COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Most folks from the Northeast go to Florida when November arrives. But not the Southampton brewmaster, Phil Markowski. Back in 1995, Phil headed to Düsseldorf, Germany to taste the famous altbiers of the region. "Alts" are unique: less fruity than most ales but with a crisp drinkability of a lager. So what did Phil bring back from his trip? Authentic German ingredients and a recipe for an altbier that will surprise your senses. One taste and you’ll be happy that Phil decided not to go to Florida, too.

Dogbrick (14391) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Sampled at From The Vine beer tasting Sep 22nd, 2006: Well the secret is out and I’m not quite sure why it was a secret in the first place, as this is a pretty run-of-the-mill Altbier. Pours dark clear brown with a compact light tan head that lingers. Patchy lacing. The aroma is nutty and malty.Medium-bodied and smooth with a toasted malt and hops flavor, along with some nuts. The finish is nutty with a lingering hops aftertaste. Thoroughly average.

Taste is caramel, toffee, chocolate, raisin and a fairly strong hop finish. Medium bodied and refreshing, though a little uneven. Quite a nice alt.
