Freigeist is the experimental offshoot of Cologne’s revolutionary small brewery, Braustelle. Here we strive to break the chains of industrial brewing by reviving and update Germany’s unique, historical beer styles. Unfiltered Altbier, brewed as a tribute to the part of town where our brewpub Braustelle is located. Brewed and bottled by Freigeist Bierkultur @ Brauerei Göller

Zlotta (1795) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2016
0.5 l bottle as ’Freigeist Ehrenfelder Alt’ from ’REWE Budnik & Homberg’ (28 March 2016). Clear, dark red with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, tan to white head. Musty, sweetish and slightly roasty aroma of cardboard, caramel and nuts. Sweetish, slightly roasty taste of caramel, nuts, some bread and chocolate, followed by a short, slightly roasty-bitter finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Decent, might be better fresh.
