COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This lightly hopped, copper-colored ale is a style that originated in the northern ’tal’ or valley of Germany commonly known as the Rhine Valley. The specific style is Altbier; ’alt’ meaning ’old’, referencing the time-honored practice of top-fermentation, which actually results in a fresh (not old) session ale with a slightly malty skew. ABV - 5.0%, IBUs - 38, OG - 12.0 Plato (Becher).

Draft pour at the source. Pours a semi-hazy copper with a white head of foam. Bread, spent grain, oats, and nuts come through in the aroma. The taste is mostly sweet and nutty. Medium carbonation. Light body.

Dark amber copper. Thick foam. Caramelized. Kinda reminds of a fat tire...which is a good thing.

cbfobes (2290) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Tap at the brewery, pours a clear reddish brown with a lasting off white head and lacing, the aroma is of really sweet malt with a hint of bittering hops as well, the flavor is sweet but kind of lacks in the finish, some banana and fruit comes through too, nothing crazy but not bad.

Had on draft at brewery. A hazy copper color with a finger of tan head and decent lacing. Aroma of light caramel and biscuit with some herbal hops. Taste also has light caramel with toasty and grainy malt character. Herbal and earthy hop flavor with some bitterness and a light and semi dry finish. Mouthfeel is smooth with a light body and moderate carbonation. A clean ans sessionable beer.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Draft at Urban Chestnut. Pours a deep reddish with some haze and a tan head. Nose is rich and malty, sweet nose with herbal and spicy hops. On tasting, taste is moderately bitter with a tangy malt note. Low molasses as well. Bitterness is a bit sharp/harsh. Clean overall but lacks complexity.

Draft sample. Poured cloudy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate balanced flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of average duration. Good session brew.

tap at brewpub-pours copper hue with a small fuzzy white head. nose is malty sweet with a touch of esters and earthy hops. WOW!-nice spicy hop flavors here, more hops than i would expect in this style however a welcome addition to this unique style. lots of spicy hop flavors with some lovely lager yeast character some earthy hops on the finish with a lite metallic note. I really dig this beer and it was the best i had while at the brewpub that evening.

Draft at the brewery. A coppery and hazy beer. Oh so very soft hops are delicate and pleasant. Some light fruit is also pleasant. Plenty of grain with bread and some caramel. A tasty beer and a style that is always interesting.
