Bottle thx to benzai. Dark amber colour with little to no head, but it might be a little bit too cold. Smells malty, simple and okay. Tastes like a regular alt. Nothing really wrong with it, nothing great either. Fine carbo, thin body.

ladny kolor, doś fajny aromat, ale szczerze to chyba najgorszy niemiecki alt jaki pilem, niby ma typowy dla alta smak ale jakiś taki lurowaty i wodnisty, goryczka jakaś taka nieprzyjemna, na usprawiedliwienie piwa dodam, że piję go 3 dni przed terminem ważności

In August 2006 I wrote this on BA: This beer used to be a great example of an Alt Beer. Sadly something has happened (has Warstiener messed with the ingrediants?).
I used to buy 5 litre mini barrels of it when I lived in Germany. So when on holiday on the Mosel, I saw it on tap in a bar I happened to be in, I revisited it.
It is lighter, appeared weaker and almost tasteless, not the beer I remembered at all, very dissappointed!
Of course it may well have been only poor in the bar I was in, so please try it if you see it, and let me know if it was a one off on my part.
