A crisp rendition of the classic ales of Düsseldorf, Eightmile Alt is remarkably smooth and richly copper-hued. This is an ideal session bier, brewed to a gentle strength with one of the cleanest palates you’re likely to find. Lightly hopped and not too sweet, Eightmile Alt is bier for friends sharing the day’s adventures.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a cloudy brown body body with a half a finger white foamy head dissipating within a minute, foamy lacing left in rings. The smell was just like a typical "altbier" - a bland/stale malty cracker-ness, not sure how else to describe it, but honestly the more "altbiers" I have the more they all smell the same. The taste was a bland/stale maltiness all throughout, dry bland malty aftertaste and finish. On the palate, it sat about at a light to medium, fairly sessionable, carbonation is mild, but decent for the style and good to me. Overall, uh...for the most part, just another altbier, nothing special

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately cloudy orange amber color with a small dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, honey, grape, pear, apple, toast, pepper, floral, grass, bread, and yeast earthiness. Ok aromas with decent balance of malt, yeast, and hop notes; with decent strength. Smells aged/slightly stale. Taste of caramel, honey, bread, toast, cracker, floral, pear, apple, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, honey, toast, bread, cracker, floral, pear, apple, grass, and earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice balance of malt, hop, and fruity ester notes; with good flavor robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish; as expected of 4.6%. Overall this is a very solid altbier. No idea on age, but it still had some good balance and flavor robustness; and was very easy to drink. An enjoyable offering.

Bottle from Total Wine Boca Raton, FL. First time I’ve had this style of ale. Pours a very hazy amber color with soft one finger head into an American pint glass. Aroma slightly floral with malts. A little earthy. Taste was mild with malts, light hops, slight floral notes and slightly sweet. Smooth and refreshing. Mouth was mild carbonation with not much aftertaste. Good session beer on a hot day.

This one poured a darker red color with a beige head. Aroma was of toasted malt, light dark fruit, mild herbal hops too. Falvor was a nice blaance between hops, toast, and sweetness. One of the better Alt’s i;ve had.

12 oz bottle: Aroma is got a nice hop texture with some nice malt backing as well. Appearance is a copper/ brownish with a thick off white head that lingers. Taste has got a more pronounced hop note with a very light malt texture in the backing. Overall. Pretty decent. Cheers!

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with long lasting white head. Aroma is of bready malt, sourdough and hint of hops. Body is medium and crisp. Earthy hops, bready and caramel malt, brown sugar and some hops fill the moth. There some off vegetable notes. I would not buy this brew again.

Grain and pecan aroma. Cloudy ochre, medium yellow head, fair lacing. Nutty upfront, finishes with a light caramel sweetness. Sessionable, could use a little more intensity. Nice distinct nuttiness.
