German-Style Altbier

German-Style Altbier Beer

German-Style Altbier is a type of beer that originates from the German city of Düsseldorf. It is a top-fermented beer, meaning that the yeast rises to the top during fermentation. This gives the beer a cleaner flavour than other types of beer.

German-Style Altbier is also known for its amber colour and its slightly bitter taste. It is traditionally served in a narrow glass, which helps to retain the beer’s flavour and aroma. German-Style Altbier is a popular choice among beer lovers, and it is sure to please anyone who enjoys a good pint.
