3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml swing-top bottle, 4.9%, BB Jan 2016 as ’Boltens Ur-Alt unfiltriert’. Murky, muddy brown, opaque, small thin off-white head. Aroma is wholemeal bread crusts, flour, savoury scone, touch of buttered popcorn. Body is light, tingly carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is bready, light salt, dark sugars. Burnt caramel finish. Has quite a traditional vibe, and I like that aspect. Quite enjoyable. A bit fizzy, leading to much belching.

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.
