Notes/Commercial Description:
This is traditional style of altbeir from Düsseldorf, Germany. Alt literally means old in German. Staying as true to the recipe as possible, the Headwall Alt is brewed using German malts, plus German and American hops. Like the Pale Ale, the Headwall Alt is cold conditioned, dry-hopped and krausened in the bottle or keg. Similar to the Pale Ale, the process takes about 30 days.

On-tap. Pours a lighter brown color. Tan head. Smells malty and Germanic. Flavor is yeasty with dark grain, dark bread and caramel. I enjoy the Altbier style and this one seems to fit right in line, although my experience with the style is mild at best. I loved its light body. One of the first craft beers I have ever tried but had it again and it sparked some nostalgia.
