For their second year round release, Balter opted to turn to the dark side with the ALT Brown. And while it shares little in common with its predecessor in terms of aroma, flavour or appearance, it does come with one thing that brewer Scotty promised would be at the heart of his beers: balance.
There's nothing ostentatious about ALT. Instead, it's a well structured, medium-bodied beer that keeps its hop character in the background and instead delivers subtle layers of toasted, nutty, chocolatey goodness in a tight, sessionable fashion. Tasty.
