COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Altbiers are one of the few ales brewed in Germany. Sticke (secret) altbiers probably originated as an altbier in which too much malt was assed (thus the secret). Cold lagering mellows out the fruitiness characteristic of most ales resulting in a clean maltiness and a spicy bitterness from German Tettnang hops.

CanIHave4Beers (3134) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Pours a ruby to copper color with a medium head and good lace. The aroma is mildly floral with a kind of sweetness in the nose and a mild but somewhat grainy character. Flavor has a good malty sweetness at first then it is dry and roasty in the finish. This has a nice defined hop character and some good caramel and spicy undertones.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Tap at the Philly location: Slightly hazy amber with a dense creamy lacing off white head. Sweet malty aroma with light fruity notes- some pastry character. Creamy body with a sweet fore flavor- some caramelized German malts- a bit toffeeish. Fairly clean as well with a very solid and long tettnang peppery bitter finish. Pretty solid.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Sampler at the Philly brewery. Malt accentuated with some spicy hop notes in the aroma. Clear pale amber brown. Lightly malty in flavor with a touch of fruitiness. Finish is dry and moderately bitter.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Tap at Philly. Pours a nice deep woody amber with a nice long lasting slightly off white head and killer lacing. Aroma is sharp toasted malts, caramel, earth, some leather, greenish hops, light tea and good toffee backbone. Flavor is upfront nutty, sharp toasted malts, caramel, and good sweetness, some leather and charred malts, light harshness comes through, some leafy hops, and a mostly clean yet somewhat roasty sharp finish. Pretty solid though.

keepersj12 (2627) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Like a Pilsner gone mad. On tap in Philly. Nice amber pour with a big fluffy head. Aroma was malty sweet with a bit of bitterness. Flavor was a Pilsner with a malt backbone. Nice and sweet up front with a very bitter finish. Very good for the hot weather.
