Altitude - Alt Beer with Attitude is a limited edition release of the original recipe for the Headwall Alt. The original pilot batch was smooth, malty, full bodied but not the "session beer" Headwall Alt. Beyond a classic Altbier but too good to forget, we knew we wanted to one day brew this novel beer again and share it with you. everyone can occasionally use an Altitude adjustment!

From notes (May 2015). A bigger, scaled up version of Tuckerman’s flagship, this is noticeably maltier and fuller. Good, grainy taste and some nice yeast notes, before finishing really clean.

Quick3Beers (986) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Pours a dark copper from a bottle with thick off-white head. Aroma is faint banana and brown sugar, covered up by the head. Flavor is a sweet, malty cherry, with a hit of bitterness. Slight burn from the alcohol, palate is slightly thin. A good beer.

halfonit (1326) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at Battleship. Pours a murky dark amber color with a super thick white head. Aroma is of dusty malts, hops and aluminum. Taste is pretty much the same with a little roasty toasty sweetness. Quite possibly molasses. Nice lacing. Leaves a toasted malt finish.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Sinus clearing spicy caramel-dough aroma. Dark brown, very active, lasting head film. Brown sugar malt, nut and dark fruit taste, and fairly bitter at that. Thick and heavy all around. Best beer of this style I can remember being made Germany.

annunz123 (948) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Malty aroma, with nuts, caramel/toffee, and some spice. Flavor is somewhat sweet and a little spicy. Some pine hops and a fair amount of drying alcohol in the finish. A nice, tasty sipper.

DuffMan (9611) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle, shared with my wife. Deep amber brown, average tan head. Fruity caramel aroma, with deeper dark sugar notes and a pleasant yeasty edge. Rich malty palate, dark sugars, dates, fruity yeast. Rich and full bodied, excellent.

jcwattsrugger (12198) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2013
12oz bottle–tan-mahogany. A-roasty/anise/earthy-med malt, hint of med fruit. T-roasty med malt overtaken by antiseptic. After the beer got to breath and I drank about half of it, the antiseptic was only in the background. With roasty/toffee/nutty/peat-med malt, some hops. No expiration month notched. Bought 5 days before drinking. 7/4/5/3/11=3.0 Better cold. 7/4/6/4/13=3.4

Their interpretation of a Sticke Alt. Pours a dark brown with a smooth tan head. This surprised me as taste was malty and clean on the palate. Looking forward to this fall seasonal.
