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!

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.

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
