look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear, deep amber with a massive, dense off-white head, with superb retention. The carbonation is slight, Belgian-style lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Grassy hops vie with adundant toasted malt for a simple but very pleasant aroma.

Taste: Strong grassy and herbal hops up front, with an understated toasted malt presence. Later in the taste, the hops turn earthy with a lingering bitterness which utterly vanquishes the toasted malt. Finishes with a lingering earthy and metallic hop note.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Far too biased towards the hops for my taste, nonetheless, replendent with the quality and craftsmanship that Real Ale is noted for.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at HEB in Texas in April, 2013 for $8.99/six-pack.

Chilled 12 oz. longneck into a shaker pint. Bottling date 8.7.13.

Look- Medium amber with an orange hue. Thick, creamy off-white head. Good retention, very nice lacing.

Smell- Surprisingly herbal, dark rye bread, a little fusel. Nutty, dark fruit.

Taste- Like the nose, very hoppy for an alt. Nonetheless, very tasty and malt-driven. Nutty, full toasty flavor throughout with some golden raisin. Herbal bittering pushes through after the sip, finishing with a dry honeyed biscuit and peppermint-black tea.

Mouthfeel- Smooth, full, almost creamy. Moderate carbonation. Chalky finish, very clean. Trace of booziness, feels fitting.

Overall- Definitely in the sticke category, but more assertive than you'd expect with the hops. Style- meh, but it's pretty darn good. I'd like to see more like this on the Texas market.
