COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a sticke, the secret alternative to a German Alt. This beautiful German style stands out from the crowd with mahogany colored body and a creamy off-white head. The aromas sing of burnt sugar, bread crust, and rose water. The flavor of this beer has sweet notes of biscuit malts and Buchholz. With all it’s sweetness, this beer finishes as dry and bitter as a German comedy.

tap - Pours amber with an off-white head. The aroma is mainly sweet caramel malt. It tastes of caramel and spice with a moderate bitterness and a dry finish. Bubbly and medium bodied, it’s pretty good.

Tap at Oasis. Burgundy amber-brown body. Not much of a head. Bigger, maltier than a typical Alt, think Sticke Alt. OK.

deyholla (7003) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2013
On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear deep amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bread and grain with a touch of toffee and biscuit. Flavor starts sweet with toffee and grains then mellows to a bit of a bready finish.

On draft in Bloomington (IN)
A respectable beer from Left Hand is enjoyable although after a few minutes it gets boring. Four ounces is enough to get a handle on a flavorful beer that is average for the folks in Longmont.

Aroma / Appearance - The deep ruby red base soaks up the light. A wispy ochre head hangs on for dear life. Malt, maple, woody oak, and a few other things lurk in the background. Nothing is memorable after a while.

Flavor / Palate - Sweet caramel, malt,and the sticky taste of black cherries dipped in a bit of sugar warm the throat. The warm alcoholic finish is a mixture of malts and Twix. If toned down it would be more enjoyable. Hopefully the next entry in the series improves on this release.
