DRAFT REVIEW: Altbier
RATING
96

This muted brown brew’s creamy, tan head unleashes a rich malty aroma: Bread crust scents and sweet caramel drift up to the nose while wafts of earthy hops bring depth to the bouquet. Nutty bread crust flavors splash on the tongue first and spread out below a layer of clean bitterness. Subtle caramel sweet malt notes flash as the beer flows back and nicely contrasts the growing rustic hop flavors. This mellow brew wraps up dry on the tongue; toasty, nutty malt notes stick around after the swallow.
