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.
