"Alt" in German means "old" and when used in connection with beer the implication is that the beer is of a type that pre-dates the pale, bottom-fermented styles most commonly found in Germany today. "Alt" as a beer style in and of itself generally refers to amber-colored top-fermented ales associated with the city of Dusseldorf and its environs. A typical Altbier is light to medium in body and sports lots of hop character. Baird New World Alt is brewed with German Pils and Vienna base malts while deriving its copper color and body from additions of both Caramel and Chocolate Wheat malts. 40 BUs of Horizon, Perle, Vanguard and Sterling hops punctuate the flavor experience from start to finish.

Deep amber pour with a tan head. Very heavy biscuit malt aroma along with some fresh fruit, and slight hops. Medium bodied. Flavor is more enjoyable than the aroma. Fruits, light hops, and a strong biscuit malt backbone. Finish is light bitterness. Tasty, but has some room for improvement. (Draught at Nakameguro Taproom)

KyotoLefty (9304) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2008
Bottle. Dark amber/red color with a good sized off-white head. Decent caramel malt flavor, with slight hopping. Slight earthy, but also a good amount of sweetness. Rich malt flavor, with caramel, dark fruits, earth, and reasonably good hopping. Sweetness balanced well with roasty flavor and hops. Dry, hoppy finish is a surprise. A good alt.
