COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dusseldorf-Style Altbier. Our Amber ale is a wonderful compromise between the light and refreshing, and dark and full-flavored beers available today. Our Amber is clean, and like our Blonde ale, exhibits a crisp, lager-like character. The firm bitterness is balanced by the sweet, caramel and nutty malt character provided by the generous use of Munich, Vienna, and Pilsner malts. 43 IBU

Draught at Ginger Man, NYC. Golden/amber beer with a small offwhite head. Malty toffee aroma, fruity, roasted, some hay. Malty vinous flavor, fruity, grapes, hay some spices. A bit thin.

annunz123 (873) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Nuts, caramel, and pine hops in the aroma. Taste starts sweet and nutty, with a pretty heavy pine bitterness in the finish. Pretty heavy taste and finish for a 5% beer. OK, but not great.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2012
A clear amber colored beer, with an off white head. The aroma of sweet a little caramel and fruits with hop notes. The taste of sweet fruit, with some caramel and hints of bitter hop. The aftertaste is a little sweet moving to a little bitter.

Finhead (1200) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2012
A reddish-brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is caramel malt with pine. It has a medium body with crisp texture and lively carbonation. I like the bittersweet taste with a dry finish.

Sample at the brewery. It is a good altbier. Overly hopped but in a good way. Unexpectedly good.

stevoj (2292) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 22, 2012
A good rendition of the Dusseldorf altbier style. Nice hoppy bitterness, thick fluffy head, orange/copper color. Pleasant sipper...

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2012
12oz bottle pours a dark copper with a white head. Aromas of malts and toasted bread also awhite touch of cereal. Flavor is balanced with a sweet carmel malt flavor. Body is medium with a doughy finish

JorisPPattyn (8014) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 9, 2012
Draught Good off-white head over hazy amber-gold beer. Malt, lightly coloured malts, green hops (and not EU ones). Sulphur-y. Faint bitterish-toasted flavour. Hops are in evidence, but not really in balance with the main malt flavour. Warming up, sulphur gone, in exchange for nice nutbread flavour. Aftertaste is surprisingly dry-bitterish, some hopoils that are not bad. BIt sticky. Deserving, but still... I think somebody ought to catch the trolley to Düsseldorf, instead of USA-written cookbooks.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAR 10, 2012
Bottle 355 ml
Aroma: fresh crisp clean hop character, some caramel slight nutty notes. Meadow floral hop side.7+
Appearance: proper golden amber look with bright midsized laced cap. Looked quiet appealing.
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: medium bodied. Quiet aggressive hop front for Alt bier . Zesty, leafy with softening malty body. Proper body , light on nutty alt hints. Not 100% on style but it’s getting there with decent malt work. Good textures and carbonation.
