Altbier, literally translated as “Old Style” beer, is a classic German ale. BBC Altbier is brewed with additions of Munich, wheat, caramel, and chocolate malts creating a delicate, but flavorful malt profile. This delicious amber colored session beer is balanced with additions of tradtional spicy German hops creating a light and floral bouquet to compliment its complex malt profile.

Consumed on tap at the brewery/restaurant.

Hazy amber/brownish color with a tan head that gives way to decent lacing. Both the smell and tastes are a good combination of malt and floral hops. Very refreshing. The finish is neither dry nor sweet. The mouthfeel is good as is the carbonation level. Overall this is a great beer to have with hot wings (which I did) and with the lower ABV it is an excellent session beer.
