Northern German Altbier

A very clean and relatively bitter beer, balanced by some malt character. Generally darker, sometimes
more caramelly, and usually sweeter and less bitter than Düsseldorf Altbier. Fairly bitter yet balanced by a smooth and sometimes sweet malt character that may have a rich, biscuity and/or lightly caramelly flavor. Dry finish often with lingering bitterness. Clean, lager character sometimes with slight sulfury notes and very low to no esters. Very low to medium noble
hop flavor.

Commercial Examples:

DAB Traditional, Hannen Alt, Schwelmer Alt, Grolsch Amber, Alaskan Amber, Long Trail Ale, Otter Creek Copper Ale, Schmaltz’ Alt
