"I swear by my beer and my love of it that I will never live for the sake of another man’s beer, nor ask another man to live for mine." The name Altbier, which literally means old (style) beer, refers to the pre-lager brewing method of using a warm top-fermenting yeast Over time the Alt yeast adjusted to lower temperatures, and the Alt brewers would store or lager the beer after fermentation, leading to a cleaner, crisper beer than is the norm for some other top-fermented beers such as British pale or mild ales.

Deep copper with a n average sized head. The aroma is light malt and hops. The flavor is well balanced with a dry finish that follows the aroma.

Not my favorite beer at the terminal but still very enjoyable. Good for an altbeer too.

Draft. Pours amber orange with a off white head. Toasty malty and bready aroma. The flavor has toasted malts, some light roasty malts, some bready light sweetness, and light floral hops. Pretty good.

This poured a murky brown color with a light beige head. The aroma contained some nuttiness and caramel. The flavor was malty but nothing to write home about just to Ratebeer about. The palate was a bit thin. Waaah Waaah Waaah ok but they do much better.

On tap at Terminal. Poured hazy medium brown with a light cap of white head. The aroma picked up nutty and caramel malts with touches of citrus and earthy hops around.. a bit of and edge to it, which I enjoyed. Very malty in the flavor department with nutty notes and brown sugar leading.. some malt-inspired sourness and light bitterness around.. dry, lightly-toasted malty finish. Medium-bodied and rather dry on the palate despite the malt bill.. flowed OK, and went down quickly.

decaturstevo (5850) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Brown pour with off white head and lace. Aroma of coffee, hint of brown sugar. Flavor slight roasted malt flavor with earthy hops and a decent bitter. Thin and watery but a good beer.

From a growler thanks to lithy. First of all, bonus point for the name. This was actually really good. Nice aroma - coffee, and some earthy, woodsy notes, as well. Woodsy, earthy flavors mixed with a little coffee and burnt toast. Nice flavor of piney hops in the finish.
