COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mahogany perfection glistening off the lake, it’s pristine finish shimmers as it glides effortlessly across the water. The gentleman driver leans back and relaxes, letting the fresh lake air blow through his hair. Images of those classic wood powerboats populate the memories of Muskoka and lakes across North America. And to commemorate this bygone era, Sawdust City has brewed a beer as classic and pristine as the waterfront that once ruled our lakes. Ol’ Woody Alt is a lagered ale, fashioned after the beers from the Dusseldorf region of Germany. Filtered to a gleaming mahogany this ale drinks as smooth as the finish on those iconic wood boats of yesteryear. So come on down to Sawdust City and savour a taste of the past.

Bought directly from the brewery. Smells malty with a hint of hops. Pours a medium dark brown with head that lasts to the end. Taste is malty, a little sweet with a hop undertone. Good carboantion, with a medium hop aftertaste. Overall I was happy with this beer. IBU is advertised as 35, but I would say 25 tops. Very well balanced, easy drinking. Would buy again. MB.

KyotoLefty (10265) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 10, 2016
Can. Nose is metal, a bit of hop, touch of caramel. Amber-orange, clear, with a fine head. Caramel flavor turns dry, a bit of minerals and earth. Creamy and drinkable but so bland.

Thin body, minerally. Very boring and how new world breweries think you should make an Alt. totally lame

Raistlin (410) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2016
Pours dark brown with enormous light brownish head that tastes incridible and sticks around for little bit. Really nice woody taste to it. Great finish with great sensation on your gums. Pretty lively for ale, and it has lighter texture than normal ales. Really easy drinking for ale.

Kauge (1958) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 7, 2016
Tap at Bar Volo. Bright copper, pretty clear, with smallish off-white head. The aroma is pure and malty, crisp, fresh, with some stone fruit sweetness. Tastes sweet, far from grainy but pleasantly malty, dried apples and cidery hints. Finishes dry. Crisp carbonation. Excellent drinkability. Very nice. I haven’t had too many Altbiers but it must be among the nicest ones, the malt profile is really lovely.

I was probably tired of all the IPA-s by then : )

piscator34 (2534) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 9, 2016
Can. Light brown in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of cola spices, caramel, and whole wheat bread. Flavors are of sweet bready malts, very husky grains, and chalk. Light bodied with an astringent bitterness. Unbalanced due to the astringency.

3.2
Listigovers (1174) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2016 Clear amber brown with minimal head, smells sweetish, flavour is malty caramely with a bit of wood, not bad.
