Beer Review: Tyranena Brewing Co - Headless Man Amber Alt

Hard to believe that its already Friday, this means my vacation is coming to an end. The 5th and final submission is an Amber Alt style beer that is brewed in southern Wisconsin.

The Headless Man is brewed in the "old way" of a Düsseldorf-style Altbier.  This beer boasts a deep copper color, aromatic hops and Wisconsin caramel malt for a remarkably smooth and delicious taste.

Appearance: Pours a hazy dark amber with a thin head that reduces to a thin layer. Good lacing around the glass.

Aroma: Toasty biscuit aroma with a slight fruitiness.

Flavor: Up front bitterness leading into toasty malt. Fruitiness is present throughout. Not much sweetness, finishes dry and crisp.

Mouthfeel: Low to medium body with low to medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty good alt compared to the other domestic varieties I have had. Very crisp, good hoppy bitterness, and a good amount of yeast fruity esters.
