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.

Zlotta (3504) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, 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.
