Alt is German for old, which refers to the traditional method of ale brewing before the advent of lagers. Altbiers are wonderful, medium-bodied amber ales featuring an admirable balance between malty smoothness and hoppy bitterness. Old Town Alt is true to its heritage, with its rich malt body skillfully balanced by noble hop bitterness, all winding down to a smooth caramel finish.
