The_Osprey (5463) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2015
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.

tomer (2733) - 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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks tomer. Hazy amber to brown color with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, cardboard, some skunkiness. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, dark bread, cardboard, and a bitterish finish. Light to medium-bodied.

King_Alex_II (1052) - 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 (471) - 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.
