COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alt-bier originates from Dusseldorf, and is the German version of a pale ale, with deep amber color and a very malty flavor. Brewed with German malts to provide its signature rich toasted malt flavor, it is lightly hopped with German & American hops.

(Draught) I had this one at the Salem Beer Works. Probably the best tasting brew I have had from the Beer Works.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 7, 2011
A: The pour is amber in color with a finger of off-white head. S: Smells of sweet malt with toasted malt and toffee. There is a bit of grape flavor and sweetness. A light flavor of yeast as well as a very slight nuttiness. Maybe a little bit of floral hop aroma. T: A nice toasted malt and toffee flavor. There’s some nutty flavors as well as some mild fruit flavors. It’s sort of bitter for an altbier. As with the aroma, there are some grape flavors. M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. O: Sort of a weird aroma and flavor to this. Wasn’t the hugest fan, but not bad.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 11, 2009
A deep red copper ale with a thin light moka head. A pleasant plum aroma, with light vinous notes, and fresh grains. In mouth, nice caramel malt with light German hops, nutty and mineral notes. On tap at Fenway brewpub, Oct. 12 2008.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2006
Deep brown-amber beer with a thick white head. Aroma is quite interesting, minerally with a herbal hop character. A bit of light smokiness as well. Faint cherry and toast and also an earthy resinousness in the nose. Flavour is a bit more straightforward. Cherry fruit, bracing minerally dryness and a faint hint of smoke again. Flavour is well-balanced by noble/herbal hop character. Moderate bitterness with light toast and sweet berryish esters throughout.

chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2009
On tap at Fenway location, 7 October 2009. Nice dark chestnut colour. Diminishing off white head. Caramel/toffee aroma. More of the same in the flavour. Just a twist of hop bite. Some residual sweetness. A little too much for me.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2007
Draught at brewpub. Clear copper body with a small off-white head. Very basic harmless caramelized malts. Flavours of all-bran cereals mixed with breakfast berries jam and some wood. Woody hops with almost no bitterness. Short finish leaving only light fruity after-taste. Nothing offensive with it, just very basic and not very tasty. I usually find Altbiers to be very fine session beers but this Beer Works is a beer that needs more work.

notalush (4910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Tap at the Canal Street location - a very nice Alt - dark red with a slight brown tint, and a fabulous, foamy head - just a mild sweetness on it, with a very pleasant dry character, which is great, since so many alts tend to lean toward the sweet end of the spectrum these days - lingering toasty/roasty, crisp bitterness - I like.
