Pinkus
Münster Alt

Unlike altbier from Dusseldorf, alt from the city of Münster is pale glowing gold in color.

The History of Organic Munster Alt

"Alt" is the German word for "old" or "original" and the alt style is certainly older than German lager styles. Today, alt - an ale - is a specialty of Westphalia, in Northern Germany.

Taste

Pale, golden color with excellent, herbaceous aroma, delicate fruit-acid palate, and long dry finish.

Serving Suggestion

Cured ham, sweetbreads, lasagna, as an aperitif with a dash of flavored syrup (raspberry, lime or cherry), light breads, croissants, pizza, corn tortillas. Serve in thin, delicate, straight glasses garnished with fresh fruit.
