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!

Bamsen78 (3108) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps & MichaelAwesome. Pours slightly hazy amber with small white head. Dusty aroma with malty and hoppy notes and touches of yeast. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with dusty notes and touches of malt, yeast and raisins. Lingering, bitter aftertaste with touches of yeast and a little metal. A good Altbier, indeed.

Borresteijn (4639) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2014
On "tap" at Butcher’s Tears from a 5L mini-keg. Clear deep amber colour, soapy off-white head. Aroma is very sweet, syrup, lemonade, caramel, malts, some leafy stuff. Flavour is sweet, malty, caramel, leafy hops, grain, nice bitter finish. Light-bodied. Probably not in excellent condition, but still a nice beer.

On tap at Im Goldenen Kessel. Good appearance, nice clear copper, super forthy lacy off white head. Aroma is toasty, grainy, light hay-like notes, kind of hoppy, light caramel. Taste is bitter, hoppy (for an alt) light burnt toffee, tasty. Palate is light-med bodied, smooth light carb, dry. Very nice.

Erzengel (2561) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 17, 2014
Out of the cask at the brewery at Oststr. Malziger Antrunk. Zum Hauptteil recht herb, malzig-trocken. Würzig. Zum Ende hin malzig-trocken mit intensiver alt-typischer Herbe. Aber keinerlei florale Hopfennoten. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine herb-trockene Malznote. Lecker & sehr intensiv malzig-trocken-herb. 13/12/12/13
