3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from biershop-bayern. Chestnut-amber colour, creamy off-white head. Malty nose with lots of lovely bitter hop elements. Full-bodied, hints of nuts, fruit (berries), aromatic and bitter hops doinate the lingering finish. Very similar so some very good Düssedorf Alts.

0.5 l bottle. Hazy dark amber color. Malty, nutty and sprucey aroma. Malty, nutty, resiny and firm bitter flavor with some berryish yeastiness. Firm malty and bitter taste but also some less pleasant weird resiny-woody and yeasty notes.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(swing top bottle) Hazy, amber golden colour with a mid-sized tanned foamy head. The aroma has something of an English Ale: moderately sweet cara-malty with fruity notes of citrus, pineapples and a touch of woody hops. Sweet and balancing bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with an almost creamy carbonated mouthfeel. Hearty cara-malty and slightly nutty taste with fruity hoppy notes; medium-dry sweet-bitter caramelly, slightly fruity hoppy and spicy finish. Reminds me of a Schumacher Latzen from Düsseldorf. 08.IX.10
