COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This German-style Altbier is our nod to an old world, old school ale. The word Alt is German for "old", and refers to the traditional style of brewing before lager yeast was discovered. Balt is a dark, copper colored brew with a creamy head, a gentle bitterness and a clean, dry finish. Prost, Hon!

Sampled at GABF 2016 with Paul and Larry. Pours a deep brown body with thin off white lacing. Nose is plain malt. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with notes of syrupy malt, sugar and some nuttiness as well.

tap 7/2016 at Union. Pours amber with medium head. Nose is nutty and toast with a pinch of spices. The bitterness in the after taste was less than desirable. sort of killed the spicy hop I was looking forward to.

gripweed57 (1458) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2015
12 ounce can. Deep reddish brown color topped by a firm rocky beige head that yields a nice clinging lace. Aroma is nutty toasted malt with a touch of Dutch cocoa powder. Flavor mirrors the aroma. More nutty maltiness with a hint of cocoa and spicy herbal hops. Nice balance and flavor throughout. Dry spicy hop finish. Lacks the malt complexity of a traditional German Alt, but tasty nonetheless.

12oz can in a plastic cup. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and pale and light chocolate malts, some floral hops, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer for the style.
