Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Very brown and some head, very lacey. Citrus hop and chocolate malt. Tingling carbonation. Very good beer, very nice alt, recommended.Satisfying as a refreshment and also as a traditional style made by these experimental guys.
Serving type: on-tap

Dip Sticke Altbier has a clear brown body with a small, soapy-looking tan head. A few scraps of lacing stay behind.
The aroma is refreshingly malty. Bread, toasty flavors, a hint of cocoa and just a bit of sweetness. Floral hops linger in the background.
I don't come across many good altbiers; most just taste like watered-down brown ales. All it took was one sip of Dip Sticke for me to decide I wanted a growler of it, so it appears that this beer might be the exception. Dip Sticke packs plenty of malt, with toasted malt, a little bit of bread, a bit of dry, powdery cocoa and just a hint of caramel sweetness. Despite the big malt profile, this beer is well-attenuated and never becomes too sweet. It's pretty dry actually. After the malt a little bit of generic fruit flavors come from the yeast. The finish has a good bit of grassy and floral hops, which add a little more dryness, but only bring a minimal amount of bitterness. There might be a hint of lemon zest in there also. Pretty crisp.
The head was a bit anemic looking and slow rising, but the mouthfeel had plenty of heft and carbonation to it.
This is one of the best American-brewed alts that I have come across. Well-done Bullfrog!
