Notes/Commercial Description:
(512) ALT is a German-style amber ale that is fermented cooler than typical ales and cold conditioned like a lager. ALT means “old” in German and refers to a beer style made using ale yeast after many German brewers had switched to newly discovered lager yeast. This ale has a very smooth, yet pronounced, hop bitterness with a malty backbone and a characteristic German yeast character. Made with 98% Organic 2-row and Munich malts and US noble hops.

On tap at Flying Saucer in Sugar Land, Texas.

This beer just isn't nearly as good as their excellent Pecan Porter. Of course I tend to like Porters a lot anyway.

This was very mild with a touch of bitterness. It just didn't do anything for me. I doubt I'll try it again.
