malty + crisp + medium body

Brewed in the Sticke (shtick-uh) Alt style, this is a stronger, bigger-bodied variation of the traditional Altbier from the Westfalia region of Germany. A combination of caramel and Munich malts contribute a nutty sweetness with notes of toffee. Fermentation at a cool temperature creates a clean, refreshing character to balance the complex malt profile. This malt-forward beer is punctuated with hops that are floral and slightly-spicy.
