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!

Bomber from my old shipmate Ric. Clear copper with a thin off white head. Nice malty slightly nutty nose, a touch of herbal hoppiness. Smooth with decent carbonation, lightly bitter earth over mild caramel. Damn tasty. Finishes rather cleanly.

2 ounce can. Pours a clear copper colour with a small head of foam that shrinks quickly but not entirely. Lacing is pretty good. It smells pretty hoppy but underneath, I get a notable aroma of caramel malt. Taste wise, it’s pretty much 50-50 with the sweet vs the bitter. Except in the finish where it is decidedly bitter. The sweet isn’t all that sweet either. More of a semi sweet flavour that I would usually associate with something like molasses. There’s also a hint or 2 of onion or something vegetal, like what you get in some of the IPAs. A bit distracting that is. Good mouthfeel. Interesting brew.

zoucrew102 (1013) - - JUL 10, 2015
Can. Floral, grassy aroma with caramel and some hops. Pours reddish-amber colored with a large tan head, dispersing quickly, as well as decent retention and some lacing. Starts with floral/grassy notes with a bit of caramel. Finishes dry but fairly smooth with piney hop bitterness sticking to the palate afterward. Drinkable brew, not bad.

P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, O- Quite malty and lots of spice. I was expecting some nuttiness to it but not was present and instead there was a hint of banana. Middle of the road beer. Looks like sewage water too.

Block (1829) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2014
I had this one in a cool can along the side of the last stage of the 2014 US Pro Challenge going over lookout Mountain. It was a good beer to have with a turkey sandwich on a hot day.

BMMillsy (1787) - Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Can at Euclid hall. Pours red colored with a one finger white to off white head. Aroma is floral with some nice fruits coming through. Flavor follows this closely with a crisp hop finish it seems, very floral notes, and some fruits galore going on here. Light bodied and goes down very easy. Not really in the Altbier traditional style, but a pretty decent beer bordering on the session ale side.

Bottle poured a slightly hazed brown hue w/ a big frothy tan head diminishing to a thin cap. Moderate roast aromas. Initial flavor light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are pine, toast, caramel, and grass. Medium bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
