tomer (2402) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 11, 2015
At a tasting, thanks Erzengel, small stable bubbly head, murky lightish brown color, aroma of almond and candy with earthy mushrooms, flavor of candy cardboard and wet wood, medium coarse bitterness. Not the best of alts, a bit past it’s prime.

King_Alex_II (790) - 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 (385) - 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.

Zlotta (569) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - 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 (2309) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, 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.
