COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
cask,special
After positive feedback on our small scale Alt Bier we’ve now scaled up and produced a large batch. Alt Bier is a popular style in the brewpubs of Dusseldorf and is an example of a German Style Ale. Paul our brewer is very familiar with the style having visited Germany many times and has tried to match it as closely as possible to the original by using Crystal malts for colour and taste and large amounts of Strisselspalt hop which give a lovely fruity flavour to the brew.

Cask, hand-pulled, Edward Wylie, Glasgow (Autumn Festival ale) (26 Oct 2015), weak, fruity aroma, amber with a thin, cream head and excellent lacing, creamy malty, toffee, nutty, very easy to drink.

Cask at Standing order. Pours amber. Some caramel aroma. Thick off white creamy head. Malty bready with some dark fruit elements. Okay

downender (8928) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2015
Cask, on gravity at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol October 2015. Copper in colour, with a slight, off-white, head. Sweetish, bready, malts, a touch of raisin fruit, caramel sweetness and a moderately bitter finish. Enjoyable.

The_Osprey (9347) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Oct 2015 - Cask at The Rocket, Putney. Dark orange, clear, still, small foamy off-white head, thick lacing. Aroma has some chewed bubblegum, vague bread. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is papery, cardboard, dry mulched paper, some charr and a touch of butter. Decent dry malty beer, well hopped.

BlackHaddock (7748) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2015
Third of a pint, cask: Moon Under Water, Boston Lincolnshire on 2nd Nov 2015. Colour was a misty amber with an off-white head. Nose had a mild toffee and fruity aromas. The taste also had a toffee like feel with a biscuit maltiness as well, mini fruit flavours in the background too. A little disappointed to be honest: my first Welsh Alt, I wanted it to be more Dusseldorf and less Wrexham.

leaparsons (10802) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
Cask, The William Wygston, Wigston. Mid brown with a cream foam. Weetabix malts with brown sugar. Raisins with mellow lemon. Dry black tea palate. Lightly nutty finish. It’s OK.

Crosse Keys Spoons. Cask. Lightly hazy amber beer, small bubbly pale tan head. Palate is light with mild fine carbonation. Light malts. Trace of tangy dried fruits. A most Sorachi like lemon floralness livens this one up. Light semi dry finish. Mild to medium bitter linger. Interesting.

3.5
jjsint (3521) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2015
Handpull cask at the Pilgrims Progress (JDW), Bedford. Dark gold or honey brown, a trifle hazy. Nice little tonsure of head. Very little aroma consisting of light caramel and malty notes. Taste is much better though: a sweet maltiness is overcome by impressively bitter hop. Decidedly bitter aftertaste. Some baker’s yeast, caraway. Nice mouthfeel, full for a low to medium strength cask ale. Very well done.

3.6
mR_fr0g (13657) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2015
Cask at the crosse keys. Mid golden oramge coloured pour with a off white head. Aroma is zippy lemon, orange blossom and some biscuit. Flavour is nice sorachi ace like hop perfume, floral and hint of coconut, nice rounded malts. Palate is semi sweet, moderate cask condition. Lovely.
