Grzesiek79 (3307) - 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

Deep amber-brown; with a large aroma showing demerara sugar, burnt cherries, and a touch of peaty Highland malt. The palate brings a cornucopia of flavours - the demerara more pronounced, a toasty maltiness that reminds of a thick-crusted whole wheat bread fresh out of the oven, a touch of iron and a subtle mix of blackberries and cherries.

My favourite Alt beer when I lived near the brewery, well before BA’s came into being. I was very pleased to see this and the Ur-Alt for sale at ’Beers of Europe’ and ordered some straight away. Brown 500ml bottle, best before 5th Jul 09, drank 16th Mar 09. Poured into my old Bolten Alt 0.2 litre tankard three times, how we have both missed seeing it full of Alt. Beautiful deep amber, nut brown colour with a huge foaming off-white creamy head. The beer is clear and just a joy to see again. Never had a big nose, it however does possess an aroma of malted barley and hops, just enough to let you know you have a very good Alt in your hand (if you were blind and couldn’t see). The taste is also wonderful, a mix of malted biscuits (unsweetened), toasted brown bread and lightly smoked ham. I must admit it seemed a bit thinner than I thought I remembered, so its body let it down a little. Good flavour retension though, so it isn’t weak, just lacking that inner strenght I can recall. Very drinkable and I’m very glad I found it again.

Peppery nose. Brown creamy head. Full spicy taste, nice hops too and a roasted+bitterhop aftertaste.

Shaney (2427) - 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!

Jessop (207) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2013
Lovely amber in colour, scummy foam and no carbonation. Malty aroma very bready. Subtle bitterness followed by rich chewy malts, crusty freshly baked bread. Smooth easy to drink.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl). Dark brown almost mahogany-coloured beer. Decent head although it fades quickly. Nice, toffeeish body, slightly roasted tone and an incredibly delicious flavor. Distinct, but not dominating bitterness. 200903
