look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a snifter. Purchased at the brewery

A- pours a hazy amber body with a big frothy off white head that reduces slowly to leave thick lacing. Very nice looking

S- very nutty, with some toffee and bready ness.

T- huge nutty notes, followed by some diacetyl butter scotch flavors. The follow through has toffee and biscuity notes. Finish slightly bitter

M- medium mouthfeel and carbonation

Decent overall .. Worth the small price tag

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a stange.

A: Dark golden hue, lots of effervescence, pours about a half finger bubbly white head. Dissipates pretty quickly. Fair spotty lacing.

S: Pecans, walnuts, maple syrup, and bubble gum.

T: Bitter roasted pecan shells.

M: Light body with an earthy quality and a shallow finish and a synthetically sweetness.

D: Sessionable.

Atmosphere okay. Slight head, plenty of effervescence, and some fair lacing. Nose is nutty, maple-y, and a synthetic sweetness. Bitter nut shells. Overall, this is an okay quaff.

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

A: Pours a crystal clear medium amber in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some peach + golden yellow highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall foamy light beige head that reduces to a small patch of very thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of earthy yeast, floral hops, and toffee sweet malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly sweet toffee malts with a moderate amount of earthy yeast. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of floral hops which impart a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly crisp with some hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Definitely one of the hoppiest altbiers that I have ever experienced and different than the ones I had in Düsseldorf. I found it to be an Americanized version of the style and enjoyable. Pretty easy to drink.

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

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellowish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high dense light beige head that gradually died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of floral hops are present in the nose along with some slight hints of citrus.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that it isn't nearly as hoppy and there are notes of earthy yeast and hints of caramel from the underlying malts. The hops also contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and slightly crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The hops leave your mouth with a little dryness in the finish.
O: This beer definitely tastes like an American-influenced version of an altbier as it's a little more hoppier compared to the types of beers brewed in Düsseldorf.
