lovibond (115) - New York, USA - NOV 19, 2011
At the brewery, 123 Oststr. Served in a 25cl Altbier tumbler. It may be a small serving, but its sensory delights more than compensate. Brilliant clarity; a little on the light side for typical Altbier, but this is one of the places where the Altbier style was defined! Creamy, long-lasting head. Aroma of resiny, herbal, even a little grassy, hops, hops, hops, with malt right behind. Phenomenal taste: extremely clean bittering, but massive dose of iso-humulone makes its presence felt mid-mouth and even a bit in the back. As in aroma, malt elegantly supports flavor. Finish is dry, and aftertaste is primarily of noble-type hops. A masterpiece!

Well, I suppose if I wrote comments about Alt-Bier from Duesseldorf, they wouldn’t be neutral. I just love the Alt-Bier from Duesseldorf. They are simply next to none. So, I judge all the beers from "Altstadt Duesseldorf" equally.

Tap at the bar and on the Brewery, 3rd June 15. Light in colour, lighter in flavour than others, taste is weak toffee, some slight banana. Easy to swill

Gangstergafje (337) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2015 The beer has a beautiful dark amber color and a slightly of-white layer of rough foam. The beer is crystal clear. The beer has a fresh smell. It has a nice amount of bitterness and a spicy touch. There is also a tiny refreshing sourness in the smell. The taste is equally nice. There is a nice little hoppy taste on the back of the tongue. Overall the beer has a lot bitternes. The beer gives a nice tingling sensation in the mouth. Really nice beer, I am gratefull i had the opportunity to try this one.

Scopey (9771) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottle at thepeter’s leaving drinks. It pours clear deep amber with a decent off-white head. The nose is earthy, rich malts, wood, leather, toasty brown bread and cereal. The taste is lightly bitter, toasty, bready malts, cereal, toasty grain, touch of grass, wood and light caramel with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, balanced and very drinkable. Easy going alt.
