A hybrid of ale and lager and between amber and brown in color, this beer is of the Düsseldorf Altbier style, except “secret” or sticke with more German malts and hops.  A nice amount of biscuit, toffee, and caramel in the malt aroma and flavor.  These malt characters are noticeable at the forefront and fade to a dry finish; with a nice lingering, but not strong bitterness.  Tons of flavor, but easy drinking as well.

Deep amber pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma is light malt and bread. Flavor is slightly sweet malt with a nice medium resiny like bitter finish. Medium body with aggressive carbonation.

ChainGangGuy (4808) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Appearance: Slightly hazed, medium copper-hued body with an inch of off-white foam. Nice lacing action on the way down.

Smell: Herbal, lightly spicy hop note just barely ahead of the toasted grain, bread, low caramel accents and scant fruitiness.

Taste: Toasted malts, a bit bready, a bit biscuity. Light caramelization and imparted sweetness. Fruitiness from plum skins, maybe a little apple. Earthy, herbal hops, lightly bitterness. Semi-dry, malty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Not appreciably different from the previous Alted State Sticke. So, again, WB delivers a nice, tasty alt.

deyholla (10214) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Cask at the brewpub, dry hopped with Wakatu. Pours a clear amber orange with a light brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a light combination of grass and pine hops with a backbone of grain and biscuit. Flavor starts with an earthy grass note with a hint of wood backed by a good amount of earthy grain.
