Bullfrog Brewery Dip Sticke Altbier
Another growler I picked up at Bullfrog Brewery and returned home with was the Dip Sticke Altbier. The beer pours an amber color with a thin filmy white head. The aroma is sweet with malts, cherry, and yeast. The taste is smooth and malty, sweet, a nice cherry accent, and a slightly dry finish with some bitter hops. The caramel backbone of this beer plays well with hints of chocolate and mocha. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. Overall, this was a delicious beer that was sweet, yet not too sweet, and I believe is a forerunner for best of the category.
