BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ninkasi Brewing Company
Oregon, United States
ninkasibrewing.com

Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Called 'Dark Double Alt' on the label.

Seize the season with Sleigh'r. Layers of deeply toasted malt are balanced by just enough hop bitterness to make it deceivingly drinkable. Paired with a dry finish, Sleigh’r is anything but your typical winter brew.

An Alt ferments with Ale yeast at colder lagering temperatures. This effect gives Alts a more refined, crisp lager-like flavor than traditional ales. The Alt has been “Ninkasified” raising the ABV and IBUs. Sleigh'r has a deep, toasted malt flavor that finishes dry and balanced.

22 oz. bomber,

A: Pours a deep red with a medium white head, good lace.

S: Cracked wheat and bread, pumpernickel, roast, and toast.

T: Lots of crystal malt, toast. Piney hop finish, definitely an Americanized big altbier, tastes like an Imperial Red almost. A bit unpleasantly bitter at the end.

M: Medium-bodied, but a chalky finish, has a bit of a carbonic acid feel which I not a huge fan of.

D: It's OK, very inexpensive for the bomber ($3.50) which helps, just wish there was something more to it.
