joe19612 (2618) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2016
GBBF 2016. Pours a clear brown colour with a tight beige head, aroma is soft sweet malt with some spices, the taste is medium bitterness with some fruit coming through with a bitter finish.

Ritzn (530) - Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2016
Hazy brown with little beige head. Aroma is dark fruits, chocolate, nuts, a little coffee and some lycheee. Taste is a very two dimensional experience of deep bitter nutty malts (however not very bitter) and carbonation induced sourness. Little bubbled mouthfeel as it should be. The finish is slightly watery chocolate bitterness. Not bad.

FinnIckler (99) - GERMANY - OCT 8, 2016
Tap at braustelle brauhaus. Pours brown. Smells faintly of something sweet, maybe toffee, but not much else. Palate is a mess of fruity sweet, but also malty toffee notes. Even some smokey notes. Weird.

The_Osprey (6630) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2016
August 2016 - At GBBF 2016, with the Scopeys, as ’Braustelle Ehrenfelder Alt’. Hazy brown, opaque, bubbly white head. Aroma is apple, rye bread, fruit loaf. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is resinous up front, twiggy, bready, light astringency. Decent enough alt. (3.4)

Scopey (12712) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2016
Cask gravity at GBBF 2016. It pours hazy mahogany brown with a decent off-white head. The aroma is soft, bitter - sweet, juicy, dried fruits, candy, toast, fruit cake, banana and light spice. The taste is crisp, bitter, pine, resin, dried fruits, wood, pine, resin, leather, dried fruits, juniper and earth with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Decent Alt.

ronaldtheriot (1799) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Ehrenfelder Alt has a thin-to-medium, cream-colored head, with rather big, soapy bubbles, some lacing left on the glass, and a very dark brown, with red highlights appearance. Lots of caked, brown sediment, at the bottom will give this beer a milky look, it that junk is swished loose and poured in. The aroma is of rich, dark bread, raisin, prune, and a touch of both wood and smoke. Taste is of those elements, with possibly some rounding bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Ehrenfelder finishes on the crisp end of it. RJT

javiercrasher (295) - Granada, SPAIN - MAY 25, 2016
De color marrón rojizo con una capa de espuma beis de retención media. Maltosa, con fondo ligeramente ahumado. Cuerpo medio y poca carbonatación. Moderadamente amarga, acaramelada con algo de fruta madura. Muy sabrosa. Sin rastro de lote, ni fecha de embotellado ni caducidad.

rumproasts (5054) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2016
bottle. Brown with one finger head. On the thin side, malty with nutty roast, and bit of astringent smokiness. Quite a bit of oxidation and cardboard. Finishes dry. Just seems slightly off.

ThirstyBird (2617) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle from erzengel - Thank you!! Pours a orange/brown with some haze and a tan head. The smell is roasted malt, brown sugar and some fruit. The taste is toasty, crisp fruit, brown sugar ending dry and roasty. Light+ in body with average carbonation. Not bad.

Salwal (355) - GERMANY - FEB 1, 2016
From the bottle at home dark brown with huge off white head. Nose is nuts and strong malty hints. Taste is bitter grassy hops typical light muddy altbier taste. Crisp and refreshing. I like it...
