King_Alex_II (642) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 11, 2015
Muddy brown semitransparent color with an instant decaying foam head. The smell has some roasty malt notes. The taste is malty, a bit roasted and with nut aromas. A bit too much carbonation.

McSherman (327) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2015
Farbe: mittelbraun und trüb, mit etwas beigem Schaum Geschmacklich dominiert das Röstmalz nicht so sehr, wie bei anderen Altbieren. Die Hefe bringt eine zusätzliche herbe und säuerliche Note, die das Bier spritzig macht. Gefällt mir.

Sissio (891) - Orsenigo, ITALY - APR 19, 2015

Zlotta (317) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAR 30, 2015
0,5 l swingtop bottle from P&M Getränke, best before 08/06/2015 (4.9% abv). Slightly hazy, orangeish amber with a medium large, foamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Pleasant aroma of caramel, bread and nuts, even a bit of coffee in the background. Sweetish taste of nuts, bread and caramel. Short, slightly bitter finish with minimally metallic hints. Medium body, slightly creamy texture, lively carbonation. Pleasant, easily drinkable and harmonic but without something special. Just abolutely solid.

ThirstyBird (2190) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Pours a hazy orange/brown with a light tan head. The taste is roasted malt, earth, some fruit. The taste is in line with the nose ending a bit dry and slightly bitter. Light+, a bit grainy with average carbonation.

Erzengel (5526) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2014
* Old rating, 50cl swing-top bottle, best before 10.05.06. Schön weich-malziges, trocken-erdig-herbes Altbier. Die Hefe macht das Ganze vollmundiger und etwas weicher, die typischen Altbieraromen mit einer milden aber doch deutlichen Herbe passen gut ins Gesamtbild. Lecker!

Calisky (1673) - ALSACE, FRANCE - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle from trade with McTapps. Couleur caramel sombre, mousse qui disparait. Nez leger de chocolat, note rance, butterscotch. Gout caramel un peu toasté avec fin un peu rance, butterscotch, mais très bien balancé. Corps bien cremeux et fin longue un peu grillée Pas mal

jaghana (4653) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle 50cl kindly shared by Calisky. A dark amber beer, nose is intense on biscuit, dark caramel and brown bread. Aroma is sweet, on blond caramel and chocolate, body is a bit low, light diacetyl but that goes well with the beer, light wet paper too, bit grainy. Good stuff, finish has long duration on butterscotch and toasted caramel.
