COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Alt is a much stronger version of the traditional Dusseldorf Altbiers. An ancient style from the Rhineland, Altbiers are ales that were virtually wiped out by German lagers in the 1800’s. We use plenty of European hops and German pilsner malts to brew a remarkably clean beer. We then rest it in the cooler for two months to achieve the mellow finish that is the Überalt’s trademark.

arminjewell (6094) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Pour on tap at Republic, dark reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of sweet caramel, toffee, and sugars, some slight toast, some hints of nuts, dark red ripe fruits as well. Taste is a mix of dark sugars with toffee and caramel, some red fruits, nuts, earth and spice, touch of herbal notes, slight toast, finishing fairly sweet.

12-oz. Thanks, B! Pours a murky dark amber with loose tan head. Big graham cracker and wet grass nose. Creamy medium body with little carb. Graham crackers and wet grass on the mid palate. Maybe a little lettuce in there. Mild toasty crackery finish.

drowland (5981) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2011
10/22/11. 12oz bottle. Hazy amber pour with a small khaki head that fades but sticks. Muted malty aroma with a touch of caramel and something that reminds me of oxidation. Slightly fruity flavor that lingers with chocolate and caramel as well as a bitter, grainy aspect. Not bad.

BVery (5978) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2011
Tap. Brown copper pour with a dissipating white head. Malt bomb anyone - holy cow. Some nut, grain, and caramel in there as well. But this one is all malt.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2011
On draught at the Hanger Room in Willernie, Minnesota. Pours a clear dark copper colored brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of toasted biscuit and semi-dry dark malt with some floral hops. Taste is powdery dark malt, a hint of mild yeast, and floral hops. Finish is slightly dry, yet still smooth with some floral hop aftertaste that quickly disappears.

JK (4376) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Dark brown color. Moderately thick, but short head. No perceivable hop aroma or flavor, this is all malt. Lightly roasted grain with very mild bitternes. Good palate, and a little heavier than some of the other alts I have had. A fine session beer.

nuplastikk (4299) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2013
12oz bottle. Glowing orange-copper color. Thin, creamy white head. Pleasantly true-ish to style, nice toasty brown malt notes. Muted noble hops, faint spiciness in the background. Has some of the nice caramel sweetness if a Sticke, but not quite as refined as an authentic version. Comes off a touch boozy, and yet still a little hollow and one-dimensional as well. An interesting effort.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Chunky caramel orange with a fast fading beige topper. Aroma of toffee, nuts, toasted malt, biscuits and earthy hops. Taste is on the malted side with toffee, nuts, caramel, burnt sugar and a small amount of floral and earthy hops. A little too sweet but overall not bad, sort of like a supercharged brown ale.

wlajwl (3767) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Aroma is fruit, malts and hints of dark bread and nuttiness. The flavor is moderately strong malts, fruit, nutty notes and a slightly sour/dry finish.

Nuffield (3665) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2011
Produces all the range of flavors I’d want here. Big fruity notes, good caramel. Tingling, vibrant palate. True enough to the German. An excellent version.
