As the name implies, this beer pours a nice amber color. The head is off white. The nose is malty, in a pleasing way. The taste is actually more hop forward than I would expect. Some sweetness. Some malt. Rather full bodied beer. Delicious as always.

Backlog. On tap at the Knitting Factory. Flavors of nut and roasted malt permeate this beautiful beer. Not bad at all. I used to not be a fan of this one. I guess my tastes are changing?

Pours somewhat dark brown/red, two finger white foamy head, decent amount of lacing, malty somewhat nutty aroma, sweet yet a deep bready maltiness in the taste, smooth over the palate, about a medium in body, good altbier that I would have again.

Has a slight banana note. I moved away from Alasaka , and while it isn't my favorite beer from this brewery I always enjoy it from one of the establishments here in Wisconsin that has it on tap.
