Hops & Grain: Alt-eration
Alt-eration is Hops & Grain’s (2012 World Beer Cup Gold Medal winning) Altbier. This beer has three distinct layers of flavor. It begins with a heavy malt profile, then a subtle but pleasant hops flavor ending with a strong hops bitterness. The hops and bitterness does mellow after a few sips. Altbeer is a style I’m not all that familiar with but I enjoyed this beer and I would drink this again and I’m encouraged to drink more of the style.
