COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A new brew in honor of owners Taylor’s and Mandi’s new son, Evan (and with a winking nod to the Steve Carrell movie filmed around the corner in Crozet). This beer is in the style of a Dusseldorf "sticke altbier" - originating from the North Rhine-Westphalia area of Germany. It is the cousin to Cologne’s Kolschbier, in that they are both termed "obergärige" - top fermented - beers brewed in the alt ("old" or pre-lager beer) style. Alts range from deep gold to dark copper in color and have a firm, hoppy dryness to back up their malty undertones. We’ve created our alt on the deep gold color end of the spectrum, but in the "sticke" (secret) category, that signifies a higher-gravity beer that, in Dusseldorf, is brewed as a reward for local customers and is often not listed on the menu (thus the "secret" part). Evan Altmighty was brewed with Pilsner, Munich, and Caramel Munich malts and hopped with German Hallertau Tradition hops. The same cologne-based strain of ale yeast for fermentation provides light fruit and bready notes and aids in the prolonged cold aging of this ale often treated like a lager after primary fermentation. 30 IBUs, 6.6% ABV.

tomekk1978 (566) - Ząbki, POLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Barwa i piana: pomarańczowa w stronę miedzi, zgaszona. Piana lekko zabarwiona (żółto -biała), zbita, następnie kremowa, obfita i trwała. Ślicznie oblepia szkło. Aromat: słodowy i słodki (głównie tostowy, z lekkim karmelem) oraz nieco chmielowy (ziołowy, przyprawowy) i początkowo owocowy (z czasem się ulatnia). Do tego niewielkie nuty: utlenienia oraz metaliczności i alkoholu. Smak: wyraźna słodowość (tostowo- karmelowa), ale z umiarkowaną słodyczą. Lekki posmak chmielowy, zrównoważony ze słodem, wytrawna końcówka. Balans zachowany, choć odrobinę za dużo alkoholu i pojawiają się nuty owocowe. Goryczka i odczucie w ustach: dosyć wysoka goryczka, lekko drażniąca, ale nie zalegająca. Średnia od krągłej pełnia, umiarkowane do dużego wysycenie i raczej łagodna końcówka, choć alkohol momentami ogrzewa przełyk. Mimo tego piwo jest dosyć pijalne. Amerykańskie piwo w stylu Alt, którego już dawno nie próbowałem. Przyznam, że widząc jego parametry byłem nieco sceptyczny, bowiem alkohol, (a zwłaszcza ekstrakt) okazały się wyższe niż w stylu. Piana jest wspaniała, a barwa byłaby idealna, gdyby nie brzydkie drobinki pływające w szkle. W aromacie przeszkadzają nieco nadmierny alkohol i utlenienie, bowiem lekka metaliczność nie potwierdza się na szczęście w teście skórnym. W smaku również nie byłoby źle gdyby nie wspomniana nuta alkoholowa i owoce. Piłem już zatem ciekawsze alty, jednak amerykanie także zdają się podążać w dobrym kierunku.

rosenbergh (7370) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2014
12 oz bottle. (Shenandoah Hops) Staunton, VA. Clear dark amber colour with a tiny off-white head. Sweet malt... and that's pretty much it... in the aroma. The flavour is an opposite of the flavour. Very plentiful. Dark fruits, sugary and fruity sweetness, malt, strong maltiness and a tiny hint of hoppy bitterness. Very sweet for an... Altbier... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
