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.

Kauge (2127) - 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 (2663) - 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.

Listigovers (1343) - 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.

I think if they’re going to call a beer ol’ woody it should be barrel aged. Tease. Anyway.. Pours s nice amber with spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet malts and dough. A bit if dried fruit with a tangy finish that I often associate with lesser beer.

3.4
ljthiessen (1448) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 24, 2016
Can. Mostly clear, amber-brown pour with a small head. Aroma is malty, sweet with a touch of metallic and grassy bitterness. Taste is a little bitter, roasty and metallic, a little nutty. Decently balanced but some odd flavours... Some good elements, but a bit odd.

northropfrye (3709) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
Dark semi-transparent, reddish brown body, with off-white head and some lacing. sweet malty grainy aroma, a little dry. Taste is balanced between sweet fruity and nutty malts and dry hoppy bitter element. Not bad.

2.6
Hammy78 (977) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Can. Pours a deep copper, massive off white fluffy head, leaving tons of bubbly lace. Nose is crisp, malty, a touch burnt. Tastes a little clearly like. Nothing to get excited about.

ILduce (285) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2015
Can LCBO: red beer with tiny beige head. Sweet, hoppy nose. Taste is of caramel, malt, and earth. Sticky mouthfeel with a decent bitter finish. A little thin. Just okay.

3.2
Tranquillity (2531) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Canned. Dark red, large white head. The aroma is sweet, nutty and with caramel. The taste is good, like an alt should be.
