BrewSA delviers another killer offering in a clean yet malty and suprisingly robust take on the German Altbier. Rich malt profiles of fresh baked bread and graham cracker with a spicy hop profile take center stage as a soft fruity ester and clean, spicy hop profile bring this deep copper brew into perfect balance. Prost!
Assertive hop bitterness well balanced by a sturdy yet clean and crisp malt character. The malt presence is moderated by medium-high to high attenuation, but considerable rich, complex, and somewhat grainy malt flavors can remain. Some fruity esters (especially cherry-like) may survive the lagering period. A long-lasting, medium-dry to dry, bittersweet or nutty finish reflects both the hop bitterness and malt complexity. Spicy, peppery or floral hop flavor can be moderate to low. No roasted malt flavors or harshness. The apparent bitterness level is sometimes masked by the malt character; the bitterness can seem as low as moderate if the finish is not very dry. Light sulfury or minerally character optional.
