Default Altbier Label





I'm still on the fence with the colors.
Thoughts? Suggestions?

It looks like a tombstone, anyway to get less greenish tint in the gray? A slight bit of blue in the gray might accentuate the tombstone look. Maybe even a toned down grainy layer with a lot of opacity to it, unless you want to stick with the bold of the solid color.
nice

Great work as usual, but not nearly as eye-catching as your last ones. And maybe that's good, helps keep you from pidgeonholing yourself.

Nice. Reckon it would look spot on if you changed the colour of 'Altbier' to make it really stand out, otherwise everything just kinda blends together.

Spiffy as usual, but it does have a certain graveyard quality.

A tombstone? Hmm...maybe I'll brighten up the colors a bit, and make the "altbier" text stand out a bit more.
Thanks for the suggestions!
