When pouring the beer, you get a red-brown color with a semi-bleached brown foam.
The foam have large bubbles and are medium loose, and disappears at a leisurely pace, leaving little trace.
The scent is sweet and malty with notes of roasted nuts.
There is something healthy in the scent that I really can not place that raises the scent.
Some hints of chocolate, caramel and some spices.
The taste is a bit malty and now the nuts until more along with caramel and dried fruit.
There are hints of some bitter herbs and a little pepper, dull so we can find a little chocolate / praline.
A mild bitterness in the background that disappear right.
Although this has a low carbon dioxide content among themselves.

3.17/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

The colour is deep warm brown (60 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger head is compact and beige; it sinks slowly leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is sweet and malty with roasted nuts, caramel and BBQ meats. Hints of oil paint and marzipan.

The taste is malty, too. Nuts, caramel, dried fruits, and some bitter herbs. Hints of crayons and nougat. Some chocolate candy and mild clean bitterness in the background. Medium body. The aftertaste got growing notes of crayons, brown malt and dried flowers. Mild clean bitterness. The finish is smooth with caramel malt.

The carbonation is mild to medium; the fresh mid-sized bubbles are long-lived. The liquid is semi-smooth.

An OK take on the Altbier style, but I didn’t like the crayon/paint flavours.
