Very delicious brew from my hometown Hamburg. A perfect thirst quencher and a real beer.

matbli (130) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Bottle 500 ml, pours clear amber with no head. Almost neutral in aroma with only a little bit of maltiness and sweet corn. Wood isn?t noticable at all. In taste very watery with only light sweetness and very light bitterness. Some very delicate sourness remains in the aftertaste. Completly no body. Without any bigger defects but more like a beer flavoured water.

RW80 (1226) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2015
33cl bottle Appearance: Clear reddish Amber, with a small white head. Aroma: Light smoky smell, light grainy, some malts. Taste: Burned grains, burned malts caramelised malts, ashy tones, bitter herbal hops, some maple syrup and then it becomes totally boring in te finish. light to medium body, slick mouthfeel, soft carbonation, Unbalanced alt, which seems to compromise unbalancedness with blendness. Dissapointing.

Cantabrian (927) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 10, 2015
Not sure whether this is my first Altbier ever, but if not, I would not be surprised. It is totally unremarkable. I’m sure the style must have something which is less boring than this...
