Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.00%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
This Altbier is brewed in the traditional German old or "alt" style. Full bodied with a malty richness and deep copper color derived from Victory malt and carries a delicate hop aroma. Before lager beer was made (1830's) in Germany, the style was Obergoriger Lageredbier, which means " top-fermented lagered beer". When Western Europe embraced the lager yeast in the middle of the 19th century, Dusseldorf decided to keep brewing their top-fermented beer. Altbier is thus an ale that is aged (lagered) like a lager. Altbier offers a smooth, rounded alternative to sharp, bitter Pilsners.

I believe this won something at the GABF.

Pours a nice amber color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger creamy off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, slightly hoppy, with some caramel. The taste is malty, slightly sweet/bitter, with some caramel. Medium body. Drinkable, a nice little beer.
