As an Alt (top-fermented hybrid beer), this is one of the rarer German styles found in the US. The best taste comparison would be to a brown ale. This one, however, had a much richer flavor than the couple of others that I've had. It had a sugary flavor to it, making it very rich, kind of like those chocolate cakes that are almost too rich to finish in one shot. Nice malty characteristic, which always suits me. Overall, a nice experience, so good thing I bought this in a six pack so that I can grow to enjoy it more.
