Day #166 – (512) ALT

June 16, 2011

Yet another Texas beer today folks and it’s one that I’ve been waiting to make it up to DFW.

(512) ALT

(512) Brewing Company as you recall is based out of Austin (hence the name). Their ALT is classified as an Altbier which is a type of hybrid style. It is fermented warm at ale temperatures but then lagered at colder temps. The ABV is at 6%. With this beer I have now tried every beer (512) has released! (Which is 12 but I’ve only featured 4 of them on this blog).

This beer pours a clear light copper color with a small white head. The head dissipates fairly quickly but remains long enough to leave a residue on the edge of the glass.

The aroma is big time caramel malts and grains. Smooth and sweet with a tad bit of roastedness.

Flavor is caramel sweet with a nutty bite. Light bitter finish from the hops but also a roasty finish.

Nice and well done. This company has a bright future!
