Driftwood Brewery Crooked Coast Altbier Review

Driftwood Brewing Co. – Crooked Coast Altbier Review

The Crooked Coast Altibeer is an Amber Ale which pours a lightly opaque dark-amber colour. The head is a finger and a half thick and settles into a light film lacing the glass. The scent is sweetened with floral notes, a malty base and a distinct German hop. The flavour starts off crisp with citrus notes of grapefruit and orange building into a well-bodied caramel centre. This fruit flavour settles into a lightly bittered hop finish along side the distinct slightly burnt, caramel flavours which carry on from the midsection. This German Alt-style beer is crisp and refreshing with a bold and traditional german style flavour to match. As one of the go-to favourites for BC Craft Beer drinkers this beer has earned its place on the liquor store shelves and in the door of your fridge.
