Commercial Description

This full bodied amber ale is modeled after the "altbiers" of Dusseldorf, Germany. Our top fermenting yeast and cold finishing temperature result in a complex, yet clean, full flavor. Originally introduced in 1989.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

    Appearance: The body has good clarity and a nice medium amber color. Its head was off white in color, of average size and quickly settles down and fades to thin ring of lace.

    Smell: The aroma has hints of leafy, mineral like and grassy hops with some lightly toasted grain.

    Taste/Mouth feel: The flavor is well balanced and delicate. Hop flavor is leafy and grassy with mild bitterness. It is in very good balance with the light bready malt. The light bitterness fades quickly and cleanly off the tongue, setting you up for the next sip. It has a light to medium body, smooth texture and average carbonation.

    Notes: Overall it's an all around good beer with wonderful drinkability.
