Light and crisp with an emphasis on the malt. Deep ruby red in color and fermented cool then lagered for 2 months to promote the crispness of the style. We brewed this in the German tradition incorporating a double decoction mash to pull out the intricate flavors of the malt.

On tap at the brewpub in New Brighton. Dark brown, some copper notes - off white nead. Minty, earthy aroma. Flavor has some chocolate notes, a hint of caramel but is slighlty green. Not your usual altbier. Decently thick mouthfeel.

MN Winter Get Together, 2006. Dry, malty aroma with some banana. Reddish amber color with beautiful lace. This is an excellent alt. BJ’s comes through again.

Dark brown color with no head. Simple, malty aroma. Dry malt taste with some hop and something almost salty on the finish. A little tart finish.

Gee,I wonder if the first rater of this works at BJ’s??? I enjoyed this and the nose was malty and even a little farmy- grain action going on. It was very malty on the tongue with very little sweetness to it. A good brew for non-beer lovers to try. Non over the edge in any way.

JCS (4) - New Brighton, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2006 does not count
Avery good alt. True to the commercial description. Served by the glass or growler. A very freindly pub to enjoy a pint in!
