Before the lager strains were discovered ale yeast was used by the German brewers. These ales had a deep amber color that came from kilning the grains over the high heat wood fires before cooler more controllable coal heat. The "old style" is remarkable different than most ales because of the clean malt flavor and aroma with only a strong hop bitterness in the finish for an accent. Try our version of this classic.
