4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

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.
