Altbier (old beer) is a wonderfully complex beer that is brewed in Dusseldorf, Germany. Locals consume this magical beer by the thousands of barrels per year. In fact, it would take a brave person to ask for anything else but Altbier in Dusseldorf! Light copper to light brown, very clear from lagering, white to off white head with good retention makes this fairly bitter beer a unique standout. Having a malty, biscuit and/or light caramel flavor with a dry finish makes this a very special brew. So, enjoy a glass or two imagining your're in the atstadt on a spring day enjoying a truly local German beer!
