This recipe is an example of traditional German Altbier, with a brown-coppery color, pronounced bitterness balanced with strong malty flavor with a nice touch of caramel notes.

Altbier is especially associated with the city of Dusseldorf. Alts are a bit difficult to explain to the uninitiated - kind of like a hoppy Oktoberfest? A very malty pale ale? You'll just have to try a glass of coppery-brown, rich, caramelly, and bitter ale to get the idea.
