Usko (171) - Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2013
Dark red coloring with a stable white head. Aroma is full oft chocolate, dark malt, bread and hints of herbal notes. Finish is dry and leaves a suprisingly empty mouth-feeling. Medium bittering and carbonation.

ThirstyBird (2187) - London area, Herefordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2013
Pours a clear reddish brown with a light tan head. Smell is roasted malt, brown sugar. Taste is roasted malt, brown sugar, fruit, mild hops bringing about a dry finish. Light body with average carbonation. Not up to Düsseldorf alt standards but certainly drinkable.

Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2013
500ml bottle from De Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Pours a clear, ruby-amber colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, bready caramels with a touch of toast and a slight cherry dark fruit note. Maybe a hint of roast and toffee. Flavor is similar. Slightly sweet and toasted caramels with some toffee notes and a light roast touch throughout. A few dark fruits towards the end before this finishes dry and lightly bitter with a slight sweetness. Fairly lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent Alt. On the sweeter side, but balanced enough to keep this easy drinking. Not bad.

Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2013
#85 Dunkeles Kupfer mit ordentlich weißem Schaum. Typisches Altbierflavour. Der Antrunk frisch und vollmundig. Röstmalzige Aromen im Geschmack. Dazu der typische Altbier herbe Nachzieher! Ein rundum gelungenes Altbier aus Korschenbroich, dass zwar nicht sooo genial ist wie das Ur-Alt aus denselbem Hause, aber immer noch zeigt, wozu die älteste Altbierbrauerei der Welt fähig ist!

MichaelAwesome (5729) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2012
Another Alt which seems to be just decent, mediocre or average. Malt in the dominance with a tender bitterness in the end. Not my style at all. Sad as it is.

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep brown-amber in colour with steady head. Nose of copper and malt. Taste of roast aromas, burnt caramel, light malt and nuts. Slight metallic finish.

Medium white head, clear hazelnut brown colour. Sweet honey-caramel aroma. Mildly roasty taste and likewise roasty coffee palate. Good one.

Grzesiek79 (3485) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 29, 2012
Dobry Alt z niesamowitą wysoką pianą, w dodadku bardzo zagęszczoną. Kolor ciemnego bursztynu. W smkaku karmelowo goryczkowe. Jedyny minus to słabo wyczuwalny aromat
