Once upon a time in the ancient city of Düsseldorf, monks perfected a style of brewing that used the top-fermenting yeast of an ale and the cold conditioning of a lager. The result was a clean-tasting, full-bodied ale, known as altbier, At Grimm Brothers, we’ve crafted our own version of an altbier from specialty malts and the finest European and American hops. Like its namesake, Little Red Cap is copper-colored and alluringly sweet. But don’t be fooled – there’s some sass hidden under that hood. Big bad wolves beware!

Light hazy copper color, small off-white head. Hoppy, caramel scent. Malty, grainy, bitter taste. Fizzy mouthfeel, high bitterness. Grainy aftertaste.

From the bottle: Nice brilliant amber color with red tones, about an inch of light tan head settles with no lacing. Aromas caramel, toffee, and a bit of fruit like cherry or current. The flavor is sweet and toasty, nice caramel down th middle with some toasty bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with some crisp carbonation. Darker and maltier, in my opinion, than some alts... I likey.

Fresh growler. Looks like everyone else described. Fruity bready and a bit of metal nose. Nice balanced taste, bitter hops, fruity, bloomy and toast. Nice bitter linger. Someone else said it, more breweries should try this style
