Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.25%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our German style Alt has a brilliant amber hue, and silky smooth medium body. Its light tan head is thick, retaining, and laces the glass all the way down. A Noble hop aroma up front finishes with a caramel malt nose. Our old world brewing method brings out a light toasted-bread flavor you’ll want to savor again and again. It’s a mouthwatering, thirst quenching delight.

Pours a dark amber, with a fine half inch frothy head and great lacing. Scents of sugar cookies, grass, balsamic vinegar, and molasses. Definitely an odd scent profile. Taste has notes of soy, malt, and a touch of molasses. Very different taste from the nose, not really much there. Mouthfeel is very light, some fine carbonation, but overall an incredibly easy drinking beer, almost too easy. Perhaps I got a bad bottle, but I felt this was really lacking substance.

Pours a beautiful, medium dark, hazy, mahogany-brown. Two inch, tan, creamy, persistent head forms. Restrained nose. Where are the aromatic hops? Medium-full body. Sweet malt, caramel, and toffee on the palate. Almost too sweet - would like some bitter contrast. Nice Belgian lace. Extended lingering with hints of whole-grain bread. It is a filling and thirst-quenching ale.
