COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dusseldorf-Style Altbier. Our Amber ale is a wonderful compromise between the light and refreshing, and dark and full-flavored beers available today. Our Amber is clean, and like our Blonde ale, exhibits a crisp, lager-like character. The firm bitterness is balanced by the sweet, caramel and nutty malt character provided by the generous use of Munich, Vienna, and Pilsner malts. 43 IBU

Cask at The Linkery. Very smooth, fruity and delish. Aroma is slight strawberry, sweet hop, mild apple. Flavors of the same with nice fruity malts underneath. I think it’s great.

On tap at the Karl Strauss reception for the CBC. Pours a beautiful deep amber hue with a clean malt nose. The flavor has a nice malt character with hints of caramel and is nicely balanced with just the right amount of hops. This was the crowd favorite at the K.S. event and we blew through a 13.2g. keg in less than 4 hours!

Great beer. Nice sweet start with a great hoppy finish. Really has a nice mouth feel. No head and little laceing is my only real complaint. Poured out of draft at tatoomoms.

A good rendition of the Dusseldorf altbier style. Nice hoppy bitterness, thick fluffy head, orange/copper color. Pleasant sipper...

This was pretty tasty. On the hoppy side up front. Pretty orange color. The flavor in the body is a bit on the sweet side but it’s pretty tasty.

Bomber, thanks Christina! Caramel malt aroma with notes of bready malt and nutty esters. Pours caramel colored with one finger of tan head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with sweet caramel malt flavors with light bread notes. Finishes smooth with the caramel sweetness carrying throughout as well as a bit of nutty character as well. Really good amber even though it isn't one per se.

On tap at PB Taproom. Dark amber with a big head when I repoured it into a pint. Nice mellow malts in the aroma. Flavor is toasty and plenty hoppy and dry. Maybe a bit too hippy for the style but pretty tasty.

Sample at the brewery. It is a good altbier. Overly hopped but in a good way. Unexpectedly good.

Roasted notes but strong hop profile. Nutty notes on the palate. A bit of a metallic finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
