tom10101 (2943) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
On tap @ Brauerei im Füchschen. Clear orange/copper with a small off-white head and good/heavy lacing. Aroma is mineral with toffee notes and toasted cereals. Taste is more toffee forward with toasted malt, earthy notes and light bitterness. Medium body. Light carbonation. Lingering mineral finish. Decent Altbier. Tasty but not too much. Drinkable but not too much. Good balance.

Swaroga (1397) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2014
Butelka 50cl. OCZY : piwo ma kolor czerwonej miedzi ze złotymi odcieniami. Piana jest niewielka o kolorze białym. NOS : na pierwszy niuch wyczuwam aromaty czerstwego ciemnego chleba, metalu, ciemnego miodu. Po wstrząśnięciu nuty słodowe się uwypuklają do tego dochodzą nuty kwiatowe. Ogólnie zapachy są średnio intensywne. USTA : średnio gazowane piwo o tłustej teksturze i wodnistej konsystencji. Piwo jest subtelne. Gdyby nie bardzo ciekawa gorzkość i ziołowa cierpkość, która przypomina troszeczkę gałkę muszkatową, czarny pieprz mielony, ziele angielskie ale i przypaloną skórkę od wiejskiego chleba to piwo byłoby jednowymiarowe. Całe szczęście te ostatnie pozostają na długo w posmaku. Słodycz przypomina ciemny miód. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest moim pierwszym w tym dniu i zaskakująco satysfakcjonującym. Można spokojnie takie piwko pić kuflami i się nie znudzić. OCENA : smak : 7/10 pijalność : 9/10 styl : +1

77ships (4135) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
330 cl. bottle sampled @ Borefts 2014 Hotel Room tasting. Thank you! Clear golden, little white head. Caramel, ginger, spice, floral, bitter nose. Taste is bitter biscuit, malty, floral, sugar, hay. Biscuit body, lager feel. Okay but for a beer with a score this high…. Maybe I need it to taste locally?

Walberla (4) - Alingsås, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2014 does not count
Bra balans. Liknar en engelsk ale. I bryggeriets restaurang får man stora portioner och då räcker inte två glas.

Alengrin (2124) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
One of the great classics in its style, since 1848. Pretty, firm, moussy, snow white head, warm amber colour, clear. Powerfully malty aroma of walnuts, peanuts and caramel, peppery hops, grapefruit, dried leaves, white grapes. Strong nutty maltiness in the mouth, smooth and soft mouthfeel, medium carbonation, caramel acents, quite strong leafy, grassy and peppery hop bitterness ensuring a long finish in a very enjoyable dialogue with the crisp maltiness from the beginning. Exemplary.

prawlie (1154) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2014
Light orange-yellow with a foamy head. Smooth, dry, malty and bitter, good bite. This was a decent alt and one of the better ones in Dusseldorf.

Douberd (2343) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2014
Swing top bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a alt glass, ABV 4.8% Short BB date of only 5 days, I am drinking this now almost a week after the recommended date. Clear body, orange to amber in colour, with a small light beige head on top, a bit thin, with low retention. Initially soe sour notes on the aroma that seem to go away after the beer has breathed in the glass, has it gone off already? Light caramel too, some grass. Taste doesn’t show marks of the beer going bad. On the contrary. Nicely bitter from the first sip with the bitterness going all the way to the aftertaste, very faint caramel, hops, fruity notes too. Medium body with average carbonation, very dry palate. Overall very good beer, I imagine even better at the brewpub.

JulienHuxley (3288) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Pale ambergold pour with white head. Aroma of hay, bready, rich malted grain notes, toasted toffee, light caramel, hoppy. Taste is really well balanced, just the right sweetness, balanced by just a touch of bitter grass, light caramel, super quaffable. Palate is med-dry, light carbonation, light body. Really easy drinking, best Alt all day.
