Douberd (2506) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle of 300 ml at home. This beer pours a deep golden yellow colour, maybe two tones lighter than of copper.Very thin head, white in colour. Minimal activity in the glass in the form of bubbles. The head disappeared rather quckly. Obvious aroma of malts. The taste is sweet, some citrus in there, with a slight bitter aftertaste. The high alcohol is very nicely hidden. Thick on the body with average carbonation. Overall, quite good.

ALLOVATE (2458) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2006
Form the bottle into a tall boy glass. Bright, sparkling, honey gold with tight, fine carbonation sustaining a tight, well formed, dense head of cream that laced well. Appearance, lovely! Slightly leftfield ’eggy’ nose lasted a few minutes before subsiding to reveal some sweet candi and fresh toasted grains. Simple. It is grainy, sweet and spicy in the mouth filling all corners but lacking in the middle.Soft on the tongue with a faintly fruity, bitter and spicy hop swallow that is void of the ABV. Residually sweet, it holds some mango and peach juices in the mouth long between swallows. Nothing disagreeable here, all neat and tidy, smooth and quenching. Not too bad a drop. Just needs more essence in the core!!! (30cL, BBE 12/06, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

#816 Der "Super Dortmunder" ist goldgelb mit feinporigem Schaum, der sich einen Tick zu schnell verabschiedet. In der Nase süßmalzig und leicht alkoholisch. Der Antrunk ist schwer und voll, aber geschmacklich ist dieses Export sehr süß geraten und leider überhaupt nicht hopfig. Der Abgang wird zu sehr vom deutlich zu hohem Alkoholgehalt dominiert. Nein, dieser "Super Dortmunder" ist leider ein viel zu süßer, leicht bockiger Holländer! Dabei sieht das Label der Flasche echt gut aus... Test vom 5.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,8,8,7,12,8 - 8,35

Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2014
Well-known Dutch lager, like the other Alfas brewed with their own spring water. Relatively stable, snow white head on a pure golden coloured, cristal clear beer; nose gets floral Saaz hops, a bit of hay, grains and sweetish malts, taste malty, sweetish in onset, towards the end mildly hoppy, and what surprised me the most, was the fact that in spite of it being bottom-fermented, pale and a lager, the alcohol was hardly noticeable. I am a bit surprised by the negative reviews here, but I had it over ten years ago and it may have declined in quality since then, so I guess it’s time to re-rate it. alcohol ondanks de hoge dosis, de ondergisting en de bleke kleur amper merkbaar, zelfs niet in de afdronk

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 22, 2006
Amber/golden coloured brew. Aroma is nice, a bit honey, bit malty. Hoppy flavours, a bit bitter. Tastes not really that great, maybe a bit too sweet.

vipinvelp (2319) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2013
Clear dark yellow with small white foam ring. Aroma is seriously malty. Taste is malty and quite some carbon gas. Aftertaste is short. Think this beer might taste better when joined with some spicy Indonesion food. (Velp 201307)

Kristall-König (2293) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - NOV 10, 2011
Hopfig-grasiger Geruch, leicht zitronig. Süßlich-heuiger Antrunk. Mittig etwas schal, malzig. Malzstichiger Abgang. Bittert moderat ab. Trinkbar.

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2002
Clear orange-golden color. Nice nose, hoppy flavor. Slight alcohol finish. There are better examples of the the Dortmunder style out there.

@Backlog 3.1 Alfa bieren zijn altijd wat smaakvol, orange/gouden met witte kraag, moutig, zoet, karamel, redelijk zoet. redelijke body. iets van vanille

21iceman40 (1731) - vienna, West Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2005
Very clear orangish color with a small soapy head. The aroma brings me back to my mgd days as it has a musty basement and wet hay vibe to it. I get alot of wet grass that is stewing in the body and some roastyness.
