Later today, we have an appointment with another florist. This will be the third florist we’ve met with. Although a lot of people go crazy for flowers, it’s not something that I have a strong opinion about, as long as everything isn’t pink. My biggest concern is that if it snows, they’ll have trouble delivering them to the venue. Anyways, let’s get to the beer.
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This German-style Altbier is our nod to an old world, old school ale. The word ‘Alt’ is German for ‘old’, and refers to the traditional style of brewing before lager yeast was discovered. Balt is a dark, copper colored brew with a creamy head, a gentle bitterness and a clean, dry finish. Prost, Hon!”
Random: This beer came in at 45 IBUs.
The beer poured with a three finger, loose, tan head that dissipated slowly. It left no lacing behind on the glass. The body was a clear, copper color with intense carbonation. The nose was filled with earthy notes of peat, leather, dirty and tobacco. It had a caramel and nutty aroma as well. The taste was very malty with underlying peat and nuts. Caramel and toffee came out along with leather and earth. It had a medium body with a lot of carbonation. The finish was lengthy with caramel. A can of this was $1.83, which broke down to $.15 per ounce. I don’t get to try too many altbiers, but I enjoyed this one for a change of pace. I’ll be trying this one again next time I’m around DC.
