BEER INFO

Brewed by:

New Hampshire, United States

Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is traditional style of altbeir from Düsseldorf, Germany. Alt literally means old in German. Staying as true to the recipe as possible, the Headwall Alt is brewed using German malts, plus German and American hops. Like the Pale Ale, the Headwall Alt is cold conditioned, dry-hopped and krausened in the bottle or keg. Similar to the Pale Ale, the process takes about 30 days.

(12 oz bottle)
look; copper amber with a nice foamy 1" head that eventually reduces to a 1/8" covering, soapy lacing.
smell; caramel, malt, biscuit, a little roastiness, a kiss of noble hops?
taste; see smell, basically no surprises, subtle, tasty, well balanced alt
feel; smooth, creamy, a little light, mild carbonation.
overall; a really nice easy alt. nothing outstanding but in such a good way. balance...
