COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our winter seasonal is a nod to the classic altbiers of Dusseldorf. A full, toasty malt profile is countered by generous additions of German Hops. Well balanced but assertively hopped, this complex but approachable beer is ideal for shaking off the chill of winter.

Served on draft at Timberwood Grill in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy copper color with a medium frothy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of toffee, caramel and a faint earthy smokiness. The taste is toasted malts, toffee, caramel and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied.

Draft at craft ale house. Pours clear copper with a small white head. The aroma has some minor hop notes and some malty sweetness. The taste is medium hoppy and very enjoyable. I’m a fan.

DocLock (11025) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Draft at Craft Ale House. Pours caramel colored with off-white head that doesn’t lace well. Nose is toffee, caramel malt, piney hops. Tastes crisp, with a solid caramel malt bill and some spicy notes up front, giving way to a big hop blast at mid-palate. I give credit to Evolution for realizing that hops have a place in winter seasonals, too.

12oz bottle split with Anndiesel. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan body. Thin, oily non head. Toasty malt with some balancing orange hop aroma. Captures the style rather respectfully. Medium bodied, very easy drinking for the ABV. True to style, enjoyable.

Dark copper color with tan head. Aroma is characteristically malty. Flavor is sweet caramel Altbier malt with some pine hop balance. Less heavy on the malt than most altbiers. Enjoyed it.

BillKismet (4137) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Rich amber body with a nice caramel, creamy head. Enjoyable malty aroma with slightly woody notes. The body is malty, well balanced and with the characteristic altbier undercurrent of aged woodiness. Easy drinking.
