When our brewers decided to craft our first ever ale, they wanted it to be extraordinary. They chose one of the oldest and rarest ale styles in the world, a Dusseldorf-style altbier or "old beer". To honour the authenticity of this rare beer style, we collaborated with Zum Schlussel, a brewing institution in Dusseldorf for over 160 years and one of four original breweries known for this style. Not only did they share their vast knowledge of making an altbier but they also shared their special strain of yeast with us. True to style, the result is a dark mahogany hued beer with roasted nutty malt flavour and an intensifying hop finish.

Light clear russet brown. Densish fluffy off white head. Malty. Sweet. A bit simple. Ok.

C’est une bière rousse, un peu rougeoyante mais surtout cuivrée, limpide et demie mince, avec une courte tête de mousse érable. Le nez est de noisettes, de caramel. En bouche, les houblons dominent comme il se doit, stridence assez constante qui vient couper le sucre. Les saveurs se portent plutôt du côté du sucre brun avec un brin de pamplemousse. Une agréable offrande qui correspond bien au style.

Canned. Aroma of yeast, the body is weak and the flavor is light. Overall a weak beer.

Pours deep red amber with a nice pillowy off white sudsy head. I’d give it a 5 for appearance... but it’s filtered. Nose of caramelized bread pans... yeast...even a little whiff of smoke and mild berry. Initially came across as a bit sweet, but it’s passable. Clean bready malts, with hints of smoke, cocoa, dried cherry, and some minerals. Hops are quite mild. Earth and tea tannins. Cut dried grass. It’s an altbier but it doesn’t taste like they would make it in the past. Too refined. It’s good though.

341ml bottle stolen from my step-dad (thanks!) Pour is mahogany. Caramel, roasted grain and nuts, hay, mineral water. There's a faint spicy hop presence, a crisp, bitter finish, but I give this a passing grade mostly for being unremarkably drinkable. I'm with Tiki below: I don't mind these guys, but their product line could use some diversity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Olfactif discret composé de noisettes, de grains, d’une touche de beurre et d’herbes fraiches. De couleur ambrée très foncée, presque brune, elle développe une mousse épaisse, dense et persistante. En entrée de bouche, les noisettes dominent, laissant par la suite l’effervescence s’activer et s’étaler jusqu’à la finale d’intenses notes herbacées aux tons de persil et d’herbes amères. Équilibrée et délicate, cette bière est tout à fait dans le style.. Une vrai bière de soif.

Can, Mulmur, ON, Canada via LCBO iced tea appearance. Thin head. Metallic caramel aroma. Sweet, some sharpness. Not really for me.

Another sad visit to my local LCBO & the only thing I haven’t tried is this CreeMolsonCoors offering. It’s decent & nice -- like a visit to granny’s house! -- & i like it fine enough: sparkling mouthfeel & crisp finish make this enjoyable. Still, im not a big fan of their heavy spring water & honestly don’t find a lot of nuance & diversity in their stable.
