The name Altbier, or “old beer,” refers to the pre-lager brewing method of using warm, top-fermenting yeast. As time went on, the Alt yeast eventually adjusted to lower temperatures, and brewers would store – or lager – the beer after fermentation, which they discovered yielded a cleaner, crisper beer. This process soon became the standard for other top-fermented beer styles. A Düsseldorf specialty, Altbier is a moderately dark German-style brown ale that exhibits the dryness of a lager but also boasts pleasant fruity notes. The extended conditioning mellows the fruity characteristics to produce an exceptionally smooth, delicate, and balanced beer.

Pours a deep black with a caramel colored head that lingers for a long time. Smells strongly of roasted malts, also boozy. Taste is similar, very malty taste. Smooth mouthfeel. Great beer!

Served on-tap at the Brewery. A - Pours clear amber orange with a nice one finger tall white head leaving spotty patches of lace down parts of the glass. S - Smells of rich caramel malt, mild noble hops, light fruity esters, toffee and a bit of light spice. Well balanced nose with nothing really standing out. T - Starts off with a quick noble hop bite quickly being enveloped by the strong caramel and toffee malt backbone. Some very light fruitiness and a bit of black pepper spice help round things out. Finish is bittersweet quickly fading away, leaving the palate dried long after the finish. M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, rich feel with a bit of residual sweetness. It is very easy to consume in large quantities. O - Don’t see this style all that often so I am not really sure how to compare it to others I have had. It is a well balanced beer with a decent amount of bitterness for so few IBU’s. Yet another flavorful, easy drinking scratch beer.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Pours clearer amber with a decent white head, creamy. Aroma brings fruity clean amber malts. Flavor is same, nice clean lager malt flavors with a nice fruity yeast settling on the palate easily.

Not bad for the style but a bit too bland and boring. Very simple beer. Troegs can and does do better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
