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

Modest finger’s worth of light tan foam, even surface, below average retention, meager lacing. The liquid is bright and shiny in spite of a slight silty film, brown in hue with an orange tint, only a few random sluggish bubbles visible. Sweet grains, cocoa, malt and a cleansing mineral water and earthiness to it, interesting blend of apricot, apple, plum to cherry fruit scents, moderate staying power. Light to medium-bodied, tight carbonated tingle, here the mineral water aspect stronger although that cocoa, caramel malt makes a good showing through the mouth entry. Bready, if not doughy, as it unfolds with a light nuttiness and peach, apricot, yellow apple fruit. Perks up some through the finish and certainly not overly sweet, just too demure for its own good.

This is an interesting interpretation of the Alt. It clearly has the malty and fruitiness of an ale, but there is something clean about it. Maybe it is all that carbonation that, for me, detracts from the fruit. Hops seem to balance the sweet .
Roger Probst selected this Amber Alt as among the "300 More Beers To Try Before You Die." And you know what, you will be better off taking his advice.

Pours dark amber with a slight haze under a 2” cream colored head. There is bread and a little light fruit on the nose and palate. A little bit of the alt character. Medium carbonation, medium body.

Pours a copper red color with a thin creamy head. Smell is not overly active, but can smell the malts. Extremely smooth finish in which Carmel, malts, nuttiness and slight hop comes together very well. Nothing overbearing. Very drinkable. I could drink many of these.
