Availability: Year-round

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.

3.28/5  rDev -10.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass, good untill October we good to go!

An appearance of cloudy dull chestnut brown/amber for the color with nce dark orange edges. Head a light tan but does not stick around at all.

Bouquet is small. Mild toasted malt but no yeast bent or anything. Not particularly strong for an altbier.

Taste is long story short, lacking and kind of lifeless. Malt strong sharp presence, but with a very light almost wet body. A nice sort of brown spice (nutmeg/cinammon?) in the finish but brings a stinging feel.

Overall not too bad but feels a little downplayed. The spice angle on this is totally unexpected and a nice touch.
