COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Das BOLTENs Alt ist, wenn Sie so wollen, der Ur-Ahn unseres Produktsortimentes.

Es entspricht einem klassischen Altbier und wird unverndert mit 11,7% Stammwrze eingebraut. Das wars dann aber auch schon hinsichtlich der Gemeinsamkeiten mit anderen Altbieren.

Im Gegensatz zu vielen Wettbewerbern erzielen wir die altbiertypische dunkle Farbgebung durch die besondere Mischung feiner Spezialmalze.

Das Malz, das milde Brauwasser sowie eine besondere Komposition aus 4 Hopfensorten wird von unseren Brauern zu einer harmonisch-abgerundeten Gesamtrezeptur im Sudhaus vermaischt, gekocht und mit dem hauseigenen Bolten-Hefestamm vergoren.

Das Ergebnis ist ein voller, aromatischer Altbier-Geschmack mit fein-sffiger Hopfennote - ohne jedoch herb zu werden. Insgesamt ein ungewhnlich aromenreicher Charakter.

Soviel Geschmack kommt an: BOLTENs Alt hat im Laufe der Jahre von den unterschiedlichsten Jurys zahlreiche Auszeichnungen erhalten, u.a. DLG, CMA und Monde Selection. Noch wichtiger ist uns aber: BOLTENs Alt findet immer mehr Liebhaber und Kunden, denn der Absatz steigert sich kontinuierlich Jahr fr Jahr. Frischer Geschmack setzt sich eben durch.

Zutaten: Wasser, Gerstenmalz, Weizenmalz, Hopfenextrakt. Alk. 4,9 % vol.

DutchMark (374) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2014
Not familiar with the style so it is hard to compare. Looks nice deep clear copper. Small head and sufficient but low carbonation. Body it quite weak. Flavor is subtle with a nice hint of smoke some malt, bitter hops and caramel. There is a metallic element I do not like so much. Curious to see how they compare to others in the style.

JulienHuxley (5691) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle from the Bierkoning. Clear brown, no head. Aroma is really toasty, toasted bread, caramel. Taste is sweet, toasty, very light caramel, really really bready malt. Palate is med bodied with light carbonation. Too heavy on the toasted malt I think, this is not so easy drinking.
