COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Alt Together Now” is a 5%-ABV Altbier, which means it’s a brown ale fashioned after the smooth, delicate top-fermenting beers made in Germany for hundreds of years before cold-temperature lagering became the norm (thanks to Bavarian brewing laws and the invention of refrigeration). The Altbier style, which literally translates to “old beer,” is associated with the Düsseldorf area of Northern Germany, and ordering “ein bier” there still gets you an Alt instead of the usual Pilsner.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2010
A dark reddish amberalt with almost no head (cask). In aroma, rather sweet candy, cinnamon hearts, a tad cloying. In mouth, a rather lifeless light malt with faint wooden notes, rather boring and missing the point...an alt on oaks....On tap at ChurchKey DC, Sept. 18 2010.

Draft at Churchkey. I’m basing the review from the order the bartender said the beers were, so I’m assuming they didn’t get the beers mixed up with the other two versions. This poured a clear copper color, small white head. Aroma was sweet, almost candy like. Flavor was a touch roasted, sweet malts, tinge of bitter hop finish.

sebletitje (6784) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2010
cask draft @ Paradiso, DC. Collaboration ale, pours light copper, off-white head. aroma, lightly yeasty, notes of caramel malts, dark fruits. flavors, thin body, malty and grainy, touch of caramel, some floral hops,low carbonation (even for a cask), lingering bitter pilsner/dark crystal malts. Didn’t pick much of estery profile of the style, even the malt profile was lacking any character.

Travlr (12286) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso. Apparently there are 3 versions of this one, each brewed separately (although to the same recipe) at Chophouse, Gordon Biersch and Capitol City. Cask. Clear amber color, thick but small off white head. Aroma of taffy. Taste is scotch, bitter. Thin body. Average.
