3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl sample in "Alles IPA - Craft anders" ProBierClub seminar, Braukunst Live 02/2014. "The oldest Altbier of the world". Unfiltered, pours a hazy dark amber-maroni. This creates expectations, but then there’s also hop extract use indicated, next to hops. Very rich yeast profile for a dry and woody, nutty Alt. Herbal leaf tea livened up and made fruity by yeast.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Swing top bottle 500 ml, from McTapps, thanks Sabine! Into an alt bier glass, ABV 4.9%
Amber brown in colour, good activity in there. Two full fingers of tan head, thick, with great retention. Medium lacing left on the glass.
Aroma of malts and quite a bit of caramel, along with toasted nuts.
Taste matches the aroma, malts and caramel, becoming a bit nutty on the finish. Good bitterness on the aftertaste with a short duration.
Medium thin body, average carbonation, towards the low side.
Overall quite good and very drinkable, without being extra-ordinary.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A cloudy, somewhat brownish beer. It has a firm and lightbrown layer of foam. A pleasant aroma of baked bread. it tastes somewhat bitter/sour. The aftertaste is bitter and doesn’t leave for a while. it leaves a dry palate.
Een troebel, bruinig bier. De schuimkraag is stevig en lichtbruin. Een goed aroma van vers afgebakken bruin brood komt je tegemoet. De smaak is enigszins bitterzuur. De nasmaak is bitter en blijft achter in de mond hangen. Droge afdronk.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from McTapps - thank you so much, Sabine! Pours hazy dark amber with stable off-white head. Slightly dusty aroma with notes of hops, malt, caramel and yeast. Dusty and bitter flavour of hops with sparse malty notes. Rough aftertaste. A decent Altbier, despite the watery tones.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
from bottle. pours a dark and hazy copper colour with a frothy beige head that disappears instantly. the aroma is quite interesting for an alt as it combines the typical alt characteristics, such as malty nuttiness and caramel, with subtle yeast and basement notes. light to medium body, average carbonation and watery texture. quite a good balance between crisp and clean hoppiness and decent maltiness. it even has a slight trace of sourness to it, ending in a slightly bitter aftertaste. however, all in all it feels a bit thin and uncomplex though. but that does not make it less enjoyable. solid brew!
