Spoetzl Brewery – Shiner Old-Time Alt (Altbier)

  • 4.20% ABV
  • This is the first time I have added a new category in months. Awesome… I am also pretty excited to try an Altbier, I have been reading about people loving on them for a while now. Last time that happened all the excitement was over Black IPA’s and holy crap are those awesome. Plus, even tho lots of people talk shit about Shiner, I love Spoetzl beers. This is a recipe for awesome…. And it delivers! Super punch you in the nose DEEP malt smell that almost scared me, I thought it would taste like a stout. But no. It has a very strong malt taste but it isnt deep (chocolaty???) tasting. It finishes out with a noticeably crisp feel. I wont replace IPA’s with Alt’s but holy crap this is a good style??? I know this is a good beer.
