Our latest alt beer has a deep chestnut-red color, a medium body, and a delicate hop finish. An extended period of cold conditioning makes for a smooth, clean, less fruity character. Dry hopped with American cascade and Columbus hops.

Dark red color, not much head to speak of due to an overpour. Aromas of noble hops with a little more citrus to them shine through some nice sweet dark fruit aromas. All this with yeasty undertones. Full of plum flavor (probably from some darker German malts mixing it up with the yeast), this one gets off to a malty sweet start and finishes up crisp and hoppy, with a touch of citrus and grass. This reminded me of a really good sticke alt, moreso than this breweries version of a sticke. Very nice alt.
