Alts are a bit difficult to explain to the uninitiated - you'll just have to try a glass of coppery-brown, rich, caramelly, and bitter ale to get the idea.
If you enjoyed Excelsior Altbier, you'll love this kit!
Alt refers to an old-school, top-fermented style of brewing ale rather than a relatively modern bottom-fermented lager. Altbier is especially associated with the city of Düsseldorf. Alts are a bit difficult to explain to the uninitiated - kind of like a hoppy Oktoberfest? A very malty pale ale? You'll just have to try a glass of coppery-brown, rich, caramelly, and bitter ale to get the idea.

Altbier is one of those that's hard to describe, but this is a good one. Complex malt character, and though it looks like a lot of hops, they compliment rather than dominate the malt. I brewed this one on a whim, but it's probably made it's way into my regular rotation.
