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.

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.

12 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel, toffee, faint raisins and nuts and herbal hops. The taste is toasty and nutty with toffee and floral hops. Medium bodied. Nice alt.

radagast83 (4563) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Draft at brewpub. Poured a mostly clear dark copper color with an off-white head. Aroma was caramel notes, some sweet toasted, nutty malts. Flavor was a touch of light citrus notes, earthy notes, nut character. Liked.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2006
Growler... Clear, deep amber lager with a large, frothy, cream-colored head. Toasted caramel, praline and bread in the aroma. The flavor is all toasted caramel and bread with herbal hops. Good balance. A tad thin. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel with gentle carbonation. Finishes crisp and clean.

Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 10/25/12

Aroma: The nose is fairly malty, with some caramel, nuts, a light grass, and some earth
Appearance: It pours an amber-ruby-orange color, there’s a beige head, and a little lace
Flavor: The taste leans nutty and a little sweet, with caramel, and some grassy and earthy undertones
Palate: The body is medium, it has a soft carbonation, a smooth mouthfeel, and lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a really solid beer. I didn’t really get a lot of the spice described on the bottle, it felt more nutty to me, but otherwise, I think Brewer’s Art hit right on what they were trying to make. Also, this is the first beer I’ve had that was brewed for someone’s wedding since NickD717’s "Something Borrowed Something Brewed," so there’s that...

Derek881 (1006) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Sampled at the brewery, in a pint glass one night and from a tower another. The aroma was not heavy, but pleasant, featuring mostly malty caramel notes, with some underlying earthy hops. It had a clear, copper-amber color with a moderately sized, foamy white head. Good flavor, mostly sweet and crisp, with a mix of bitterness. Did well on the palate with a subtle, fizzy carbonation, but was somewhat thin and a bit dry. Overall it was a good seasonal option and fun to try.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Growler-Poured a cloudy amber color w/a slight head & a few "floaters" in the brew. This beer was kind of hard to pin down, had some hop flavor up front, a little more than I expected from this style, but it was still a smooth, easy drinking brew. Had traces of caramel, but not quite as much malt as I expected. Had a dry, crisp finish; kind of thin. Not a bad brew overall, a definite session brew.

Bottle from State Line. Pours translucent deep copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is vienna/Munich malty, with notes of nuts, mild hops, and earth. Tastes nutty, with caramel malt in the finish, some late cacao, and a mild finish.
