Clear pale golden colour with a good sized white head. Aroma is yeasty, bready, malty, barnyardy. Taste is grassy, malty, hoppy with a light bitter aftertaste. Quite highly carbonated with light mouthfeel which is a bit watery at the finish. Not bad really.

A nice pour with a nice white head, a yeasty nose with hints of sweet malt. The consistency is nice, a bit metalic and salty, with not enough malt or hops. It started nicely, but finished crappy! Not a reccomendation!

Natural and aromatic..... well, from my last experience with Altenmünster lagers, I expected it to be fake and smelly. But, it wasn’t. Still wasn’t too good. Not for the price. Apparently, this was the most expensive beer among the five beers a friend brought from Germany. More expensive than, say, Paulaner Dunkelweizen. Not worth it. It might be because of the bottles, but all Altenmünster beers seem to be far overpriced. Anyway, to the beer. Pale golden, fluffy white head. Aromatic ? Not really. The nose was far from intensive, but kind of pleasant, malt and lemon. Taste ? Again, lemon, and malt, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Not much body. After I left it to get a bit warmer, something happened. It started smelling malty, but in a disgusting way. I guess those are the "strange emanations" an earlier rater mentioned. The same thing reflected in the taste. So, pleasant while fresh and cold, but not really stable. I drank better.

A good premium lager.

A vile cheesy, pea soup is growing underneath the hop-covered haystack...A nonetheless pleasant hop bitterness manages to thwart the oddness and is lifted by a creamy malt tonus...Working out in the sun can be rejuvenating, but after a while strange emanations start to appear...

Floral hops with vegetal undertones. Clear, golden blond with lasting white coverof head and nice bubbly carbonation. Hay, grassy hops, strong pils malt character with restrained bitterness. Refreshingly crisp palate and nice strong carbonation. Bottle enjoyed with MartinT and Rastacouere.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 26, 2004
Clear blonde, low carbonation, honest white head. Aroma would gain from having more malt goodness. Something like grassy corn disturbs the balance a good bit. Palate is very dry, salty, once again not quite malty enough. Rural field and hay flavours. Somehow astringent cement like finish. It’s not as bad as I make it sound though.. Highly carbonated, sharp thin-medium body.

omhper (18963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2004
Bottled. Pale golden, brief head. Sweet and malty with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Fairly low bitterness. Fairly well made, but unadventurous.

leaparsons (7801) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2004
Light gold in colour, pours with a large head of foam (that disappears quickly). Aromas are yeasty and metallic with some spice. Flavours are soft buttery malts with grain and a hoppy dry metallic finish that ebbs away pretty quickly. Still, it went down well so it can’t be too bad.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 19, 2004
Bottled. Pale golden. Malty aroma with cocoa notes and some nuttiness. Initially hoppy but finishes with a question mark. It started out good but died somehow. Like the first half of Sweden-Italy.
