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

Es entspricht einem klassischen Altbier und wird unverändert mit 11,7% Stammwürze eingebraut. Das war´s 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-süffiger Hopfennote - ohne jedoch herb zu werden. Insgesamt ein ungewöhnlich 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 für Jahr. Frischer Geschmack setzt sich eben durch.

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

Took a bit of chance on this as I picked up a crate from a supermarket in Munchen-Gladback. Never tried the style before but happily impressed with this. More of an autumn/winter beer. Heavy caramel overtones in this full bodied, smooth chestnut coloured ale.

kerenmk (5358) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 13, 2017
From the barrel, at some shitty dive bar next to our hotel, Düsseldorf, 11.10.17. Clear dark golden brown with a frothy head. Malt and some nuts and rather earthy aroma, bitter, cereals and a little bit of caramel taste. Medium-to-full body, sweetish malty finish and fair fizz.

Zlotta (4158) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 19, 2017
0.33 l bottle from local ’trinkgut’, best before December 2017. Clear, dark reddish amber with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish, slightly malty, bready and a bit fruity aroma of caramel, bread, nuts and hints of raisins. Moderately sweet, slightly malty, a bit fruity taste of caramel, toasted nuts and a touch of raisins, followed by a short, slightly bitter, quite dry finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Pretty boring and average Alt, quaffable but I don’t really like it.

Derbeth (1127) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 26, 2017
Bottle. Brown colour, rocky head that diminishes after a while. Aroma is intensive dark bread and nuts. Light bitterness, slight sweetness. Light body, medium carbonation. Very good.

Icedwarf (1886) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2017
Helder bruin bier met mooie schuimkraag. Smaak is bitter hoppig en licht zoet met iets van hooi, gras en bittere chocolade. Erg mooi alt bier.

3.3
kermis (14999) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2017
Bottle at home from the source. Near clear dark amber with a light tan head. Aroma of malt, yeast, caramel, light overripe dark fruits and nutty notes. Flavour is light moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.
