COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This German-style Altbier is our nod to an old world, old school ale. The word “Alt” is German for "old", and refers to the traditional style of brewing before lager yeast was discovered. Balt is a dark, copper colored brew with a creamy head, a gentle bitterness and a clean, dry finish. Prost, Hon!

tap 7/2016 at Union. Pours amber with medium head. Nose is nutty and toast with a pinch of spices. The bitterness in the after taste was less than desirable. sort of killed the spicy hop I was looking forward to.

altonbrownd (5650) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 1, 2015

gripweed57 (1365) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2015
12 ounce can. Deep reddish brown color topped by a firm rocky beige head that yields a nice clinging lace. Aroma is nutty toasted malt with a touch of Dutch cocoa powder. Flavor mirrors the aroma. More nutty maltiness with a hint of cocoa and spicy herbal hops. Nice balance and flavor throughout. Dry spicy hop finish. Lacks the malt complexity of a traditional German Alt, but tasty nonetheless.

jkwood04 (5281) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 29, 2015
12oz can in a plastic cup. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and pale and light chocolate malts, some floral hops, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer for the style.

JDBaker11058 (1935) - Maryland, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Appearance: medium clear brown, short fizzy/creamy light tan head, average lacing. Aroma: rustic malts that smelled like country brown bread, slight nutty notes, earthy noble hop undertone. Taste: as the aroma indicated, with a little bit of caramel and maybe a hint of stone fruits. Finish: hint of toasted nuts, dry and clean, not too long. Notes: Perfectly acceptable alt. Easy drinking and balanced, but not exceptional. Can at Full On in Rockville, Maryland.

trapped (2245) - New York, TURKEY - APR 6, 2015
Can. Pours amber with medium sized foamy beige head that dissipates quickly, light caramelized malt aroma, medium carbonation, caramel taste with slight bitterness at the end, abrupt finish with sticky caramel aftertaste. Nice and easy to drink.
