Nice altbier. I lived near Dusseldorf for 1 year and am a fan of altbier. There is nothing extraordinary about this altbier yet it is a solid reproduction of the style. As someone who has live a long time in Germany and tried many of the German styles of beer I am often disappointed in the attempts at various German styles from foreign breweries. This might not win any awards for best altbier in Germany but everyone would think it is a good standard altbier and would not be identified as a foreign attempt either. With so many failures in Canada and elsewhere to brew a particular style of German beer one has to respect a successful attempt.

Pours a rich clear copper colour, with a huge frothy head. Aroma notes include grains, caramel, some citrus notes. Tasting notes include caramel, toffee, nutty creaminess, and a slight bitterness. This is a wonderful beer! Very drinkable, and great for watching hockey games with!!

Clear copper pour, white head. Aroma is toasty, caramel, subtle cherry. Taste is really malty, caramel but still crisp. Palate is medium bodied but still quite refreshing. Really good alt.

Belle grosse bouteille achetée en Ontario par mon ami Pat. Bière ambrée foncée avec une mousse beige. Le nez est frais avec du caramel et des malts grillés. Le houblon est bien présent. La bouche a un corps moyen, le caramel semble livrer un combat aux houblons qui terminent à égalité. Un produit facile à boire mais agréable.

Bouteille 600ml. De couleur ambrée foncée et claire. Nez de grains de malt aux notes grillées, moyen de houblon herbeux et légèrement floral avec des notes de pain grillé, et quelques traces de fruits (raisins), de caramel et de biscuits. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux notes huileuses. Goût de grains de malt très légèrement rôtis accompagné de faibles traces de fumée (tabac) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un léger goût de pain grillé avec des notes de biscuits et des traces de caramel. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve une légère amertume assez asséchante de houblon herbeux, légèrement floral et aux petites traces terreuses. Post-goût moyen et plutôt sec, léger-moyen amer de houblon herbeux aux notes florales.

Crisp hop aroma with a touch of sweet malt. Medium hop bite with some malt balance. Nice and easy.

On tap @ Wellington Gastropub Ottawa. Pours a clear amber that leans towards a ruby red. Small white head. Aroma is a biscuity caramel malt with some notes of ripe berry. Taste is rich biscuity malt with a delicate hint of sweetness. Nicely balanced with a dry subtle bitterness. Mouthfeel is rich and almost crunchy with a nice round impact on the palate. Moderate carbonation. This is a great beer. The only thing I would improve is to curtail some of the bitter/alcohol finish.
