COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pilsner malt and German Munich and Caramunich malts are the backbone of this beer. The rich toasted and bready flavors imparted by the Munich malts are balanced with a sharp but balanced bitterness imparted by the imported German hops. The result is a German Alt-style beer that is both malty and easy drinking. The Virginia Ale is 5% ABV and has approximately 40 IBUs.

Overall, pretty decent, but a bit too meaty malty. 140118
