COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An ultra-premium all-malt and traditional German-style ale at 5% alc./vol. Deep copper to light brown colour with an aromatic focus on malt elements of fresh baked biscuits and toast. Malt initially dominates the palate with typical Altbier flavours of biscuits, followed by an intense yet pleasant hop bitterness. A slightly dry body and reduced ale fruitiness is achieved by extended deep-cold aging. Can be served with beef soups, spinach salad, roast chicken, pork tenderloin, falafel, chocolate cake, and smoked cheeses.

Crystal clear orange brew with a creamy, off-white head. Interesting ink-blot lacework. Nutty, caramely aroma with notes of English toffee and milk chocolate. Malty, nutty flavor. Medium-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Medium-length, dry, grassy finish. Very satisfying! Could prove to be a very good Fall session beer!
