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.

Bottle from the Bierkoning. Clear brown, no head. Aroma is really toasty, toasted bread, caramel. Taste is sweet, toasty, very light caramel, really really bready malt. Palate is med bodied with light carbonation. Too heavy on the toasted malt I think, this is not so easy drinking.

Flesje meegenomen door @Douberd, tijdens het #UBF14. Volgens het etiket betreft het een bier van de oudste altbierbrouwerij vd wereld. schenkt als rood/bruin, helder met schuimige witte kraag. Ziet er in de zon super uit met die rode gloed in het heldere bier. Aroma is wat beperkt, een caramel en moutige boventoon zoals te verwachten. smaken zijn matig zoet, licht bitter, matig sterk, matig moutig van aarde en caramouten. licht body, dun en waterig van textuur, afdronk wat kruidig en droog. In de basis is het weer zo’n vlak en flets reinheitsgebot bier welke dun/waterig met zwakke moutigheid en carameltonen bevat,. ;t is niet slecht maar bijzonder is het nu ook weer niet.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 6, 2014
50cl bottle pours with a clear amber body that has thin copper edges and supports a dirty white head of foam that leaves behind some spotty lacing. The mild aroma offers up light malty notes, dry nuttiness and then faint grainy malts. The taste begins with thin layers of malts and caramel malts that head softly into a dash of nuttiness. It dries out a bit to midway as a light amount of earthy and spicy hops are noticed. It gets a bit of a metallic note from time to time which isn’t improving the experience. It ends with the addition of a mineral sensation as well as some faint sweet dark fruity esters. Decent

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2014
Flaska. Bärnstensfärgad med stort vitt skum. Doftar karamell och örter. Samma i smaken samt svagt av honung. Kolsyrig munkänsla. Ingen höjdar-alt.

gildnerk (126) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - FEB 4, 2014
Ein durchschnittliches Alt, natürlich etwas schmackhafter als die kommerziellen Diebels oder Frankheim, aber weder so aromatisch noch so vielfältig im Geschmack wie Uerige, Füchschen, Schumacher oder das Ur-Alt derselben Brauerei. Trotzdem durchaus genießbar.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2014
Bottle 500 ml at home, thanks to McTapps! Into an Alt glass, ABV 4.9% Amber brown colour on the body, two fingers of tan head, good retention. Thin film left on the surface of the beer and light lacing. Aroma of caramel, light toffee, soem straw too. Taste is malty, with burned caramel on the finish, along with unwanted metallic notes and a nice bitterness on the aftertaste that lasts for long. Medium thin body, quite carbonated. Dry on the palate. Overall okay alt, drinkable, even more when warmed up a bit.
