NDmullet's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 17, 2003
Medium chestnut colored, thin head, lots of carbonation. Earthy malt and nutty aroma, like a cross between a dunkel and an English brown. Hazelnut and roasty malt flavors are quite distinctive, and intercepted by an adequate bitterness, touch of sourness. Light bodied, not as fizzy as expected, with a lingering finish. My first of the style, and I quite enjoyed it.

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2014
Draft in Düsseldorf. Pours another clear amber beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is malty, herbal nutty and earthy. Flavor is moderately sweet, some bitterness in the back and a nice malty sweet backbone. Decent balance, very good drinkability and another decent alt.

Frovigalning (2908) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
At a pub in Cloesfeld. Mild and bready smell. Taste of bread, toasted and roasted, caramel. Dry feeling. Feels unbalanced and hard to drink.

thomat (1977) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2014

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - JUN 12, 2014
A decent alt that would make a good session drink. Malty and earthy with a lingering sweetness. Also good value for money.

rozsoma (462) - HUNGARY - MAY 8, 2014
Egyszerű kis altbierecske, viszont a környezet annál nagyszerűbb hozzá. Egy templomból kialakított kocsma Willingenben. Isten bocsássa meg...

Chopper925 (112) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - APR 14, 2014
Poured into the glass it looks quite nice, smells slightly of malt. But the aroma is disappointing, nearly no taste of malt or hop, a bit watery and very bitter and dry in the aftertaste, which is, by the way, not very long. Not my type of beer, would prefer a Kölsch instead.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
Golden-brown, aroma has some earthy, caramelly character. Taste is similar, but with moderate bitterness coming through as well. Not bad for industrial alt.
