Pinkus Münster Alt

At the end of last year, I reviewed the Pinkus Jubilate Dark Lager, and now it's time to look at another offering from the world's oldest organic brewery: the Pinkus Münster Alt.  Sampling this delicious German brew was of course a great treat, and I have to depart from my usual order of beer description and begin with the aroma, which was a gratifying, strong, sweet smell of German malts.  I could smell it from a foot away or so, as I poured the beer!  My mouth began watering before I even had a chance to take note of its attractive golden-yellow appearance.  This beer seems a bit pale for an alt, perhaps, and sports a nice white head that leaves behind some good lacing around the edges of the glass.

Along with the powerful malty aroma were fragrant notes of fruit and yeast.  Overall, the smell and appearance make this a very inviting brew, and their promise of beery enjoyment was no empty one.  This beer has a very nice mouth feel, and started off with fruity flavors of citrus and hints of banana, accompanied by a pleasant tartness and a rounded, medium-bodied maltiness.  The hops were difficult to detect.  This beer is incredibly drinkable, and if one has the benefit of living somewhere nearer the brewery than I do, I'd suggest stocking up on it.  Overall this beer was nearly as magnificent as the Dark Lager.  I'm going to also give this lovely beer four stars, because it deserves them.
