BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.30%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Just cause it's dark and German doesn't mean it's an alt. Based on the obscure Kottbusser style of beer, this surprisingly dry beer retains all the aroma and nuance of honey (from bees) and molasses (not from bees) creating a perception of sweetness through cool, controlled fermentation. Because we're sweet enough damn it.

Also sampled last night on 9/4/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a small flute glass.

This 'Altbier' (Old beer) style brew pours a deep mahogany in color with some ruby highlights. A very thin off-white is seen. More lacing seen than I did expect after the thin head. Very pleasant aroma of roasted and chocolate malts with a hint of honey and molasses also with more so in the taste. Great taste and goes down very easy. Medium carbonation as well as medium bodied. Overall, a different tasty brew.

Pours a two finger white head that vanishes leaving no lace. Deep brown opaque color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Not much of a nose maybe some honey and flavor is mild malts and hints of honey. $3.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, Ma.
