Beer Description:
Altbier is an amber-hued, finely balanced lagered ale, something of a cousin to Beau’s flagship beer, Lug Tread. While both beers are German-style lagered ales, Altbier offers up high-intensity, balanced maltiness and more hop presence. It has subtle fruity ale notes, and a crisp lager finish.

History & Style
Alt is a German style of ale that originates from the northern part of the Rhineland. Caramunich malts give Altbier its colour and a subtle caramel sweetness. This beer recipe is a true Beau’s classic — in fact, Brewmaster Matthew O’Hara had been tinkering with it even before Beau’s opened its doors. It was first released in 2008 as “Festivale,” a signature release for Ottawa’s Jazz Festival. It has popped up several times in the Beau’s repertoire over the past decade, garnering awards in 2009 and 2012. The flags in the artwork are a subtle tribute to the story of this beer.

Tasting Notes
Altbier pours bright deep copper with a thick white foam. Malt dominates the aroma giving impressions of dark bread crust with undertones of grassy hops. The flavour feature assertive hop bitterness in harmony with a grainy malt backbone. The finish is crisp and dry.
