12 oz. bottle poured into "craft beer glass" (wide-mouthed stick)
[no dating on bottle; drank on 12/4/13]

L: dull murky brown that turns orange-amber up to light; minimal head of caramel foam that dissipates quickly; lots of floaties that turn it opaque

S: caramel; sweet sugary malt ... vanilla

T: caramel ... perhaps an older malty mess, very sweet but you can taste the alcohol

F: solid all around, good carbonation

O: if somebody told me this was an American imperial IPA, I'd have believed them. it seems to follow none of the altbier's textbook characteristics other than it's definitely a malt-forward beer -- but here the malt seems very mangled up and messy. it's possible I had this particular bottle well past it's prime

From my tasting notes: The Gravel Road was a deep reddish amber color that’s not too heavy despite its 7% alcohol content. I tasted a malty sweetness and slight caramel as well. It went down fast and easy and was a good introduction to Rahr & Sons. Not a great Alt but not bad either.

Bought in a pick 6 from Central Market.
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.
(Review from notes)

A - Dark red/brown, thin white head, good retention.

S - Sweet and roasty smell.

T - Roasted hops is the dominate flavor, but it's not overly hoppy.

M - Smooth and thin, hoppy.

Summary - Very nice Altbier. This is becoming one of my favorite beer types.
