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.
