COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Wedding Alt is patterned after the alt beer from Düsseldorf, Germany. It has a subtle hop aroma from dry-hopping and a clean, light taste. The crisp dryness is derived largely from the use of Munich malts in the grist. Caramel and chocolate malts were also used. It's designed as a mild beer and should go well with almost any food.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2013 Draft on Monocacy Brewery tour. Sample in small glass, dark copper color with off-white head. Aroma of caramel sweetness and spices. Taste adds some surprising citrus hop notes and some nuttiness. Medium body yet light tasting. Interesting.

Always looking for a new take on a favorite style, I was happy to try this on tap AND later in a bottle. This Alt wasn’t quite what I expected, but I liked it. A tiny bit lighter in color than your typical German Alt (slightly opaque amber--looked just like the Oktoberfest others at my table were having, though the head was a bit more tan) and the same malty freshness in the nose and in the taste. Some hops in the aftertaste--a somewhat pronounced bitterness that really rounded the flavor nicely. Excellent and very drinkable. Almost like being in Dusseldorf. Then I just found this in a bottle and tried it again. I enjoyed it even more. Same quality flavor profile, a bit darker color and a bit lighter body than I remember (both good traits) but equally good. I hope they keep bottling because I’ll keep buying. Those fancy little flip top bottles of Uerige I’ve been buying are expensive.

rich gold, large bubbled thin white ring. Papery nose, salt with sea water reminiscent of oysters. Flavor equally salty, light dough mid before a grainy wash finish, hints of honey throughout. Thin body glides over palate. Decent if the sea notes are odd.

eaglefan538 (2828) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle at the brewpub. Poured an orange color, weak head, weak lacing. Aroma of nuts. Flavor followed with not enough depth in malts or hops especially to do the style justice. Just call your beer an amber and quit the alt moniker nonsene. Mouthfeel weak.
