Genesee Brew House Altbier

Today I'm checking out Genesee Brew House Altbier. This is a Dusseldorf-Style beer brewed by Brewmaster Dean Jones in Rochester, NY, as part of this pilot batch system. Alt means "Old" as in style, not shelf life. 5.5% alcohol.

Malty, herbal and a tiny bit nutty aroma, pretty subtle. Exactly the same flavors, malty with some herbal tea. But after an initial sweet flavor, some spicy bitterness creeps in at the end of each sip and lingers into the finish.

Smooth, simple, dare I say delicate? Liked the flavorful simplicity.
