color with a wisp of head and some lacing going down the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and a hint of malt sweetness. Flavor follows with hop forward acidity and bitterness that gives way to a sugary, malty body. The light body and acidic flavors don't really fit the bill as an altbier, and it's kind of a mess stylistically all around. With that being said, it's still drinkable, even if slightly infected or over acidic.

16 oz can, dated 11/10/17, poured into a pint glass

A- A slightly murky brownish deep amber with a two finger off white head

S- Some citrusy and piney hops, touch of tea leaves, toasted malts, some sweet bread, hoppier than I thought it was going to be

T- Toasted malts, some caramel malts, sweet bready, touch of citrus, piney finish, slightly nutty.

M- Smooth, light body.

O- This a solid, easy drinking beer, but I do feel it is over hopped some.

Pours a hazy copper with honey edges and a finger of head. The nose is unexpectedly hoppy. The body is decidedly light for the style. The finish is dry and hoppy.

Unless there is a new style called "alt-IPA," this offering is not at all true to style. Too thin, no bready maltiness and waaaay too hoppy. I like hops but not every damn thing needs to be a hop bomb.
