On the bottle:
A delicious northwest seasonal brewed with winter in mind. A dark double alt, malty, nourishing and delicious, it’s sure to keep the winter at bay, and yes, Sleigh’r does rock!

Tasting Notes:
An Alt ferments with Ale yeast at colder lagering temperatures. This effect gives Alts a more refined a crisp lagerlike flavor than traditional ales. The Double Alt means that it has been Ninkasified. Regular Alts are 5 to 5.5 % and 40 ibus.Sleigh’r has a deep toasted malt flavor that finnished dry and has 7.2 % alc and 50 ibus keeping it in a perfect Alt balance.!
