Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 20, 2011
Bottled 50cl. Ordered from www.bierzwerg.de. It pours an amber beer with a bubbly beige head. Breadcrust, malt, honey and boiled vegetables (DMS in this top fermented beer?). Good bitterness. Dry finish. I was expecting a better Alt.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 7, 2011
Bottle. Mahogany body is clear with a fluffy, large, tan head on top. Leaves a thin bubbly ring with fair lacing. Lightly toasty, malty aroma. Bready, biscuity flavor with a hint of toffee and floral hops. Medium-light body borders on thin. Sweetness balanced by a firm bitterness. Medium carbonation and somewhat minerally. Lingering bitterness. Pretty good Alt.

Vaiz (3817) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear copper pour, foamy off-white head. Aroma is murky, grainy and malty with some spices. Flavor is slightly bitter, spicy, watery and quite clean. Not too bad.

JorgeLee (1423) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2011 Bottle. Deep brown in colour. Restrained but appealing aroma. Medium body with reasonably full very dry but perhaps a bit metallic finish. Pleasant and refreshing well made Altbier, but doesn’t set the world alight.

ElDesmadre (2273) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle. Dark amber with a frothy but quickly dissipating head. Malty aroma with caramel, quite heavy and bitter on the palate, some basement aromas. Not bad but disappointing. Also, significantly weaker than their Ur-Alt.

Koelschtrinker (12631) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Riecht etwas nach Seife. Das Alt ist recht mild, was schon im Antrunk deutlich wird. Der Antrunk ist leicht hopfig und führt in einen malzigen und würzigen Mittelteil, der aber wie gesagt recht mild wirkt. Mit der Zeit wird das Alt noch würziger, dennoch vermisse ich die Vollmundigkeit. Der Nachgeschmack ist weniger würzig und klingt mild und leicht röstmalzern aus. Ein stärkeres Altbier ist mir lieber. Test vom 3.11.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,9,9,8,12,9 - 9,10

Kristall-König (2475) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2011
Herb-malziger und vor allem säuerlicher Geruch, der nicht gerade erwartungsfroh stimmt. Auf der Zunge entfaltet sich der Geschmack herb, geradezu trocken. dazu kommen im gesamten Verlauf Bittereinflüsse, die nicht überzeugen, geschweige denn ins Gesamtbild passen. Boltens Alt ist kein Favorit.Test vom 3.7.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

booldawg (46) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
Took a bit of chance on this as I picked up a crate from a supermarket in Munchen-Gladback. Never tried the style before but happily impressed with this. More of an autumn/winter beer. Heavy caramel overtones in this full bodied, smooth chestnut coloured ale.

Hermod (4354) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2011
33cl bottle, flip-top. BB 07/2011. Poured dark amber with a steady white head. Very grainy, dusty aroma, some mineral notes as well. Flavor grainy malty, slightly bitter finish. Well balanced, medium bodied. One of the better altbiers I have tried.
