The Lubicz Alt Beer comes from Düsseldorf, the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia. The Alt name means "old" and refers to the "old" style of top fermentation brewing, appeared in the nineteenth century. Then light lager beer began to reign. Altbier wanted to emphasize the tradition, locality and to refer to the old beers. Altbier is light or dark brown, top-fermented beer. The flavor profile is built by traditional Munich barley malt and the German hops. Caramel and sweetness are noticeable, but they don’t dominate, because they are well-balanced by hop bitterness. It also affects flavor, which is dry and medium length. To our Lubicz Alt Bier we also add wheat malt, as well as roasted malt, which have toast and roasted flavour. Although it is a top-fermented beer, its maturation takes place at low temperature. Therefore, there are no aromas esters, and the beer has a clear, lager profile.
