Style: Düsseldorf-style Altbier
A copper-colored, medium-bodied, German-style ale with lots of malt flavor. "Altbier" means "Old Beer" in German. This name comes from the fact that it's fermented with an ale yeast; which lager-loving Germans consider old-fashioned. This beer has a clean, crisp taste, especially for an ale. Hop bitterness and aroma are moderate, with malt being the primary flavor. Recipe uses two types of imported German hops, combined with a German-style malt extract & German yeast strain. This gives much more authentic results than commonly-used British malt extract.
