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.

My favourite Alt beer when I lived near the brewery, well before BAs came into being. I was very pleased to see this and the Ur-Alt for sale at Beers of Europe and ordered some straight away. Brown 500ml bottle, best before 5th Jul 09, drank 16th Mar 09. Poured into my old Bolten Alt 0.2 litre tankard three times, how we have both missed seeing it full of Alt. Beautiful deep amber, nut brown colour with a huge foaming off-white creamy head. The beer is clear and just a joy to see again. Never had a big nose, it however does possess an aroma of malted barley and hops, just enough to let you know you have a very good Alt in your hand (if you were blind and couldnt see). The taste is also wonderful, a mix of malted biscuits (unsweetened), toasted brown bread and lightly smoked ham. I must admit it seemed a bit thinner than I thought I remembered, so its body let it down a little. Good flavour retension though, so it isnt weak, just lacking that inner strenght I can recall. Very drinkable and Im very glad I found it again.
