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!

Erasmus_ro (2387) - Alabama, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Tap @ Im Golden Kessel, Düsseldorf. Pours a slightly paler dark red brown than Uergie’s. Large bubbled head with some yellowish brown to it. Aroma is fairly mild. Taste is somewhat fruity, dark malt, slight herbal, light earthiness. Dries up on the finish. Definitely a different take than Uerige.

Tap (Schumacher, Dusseldorf)
Mahogany, large bready head. Head tastes utterly delicious, Super fruity aroma. Refreshing palate. Amazingly fruity taste, nutty too, a bit woody. Absolutely lovely brew, attenuation perfect, hopping gently metallic and vapoury in the finish, some dry nuttiness too. Makes you want another one, which is the best thing a beer can do.

szeli (253) - GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
Sehr "kölsches" Alt. Verhältnismäßig mild, sehr ausgewogen. Leichte Süße und Karamell, zudem feine Hopfenbittere, nicht zu stark. Süffig!

(Flasche) Es hat eine bräunliche bis kupferne Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist Puddingplunda, leicht metallisch und süßlich. Der Geschmack ist wie das Aroma nur leicht pappig. Die bittere ist grün.
