Look- Pours pale golden and very slightly hazy with a dense, off-white head

Aroma- sweet biscuity malt and perfumy floral hops come together as one

Taste- the biscuity sweetness and floral hops are there along with an underlying mild tang

Feel- light bodied with significant carbonation, dry finish

Overall- this was enjoyable, and my first Munster Alt. The mild tartness coupled with the biscuity malt and floral hops made for an interesting drinking experience

500mL bottle coded 04120N8 poured into a stange glass at fridge temp 5.1% ABV. The beer pours very hazy, but not chunky, straw yellow resembling pineapple juice. The head is off white and recedes to a thin cap and leaves a little lacing. The aroma is stale hops and pils malts. The taste is slightly tangy with minimal pils malt presence and a bit to hop flavor on the back end. The mouthfeel is thin bodied, adequately carbonated and dry in the finish. Overall, not great. I'm still looking for an answer on the bottle dating. I suspect this is way too old.

Pours light straw and clear with a little sediment at the bottom. Almost zero head despite being well carbonated. Wheat and oats on the nose with a sweet candy sugar. Taste is mellow and smooth oatmeal with maybe a little white peach. A prickly crisp carbonation finish. Zesty rye spiciness but very subdued. Dark bran finish with a light dry hop finish. Thin dry and refreshing with a mild dry finish. Easy drinking. Really tasty light beer. Not all that exciting, but tasty.

Slightly hazy gold, creamy white head, with very fine bubbles.

Aroma is fruity/estery, yeast, and (unbaked) bread dough.

Flavor is bready, with just a touch of citrus (tangerine?) and rye bread-like sourness, followed by light sweetness. Finishes with pleasant mild bitterness, accentuated by fine, prickly carbonation on the tip of the tongue.

Seems like a combination of a Belgian blonde + a pils. I like it, and would have it again, especially considering it is $3.99/16. oz bottle. My first altbier, so not sure what it is supposed to be, and rating it as-is , not compared to some standard of the style. *shrug* It's good. I am enjoying it. That's what matters. ;)

Poured into stange. Rim of head, bubble lace. Dull straw color.

Malty biscuit nose, with some lemon notes.

Taste very similar to the nose, grassy, rose fruits and lemon, plenty of bread.

Mouth is wet, but not watery. A very refreshing ale.

My first altbier. If not indicative of the style, it is nevertheless an excellent beer that keeps one's interest throughout the experience.

500 ml bottle into pint glass, 09010N6 bottle code. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, white bread, pepper, light lemon/pear, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of cracker, white bread, pepper, light lemon/pear, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, white bread, pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt, earthy hops, and light fruity yeast flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is a very good beer. This did not resemble an Altbier style at all; but was nearly spot on to a German Pilsner or Kolsch style. Very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink; and was very enjoyable as such.
