64. Tuckerman Headwall Alt

Two very good beers in one night. This is an excellent example of a German Brown Ale and is very easy to drink. Pours a nice dark brown with a solid hear that lasted throughout leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Carbonation was just right and overall just a quality beer. Don’t let the color fool you this is an easy to drink beer with a relatively low alcohol content.
Pros: Smooth drinking and great color
Cons:
Alcohol Content: 4.75% ABV
Calories: ???
IBU (Bitterness): ??
Rating: ★★★½☆

Brewers Description: In 2005, the Headwall Alt was introduced. This is traditional style of altbeir from Düsseldorf, Germany. Alt literally means old in German. Staying as true to the recipe as possible, the Headwall Alt is brewed using German malts, plus German and American hops. Like the Pale Ale, the Headwall Alt is cold conditioned, dry-hopped and krausened in the bottle or keg. Similar to the Pale Ale, the process takes about 30 days. The Headwall Alt was rated in the Top 6 brews in New England in the Boston Globe Magazine in 2009. It also made Beer Advocate’s list of top altbiers.
