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.

This is a great beer , I think of it as an October fest , it’s packed full of flavor
Was happy with this. After getting a good roil on the yeast cooled it down to finish after a day. Left in the primary 2 weeks. Moved to secondary for three weeks at 62 degrees. Two days before kegging warmed back up to 68 to finish off. Kegged and conditioned for 1 week.
