Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Spring

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.

A nice dark amber colored beer. There is a good amount of pine and grass on the nose from the hops. Caramel and bread with just a little citrus on the palate, the malt adds a nice backbone to this ale. There is also some yeast present as well.
