Düsseldorf Altbier

Description:

When I bottled this batch of Alt Bier last week, it had a wonderful Saaz nose to it, from dryhopping in the secondary. Now, a week later, it's carbonated, ready to drink, and has no Saaz aroma at all...

Other than the loss of nose, it's quite good! Tasty and bitter.
